Strikeforce further compensates Miller & Davis

source: bloodyelbow.com
 

Bloody Elbow spoke to Mike Afromowitz of Strikeforce this evening and was informed that Strikeforce has decided to pay both fighters their contracted win bonuses.

The quote on the resolution:
    ..the resolution to this is that both fighters got paid their appearance fees and we're paying them their win bonuses.

On Strikeforce's attempts to follow through on the match-up:

Did they count it against their contracts? As a bout that is? Maybe Towe can explain?
