Strikeforce: Barnett vs Kharitonov Fighter Salaries


Strikeforce might be dying a slow and painful death, but that doesn’t mean that the fighters currently on their roster aren’t getting paid nicely while the ship sinks.  For instance, Strikeforce (aka the UFC) paid out almost a million dollars in fighter salaries for this past Saturday’s Strikeforce: Barnett vs Kharitonov event.  And, not surprisingly, Josh Barnett was the top earner at the event.
