MoneyThe OAC has released the fighter payouts for Strikeforce “HWGP Semi-Finals.” 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.

The four heavyweight grand prix semi-finalists all earned six-figure payouts on Saturday night. Josh Barnett made $150,000 while Sergei Kharitonov, Daniel Cormier and Antonio Silva each pocketed $100,000 checks. King Mo, Roger Gracie, Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, Luke Rockhold and Rafael Feijao all made $50,000+.
