    Here are the salaries reported by Strikeforce/EliteXC to the California State Athletic Commission for last Saturday's "Shamrock vs. Cung Le" event in San Jose.

    Gate: $1,117,855
    Attendance: 15,192 (14,710 sold, 482 exempt passes)

    Jesse Jones: $1,650 + $500 win bonus
    Jesse Gillespie: $1,200
    Darren Uyenoyama: $2,000 + $2,000 win bonus
    Anthony Figueroa: $2,000
    Tiki Ghosn: $6,000 + $2,000 win bonus
    Luke Stewart: $6,000
    Marlon Sims: $2,500
    Billy Evangelista: $5,000 + $5,000 win bonus
    Joey Villasenor: $18,000 + $18,000 win bonus
    Ryan Jensen: $6,000
    Mike Kyle: $10,000
    Wayne Cole: $5,000 + $5,000 win bonus
    Gilbert Melendez: $50,000
    Gabe Lemley: $7,000
    Drew Fickett: $5,000 + $5,000 win bonus
    Jae Suk Lim: $3,000
    Cung Le: $200,000
    Frank Shamrock: $300,000
    You can tell you sure that they were heavily expecting Shamrock to win because Shamrock got paid more than Le even though Le won the fight, basically he got screwed. My side note would be to laugh at Marlon Sims for only getting $2,500...haha.
