The Nevada State Athletic Commission has released the official salaries for all of the contestants that competed in last Saturday’s “Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine” event.

Despite performing in the night’s co-main event, middleweight Robbie Lawler (Pictured) pocketed the card’s largest purse. “Ruthless” scored a flat $150,000 paycheck for disposing of Adlan Amagov.

Middleweight champion Luke Rockhold retained his crown against veteran Keith Jardine in the show’s featured attraction. Rockhold took home $90,000 for his 1stRound TKO victory, $25k of which came via win bonus.

Jardine, on the other hand, made $30,000 for his efforts.

The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas hosted this past weekend’s show.
