When it comes to Invicta FC 11's payroll sheet, there's Cristiane Justino and then there's everybody else. "Cyborg" pocketed a reported $90,000 for her 46-second knockout win over Charmaine Tweet at Friday's event, earning more than double what the entire rest of the card earned combined, according to figures released by the California State Athletic Commission and first reported by Sherdog.

The lopsided victory served as Justino's first defense of her Invicta FC 11 title, and ensured that the ferocious 29-year-old remained unbeaten since dropping her MMA debut in 2005. Tweet, meanwhile, earned $6,000 in the losing effort.

Invicta FC 11 took place February 27, 2015 at the Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles, Calif. The event aired live on UFC Fight Pass.

In the night's co-featured bout, up-and-coming strawweight Alexa Grasso ($5,000) secured a unanimous decision over Mizuki Inoue ($2,000) in an electric back-and-forth contest that stole 'Fight of the Night' honors.

In addition to the reported salaries, Irene Aldana joined Justino, Grasso, and Inoue in pocketing fight night bonuses for her work.

A complete list of the Invicta FC 11 salaries can be seen below. As always, these figures do not represent a fighter's total earnings, as sponsorship money and discretionary post-fight bonuses are not publicly disclosed.
