UPDATED: "EliteXC: Heat" Payroll Released

Jeff Sherwood just reported the following payouts on the "Savage Dog Show." The numbers come from Sherdog's Loretta Hunt.

Seth Petruzelli - $50,000

Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson - $500,000

If these numbers are accurate, then the reports that we were hearing on fight night - that EXC had to sweeten the pot considerably to get Kimbo to take the bout - would appear to be true. In his last two fights for the promotion, Ferguson earned $175,000 (vs. Tank Abbott) and $250,000 (vs. James Thompson) in disclosed salary.
