Rousey vs. Kaufman medical suspensions & payroll

By Josh Reese

Ronaldo Souza 41 second win over Derek Brunson led the Strikeforce payroll this past Saturday, he ending up taking home just under 3,000 dollars a second for a total of 94,000 dollars. The real shocker was how women made up the majority of the Strikeforce payroll with the 2, 3, and 8th highest salaries. T.J. Cook happened to take home one of the biggest beatings of the event and also the 2nd lowest pay, Cook took home 3,000 dollars after being KO’d by Ovince St. Preux in the start of the 3rd round.
