Ronda Rousey may have been the featured attraction of last Saturday night's Strikeforce: Rousey vs. Kaufman event, but it was former Strikeforce middleweight champion Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza who left with the biggest paycheck.
'Jacare,' who knocked out Derek Brunson in the first-round of their main card bout, earned a total of $94,000 for his win, with a $72,000 salary to go with a $22,000 win bonus.
The figures were released on Monday by the California state athletic commission, which sanctioned the San Diego event.
Rousey had the second-highest payday, earning a $20,000 purse along with a $20,000 win bonus for a total of $40,000.
