Wow, for Griggs first fight in the UFC and lost. He still got pay more than Browne. Browne needs a better agent.

Griggs is more than likely still getting his Strikeforce contract pay.


I was more surprised Mayday is still getting a 8k base pay. I thought for sure he would be on a higher scale now.

Che Mills left the arena looking like a murder victim for $8k

I see, yeah you're most likely right about Giggs Strikeforce contract.

I missed that about Mayday pay rate. I thought for sure, especially after his past performances that he would be at least be around 16,000 per fight.
