We can't use the affliction payscale for awhile. I don't care if they pay all of there fightiers 100k, if they fail to make a profit as a fight league and go under in a year then it is all pointless.
If Affliction is still around and strong 2, 3, 5 years from now, then we can use it as a comparison. Otherwise we can't.
I think with the coming affliction event we will see the big names get paid big, but in future events the no name guys will be getting the 1k, or 2k to show/win.
I guess the overall point I am trying to make is you cant use a company that might not last as a comparision until AFTER it has proven it will be around for awhile. This will take more than 1 event.
