Fedor Emelianenko Actually Make 1.6 Million At Affliction

0

From Fightline.com:

Yesterday, a very reliable source informed Fighline.com that Fedor Emelianenko received a “substantial” bonus before his fight with Tim Sylvia. Today, Fightline.com has learned that the bonus was 1.3 million dollars putting Emelianenko's final take at 1.6 million dollars. Quite substantial.

Eyebrows were raised when the California State Athletic Commission released the promotions payouts and it was revealed that Emelianenko ($300,000) received less than half of what his opponent Tim Sylvia ($800,000) received; this after Fedor demolished Sylvia in under a minute.

Emelianenko's bonus plus his base salary coupled with securing advertising for M-1 Global and the rights to his fight footage in Europe possibly represents a very sweet deal for the popular Russian fighter and certainly one of the best deals for a single fight in MMA history.
