Proving that a famous last name sells, Kim Couture earned an event-high $10,000 at Strikeforce: Challengers on Friday at the Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kan.

Couture, the ex-wife of Randy Couture, was stopped by punches in the co-headliner to Kerry Vera, the wife of UFC fighter Brandon Vera. The women's fight came six days after the male counterparts fought at UFC 105.

Vera earned $4,000 to show and another $4,000 for her victory.

In the main event, Tyrone Woodley earned $3,500 to show and another $3,500 as a win bonus, while Rudy Bears won $2,500. Woodley submitted Bears with a triangle choke at 2:52 of the first round.

Couture was issued a 60-day suspension following the fight.

The four fighters in the co-headliners were the only salaries made available to FanHouse by the Kansas athletic commission.
