Over the weekend Roy Jones Jr.’s Square Ring Promotions hosted a hybrid MMA/Boxing card in Pensacola, Florida. Bobby Lashley and Omar Sheika topped the confirmed salaries, while Jones (via the promotion) took home two thirds of the event’s net profits, according to a report obtained by MMAJunkie.

In general the MMA fighters got a better pay day than the lesser boxers on the card. Only two of the MMA combatants received less than two thousand dollars on the evening, while six of the boxers did not reach that sum. Also, none of the boxers received win bonuses.
