    I suppose. Somebody has got to have some hope for him...

    Ok, just kidding, I'm sure it will be a good fight, but I see GSP winning.

    Maybe Dana is doing another one of his "big announcements"

    Edit: Nevermind. I think I know what it's about now.

    Madden is 8/12/08. I'm counting down on that one myself.

    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?

    The real question in my mind is, "How much of the money is actually going to Fedor, and how much exactly are his handlers getting?"

    Yeah makes sense and I was sure there was something else that contributed to Fedor getting paid just 300,000 when Sylvia got much more. I'm sure his signing bonus was a hell of a nice number in order to secure him.

    The signing bonus is more then likely to protect Fedor from getting taxed out the ass here in the states and then getting taxed again in his home country.
