Lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez ($30,000) and Strikeforce newcomer Joe Riggs ($29,500) were the big winners at this past weekend’s Strikeforce show in Beverly Hills, Calif. The two main-card fighters — both of whom were victorious — received the biggest disclosed salaries from the event.

These guys are making comparable to UFC fighters, if you don't count UFC big-names

i dont know of anyone the ufc has paid only $500 to, for a win no less. to me the salaries look a little low in many of the fights with a few exceptions.

They are just starting ou tho, you cant expect a 1-0 guy on the prelims to get much more than $500 from a promotion like that, but anyone in the UFC should get a $10,000 minimum

Good pay days for Riggs and El Nino, that just means strikeforce will go broke quicker
