 Though I hate seeing Jardine lose, I'm glad he made $30,000 to be a warm body for 2 minutes or so!

This is why the likes of Mo, Gegard, Melendez are happy to stay in SF.They are on meaty contracts which wouldn't be matched in UFC.Also reason there isn't FOTN bonus in Strikeforce, Can't afford it with high flat salaries.
