Another thing to keep in mind is that M-1 Global was featured prominently in the ring that night. Affliction could have offered M-1 free advertising in exchange for Fedor's services and let M-1 pick up the rest of the tab for paying Fedor. That could be part of it as well.
And could someone tell me what the hell is up with the 8/9/08 campaign on here. I don't get it. Is that just advertising for the GSP/Fitch fight or something?
