Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Daley Fighter Salaries

Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz earned $175,000 at this past Saturday's Diaz vs. Daley event in San Diego, Calif., according to salaries released Wednesday by the California athletic commission.

Paul Daley, who came up short in challenging Diaz for the belt by TKO with three seconds left in the first round, went home with $65,000.

Check out the rest of the reported salaries after the jump.

These salaries are reported by Strikeforce to the California athletic commission. As always, these numbers are not entirely accurate representations of a fighter's complete fight earnings, as possible post-fight bonuses and sponsorships are not included in the commission's report.
