Strikeforce Challengers 10 Fighter Payouts & Ratings

MoneyThe ASBC has released the fighter payouts for Strikeforce Challengers 10. Keep in mind, these figures represent the base contracted pay the fighter receives from the promotion. These figures do not include any additional bonuses or sponsorship money, which in many cases exceeds a fighter’s base pay. These numbers also do not account for taxes, insurance, and license fees.

Miesha Tate came away from Strikeforce Challengers 10 with the women’s welterweight tournament crown and the biggest paycheck of the evening. Tate earned a total of $18,000 for her duel wins over Maiju Kujala and Hitomi Akano. Joe Riggs was close behind with a $15,000 payday in the main event while Ryan Couture earned $3,000 for his first professional fight. That’s 1.2% of the disclosed paycheck his father Randy last earned at UFC 109 ($250,000) if anyone’s wondering.

The ratings for Strikeforce Challengers 10 are also in. The event attracted an average audience of 237,000 viewers on Showtime, and oddly peaked at 280,000 viewers during the Liz Carmouche vs. Colleen Schneider tournament reserve fight. SF Challengers 10 fell behind SF Challengers 7 (316,000 during free preview weekend) and SF Challengers 8 (249,000) but ahead of SF Challengers 9 (197,000)  and SF Challengers 6 (189,000) in average viewership.
