Wilcox Rakes Biggest Payday at Strikeforce Challengers 15

By Mike Whitman Apr 5, 2011
Headliner Justin Wilcox (Pictured) was the big winner following his one-sided demolition of Rodrigo Damm at Strikeforce Challengers 15, as “The Silverback” took home $16,000 for his efforts Saturday night.

Damm ($15,000) found himself on the defensive early, as Wilcox stalked the Brazilian with punches while Damm valiantly but unsuccessfully attempted to take the fight to the floor. The total disclosed payroll for the event, which took place April 1 at the Stockton Arena in Stockton, Calif., was $68,500.

The co-main event of the evening was also an action-packed lightweight affair, as AMC Pankration product Caros Fodor ($10,000) disposed of Cesar Gracie pupil David Douglas ($2,500) with a variety of strikes.

Additionally, Lorenz Larkin ($4,000) impressed in his Strikeforce debut, as the athletic striker earned a TKO victory over K-1 veteran Scott Lighty ($2,000).
