Jacare Souza StrikeforceThe Strikeforce: Rousey vs. Kaufman fighter salaries were released to MMAWeekly.com on Monday by the California State Athletic Commission.

The main bout at Saturday’s event featured Strikeforce bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey continuing her amazing unbeaten streak, racking up her sixth first-round armbar finish in as many professional fights. She submitted top contender Sarah Kaufman just 54 seconds into the fight.

The following figures are based on the fighter salary information that promoters are required by law to submit to the state athletic commissions, including the winners’ bonuses.

Although mixed martial arts fighters do not have collective bargaining or a union, the fighters’ salaries are still public record, just as with every other major sport in the United States. Any undisclosed bonuses that a promoter also pays its fighters, but does not disclose to the athletic commissions (specifically, pay-per-view bonuses, fight of the night bonuses, etc.), are not included in the figures below.
