Elite XC: 'Heat' paydays and salaries has received the fighter payouts from Elite XC: "Heat" from the Florida State Boxing Commission for the CBS event held on October 4 at the Bank Atlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida.

Main event loser and hometown favorite Kimbo Slice pocketed half a million dollars for his 14 second loss to "The Ultimate Fighter 2" alum Seth Petruzelli. Slice missed out on a $100,000 win bonus as well.

Petruzelli reported on a radio program earlier today that he made six figures for the win ... he was half right, according to the commission, anyway. He took home $50,000 for stepping up at the last minute and shocking the world.

The Affliction/Elite XC co-promoted heavyweight bout participants were paid out by the tee shirt company turned MMA organization. The former UFC champ Andrei Arlovski earned $500,000 for his second round technical knockout win. Roy Nelson walked away with $80,000.

Elite XC's other top two earners were Welterweight Champion Jake Shields ($50,000) in his first title defense and Murilo "Ninja" Rua ($35,000) in a loss.
