Nick Diaz and Evangelista Cyborg slugging it out

The California State Athletic Commission has released the final numbers for the Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Cyborg event in San Jose, Calif., including salaries and gate receipts from the Jan. 29 card.

A total of 9,059 fans attended the Saturday night card with gate receipts totaling $533,214.50.

The commission also released all the fighter salary information for the card. Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz lead the way on the financial side of things, with former NFL veteran Herschel Walker taking a surprisingly low amount, which lends to the theory that he really is doing this just for the love of the sport.
