    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]- AFFLICTION "DAY OF RECKONING" FIGHTER SALARIES[/FONT]

    MMAWeekly has obtained the fighter salary information from the California State Athletic Commission for Affliction "Day of Reckoning" featuring Fedor Emelianenko vs. Andrei Arlovski, which took place on Saturday, Jan. 24, at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.

    The following figures are based on the fighter salary information that promoters are required by law to submit to the state athletic commissions, including the winners' bonuses.

    Although mixed martial arts fighters do not have collective bargaining or a union, the fighters' salaries are still public record, just as with every other major sport in the United States. Any undisclosed bonuses that a promoter also pays its fighters, but does not disclose to the athletic commissions (specifically, pay-per-view bonuses, fight of the night bonuses, etc.), are not included in the figures below.

    In the listings below, "Main Event Fighters" are defined as fighters who compete in the main event of a show. "Main Card Fighters" are defined as fighters whose fights appear on the main card, but not in the main event. "Preliminary Card Fighters" are defined as fighters whose matches take place before the main card goes on the air, regardless of whether or not those matches end up airing on the TV or Internet broadcast.


    MAIN EVENT FIGHTERS

    – Fedor Emelianenko $300,000 (no win bonus) def. Andre Arlovski $1,500,000 (win bonus would have been $250,000)


    MAIN CARD FIGHTERS

    – Josh Barnett $500,000 (no win bonus) def. Gilbert Yvel $30,000 (win bonus would have been $9,300)

    – Vitor Belfort $200,000 (includes $80,000 win bonus) def. Matt Lindland $225,000 (win bonus would have been $75,000)

    – Renato "Babalu" Sobral $90,000 (includes $30,000 win bonus) def. Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou $50,000 (win bonus would have been $50,000)

    – Paul Buentello $90,000 (includes $20,000 win bonus) def. Kiril Sidelnikov $10,000 (win bonus would have been $25,000)

    – Dan Lauzon $12,000 (no win bonus) def. Bobby Green $4,000 (win bonus would have been $4,000)

    – Jay Hieron $45,000 (includes $25,000 win bonus) def. Jason High $10,000 (win bonus would have been $5,000)


    PRELIMINARY CARD FIGHTERS

    – Antonio Rogerio Nogueira $150,000 (includes $30,000 win bonus) def. Vladimir Matyushenko $50,000 (win bonus would have been $30,000)

    – L.C. Davis $14,000 (includes $7,000 win bonus) def. Bao Quach $7,000 (win bonus would have been $6,000)

    – Albert Rios $6,000 (includes $3,000 win bonus) def. Antonio Duarte $3,000 (win bonus would have been $2,000)

    – Brett Cooper $10,000 (includes $5,000 win bonus) def. Patrick Speight $2,000 (win bonus would have been $3,000)

    These salaries are all pretty lopsided.


    and what the hell is up with 300K for Fedor? didn't he get a million for embarrasing Sylvia?

    The only thing I can think of concerning Fedor is that he is also getting a PPV %.

    It's something to do with how it'll be taxed in Russia or some shit.

    That or they're paying him with prototype cybernetic parts. :dunno:

    There is absolutely no doubt that Fedor is the highest paid fighter on the card. It's just not disclosed here.

    K-1 does this aswell. The official payouts are really low. But they get paid on the side somewhere where it doesn't get taxed as much. Arlovski is a US citizen (i think) so he only gets taxed once. Fedor I think gets taxed more as a non-US national.

    They can afford it because they sell tshirts for $90 that cost $10 to make, and a lot of people buy them.

    Yeah... my question is, why did they give coleman/shogun FOTN if it was just to get more money in colemans pocket? why not just give it to him under the table?
