Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza (Pictured) should be sporting a giant Kool-Aid smile. The former Strikeforce middleweight champ pocketed a cool $94,000 for just 41 seconds of work this past Saturday.

Despite serving as the event’s biggest superstar, bantamweight queen Ronda Rousey earned only $40,000 for submitting Sarah Kaufman in the show’s featured attraction. Half of Rousey’s paycheck came courtesy of a win bonus.

Miesha Tate, who Rousey torched in March to take the 135-pound crown and fought in the card’s prelims, pocketed $38,000 for beating Julie Kedzie.

Please keep in mind, the numbers that get reported to the athletic commissions are only of what’s required. These figures do not include deductions for items such as licenses and taxes.

Additionally, they do not contain money paid by sponsors.

Valley View Casino Center in San Diego hosted this weekend’s festivities.
