It took a little more than a year, but Sarah Kaufman and Jessica-Rose Clark have finally been compensated for their fight in South Korea in March 2017.
On Monday, both Kaufman and Clark confirmed via Instagram that they had been paid by Battlefield FC. According to a report from MMAFighting.com, Kaufman received $20,000 on Monday, while Clark got $7,000. Meanwhile, Joe Ray, who lost to Igor Svirid via first-round submission in the main event, also garnered $7,000 owed to him last week.
Kaufman has competed once since then, earning a unanimous decision over Pannie Kianzad at Invicta FC 27. Clark, meanwhile, has won three straight, including triumphs over Bec Rawlings and Paige VanZant in the UFC.
“Today is the day [Battlefield FC] made right on our contracts and paid both jessy and myself,” Kaufman wrote. “While still professionally unacceptable, I am very happy they have worked hard to make right on the situation.”
