Cris Cyborg paid $100,000 at Invicta FC 13, earned more than most weekend UFC fighters

Like Matt Brown, Stephen Thompson, and Gunnar Nelson, just to name a few.

Invicta Fighting Championship paid $162,000 in salaries to the 14 mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters who competed at last Thursday night's (July 9, 2015) UFC Fight Pass event in Las Vegas, Nevada.

$100,000 of it went to Cristiane Justino, who now operates under the ZUFFA banner.

The promotion's reigning featherweight champion needed less than a minute to smash Faith Van Duin, a match up that continued to draw cries of a Ronda Rousey "super fight" at some point in 2016. Of course, that can't happen until we first see if the Brazilian can make the 135-pound limit.

And perhaps win a fight or two once she does.

As for the rest of the female fighters competing last week in "Sin City," the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) has their payouts (via MMA Junkie) below.

Cristiane Justino: $100,000 (includes $50,000 win bonus)
def. Faith Van Duin: $6,000

Tonya Evinger: $11,000 (includes $5,500 win bonus)
def. Irene Aldana: $5,000

Champ Ayaka Hamasaki: $10,000 (includes $5,000 win bonus)
def. Herica Tiburcio: $5,500

Pannie Kianzad: $6,000 (includes $3,000 win bonus)
def. Jessica-Rose Clark: $2,000

Amber Brown: $4,000 (includes $2,000 win bonus)
def. Catherine Costigan: $2,000

Jamie Moyle: $4,000 (includes $2,000 win bonus)
def. Amy Montenegro: $2,000
