Former UFC lightweight talent Tyson Griffin took home $16,000 for his unanimous decision victory over “TUF” Season 8 winner Efrain Escudero ($5,000) in the Resurrection Fighting Alliance 4 main event on Friday night.

The card, which took place Nov. 2 at Texas Station in Las Vegas, had a total disclosed payroll of $82,350. The Nevada Athletic Commission released the figures Monday to Sherdog.com.

Other top earners for the event included four-time Octagon veteran Marcio Cruz, who pocketed $12,000 for his second round submission of Joe Yager ($6,000) and ex-WEC competitor James Krause, who garnered $8,000 for a 31-second stoppage of Guilherme Trindade ($1,500).

The disclosed purses reported by state athletic commissions do not include any performance-based or discretionary bonuses that may be awarded to a fighter by the promotion. Additionally, the reported figures do not reflect any deductions made by the commission for taxes, insurance, etc., and do not include any sponsorship money that a fighter may acquire for their performance.
