Gilbert Melendez, Gegard Mousasi Top Lightly-Attended Strikeforce Event Payouts

Strikeforce Lightweight Champion Gilbert Melendez and former Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion Gegard Mousasi each made $150,000 for their efforts last Saturday at the promotion's event in San Diego, each nearly topping what the show generated in ticket sales.

The California State Athletic Commission released the numbers for the entire show Tuesday and MMA Fighting reported on them, revealing a paltry attendance of 2995 and a final gate at $154,075.

From high to low, here's the breakdown of who earned what Saturday. Like always, these don't include discretionary bonuses given by Zuffa:
