Moosin payouts

We often see UFC and Strikeforce pay figures after events, but how often do you get to see what fighters are getting paid on smaller shows? The Boston Herald has the payouts for Moosin’s God of Martial Arts PPV event, which I’ve reorganized here for you here from highest paid to lowest:

Mariusz Pudzianowski: $110,000
Tim Sylvia: $50,000
Rafael Natal: $14,000 (includes $7,000 win bonus)
Mike Campbell: $12,000 (includes $6,000 win bonus)
Travis Wiuff: $10,000
Roxy Modafferi: $6,000 (includes $3,000 win bonus)
Travis Lutter: $4,000
Forrest Petz: $4,000 (includes $2,000 win bonus)
Lukasz “Juras” Jurkowski: $3,500
Josh Barnes: $3,400
Yves Edwards: $3,000
Ho Jin Kim: $3,000
Tara LaRosa: $2,500
Fred Belleton: $2,000
Matt Lee: $2,000 (includes $1,000 win bonus)
Anthony Lapsley: $2,000 (includes $1,000 win bonus)
Stipe Miocic: $2,000 (includes $1,000 win bonus)
Paul Barry: $1,500
Ralph Johnson: $1,200
Brett Oteri: $1,000

It’s interesting to see Tim Sylvia back down at 5 figure paydays after pulling 800,000 bucks in his Affliction gig against Fedor. I suppose 50 grand ain’t so shabby after a year of fighting nobodies in the Midwest. Also interesting: the fact that you can hire Tara LaRosa to fight for 2500 bucks (so long as she loses). That’s four LaRosas you can get for the price of one Travis Wiuff. You can also get 27.5 losses out of Travis Lutter for the price of one Mariusz Pudzianowski loss. But does Travis Lutter turn red like a giant dog penis after 30 seconds of exertion? I didn’t think so.
