Invicta FC 11 payouts and salaries: Cris Cyborg takes home $90k of $134,000 total payroll

Just around double than what the rest of the field combined took home that night.

Cristiane Justino may not be plying her trade under the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) banner (yet), but her bank account will never know the difference.

According to the recent disclosed payouts and salaries (courtesy of Sherdog), "Cyborg" banked a whopping $90,000 for her 46-second knockout of Charmain Tweet at Invicta FC 11, which went down on Feb. 27, 2015 in Los Angeles, California.

While that may be good news for the striking specialist, it's bad news for the rest of the card, as the other 15 participants had to split the remaining $44,650.

Check it out:

Cristiane Justino: $90,000 (includes $45,000 win bonus)
Charmaine Tweet: $6,000

Alexa Grasso: $5,000 (includes $2,500 win bonus)
Mizuki Inoue: $2,000

DeAnna Bennett: $6,000 (includes $3,000 win bonus)
Norma Rueda Center: $1,500

Irene Aldana: $3,400 (includes $1,400 win bonus)
Colleen Schneider: $3,000

Jamie Moyle: $3,000 (includes $1,500 win bonus)
J.J. Aldrich: $1,250

Amy Cadwell Montenegro: $3,000 (includes $1,500 win bonus)
Brianna Van Buren: $1,500

Christine Stanley: $3,000 (includes $1,500 win bonus)
Laura Salazar: $1,500

Aspen Ladd: $3,000 (includes $1,500 win bonus)
Ana Carolina Vidal: $1,500

While there is no comparing UFC's bankroll with that of Invicta's, "Cyborg" did pretty good for herself when compared to some of the salaries dished out at UFC 184, which went down a day later in "The City of Angels;" earning more than Holly Holm ($50,000) and Raquel Pennington ($10,000).


Cris came up just short of equaling Cat Zingano's purse of $100,000 for her efforts against women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey (video). In fact, Cyborg out-earned 19 of the 22 UFC 184 competitors, including names like Josh Koscheck ($78,000) and Mark Munoz ($47,000).

Not too shabby.

That's still miles apart from what Rousey will eventually bank for her 14-second beatdown of Zingano, as she is expected to earn well over $1 million once pay-per-view (PPV) numbers are tallied. That's more than all of the purses dished out at Invicta FC 11 and UFC 184 combined.
