Ring Card Girl Nicole Craner says Strikeforce didn’t pay her

New Shark Fights ring card girl Nicole Craner talked with ‘Tuf Crap Radio’ recently where she explained that  her experience with Strikeforce was not the best as she was stiffed $400 for her last job.

“I got into [Strikeforce] because I knew Scott Coker’s step son and I sent him my pictures and he gave me the job,” Craner told Mitch Ciccarelli on TUF Crap Radio.

“I was really excited about it because, like I said, I’ve always had a passion for [MMA]. I was living in San Jose, [California] and Strikeforce was right there so I really enjoyed it,” Craner said.

“But for me it’s such a passion of mine and I’ve always considered it a job. It wasn’t just something that I would do in my spare time,” Craner said.

“It was just something that I was very passionate about and I think when you’re an organization like the UFC, they value their [Octagon] girls. They treat them well, they’re part of the family, and that’s something that I wanted to do with Strikeforce.”

“With Strikeforce I can honestly say that I don’t think Scott Coker even knew my name. I don’t think he knew any of his ring girls’ names and I’ve never really talked about this before, but it came down to not getting paid; And for me, I treated it as a job and I put a lot of effort into it and when you’re not respected or valued enough, it makes you want to go somewhere else.”

“So I mean you can pay Frank Shamrock 340,000 dollars to lose but you can’t pay your ring girl 400 bucks?”
