The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) today made available the list of fighter payouts and salaries for those fighters who competed at the World Series of Fighting (WSOF) 3: "Fitch vs. Burkman" event last Friday night (June 14, 2013) at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The results shouldn't surprise you.
They probably did on Friday night; however, as Josh Burkman was able to avenge his loss to Jon Fitch in less than a minute, choking out the former UFC welterweight number one contender and doubling up his payout at a cool $32,000.
Fitch banks $30,000 in defeat.
Fellow UFC veterans Jacob Volkmann and Dan Lauzon also hit double digits following their respective wins in "Sin City." The artist now known as "Feelgood" scored $14,000 for outpointing Lyle Beerbohm ($15,000), while "The Upgrade" cashed in $12,000 for outworking John Gunderson ($6,000).
That's not all.
