Strikeforce Challengers 17 Fighter Salaries

The fighter salaries are out for this past Friday's Strikeforce Challengers 17 event from the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas and all winners on the televised card earned five figures.

Headliner Bobby Voelker made $11,000 for his TKO win over Roger Bowling, who walked away with $4,500.

Former Strikeforce champ Sarah Kaufman earned a gross purse of $10,000, but after paying her license, tax and medical expenses, was paid $6,696. Kaufman did not receive a win bonus because her contract stated she would only receive a win bonus if the fight ended via submission or (T)KO.

Check out the rest of the salaries below.

Please note, these are the purses Strikeforce reported to the Nevada state athletic commission and does not include other earnings such as sponsorships and other potential bonuses.

Also, these gross purses are before license, tax and medical expenses.
