carano coker santosCalifornia State Athletic Commission has released the officially reported paydays for the fighters on this past weekend’s Strikeforce: “Carano vs. Cyborg” event held in San Jose.

Notably, Gegard Mousasi was only paid 2,000 dollars for turning in one of the best performances of the night. It’s possible he was taken care of financially by his management and co-promoter M1 Global. Also worth mentioning is Gina Carano’s pay has significantly risen since signing with Strikeforce after the collapse of Elite XC.
