    "Affliction: Banned" official salaries: payroll tops $3.3 million

    by MMAjunkie.com Staff on Jul 21, 2008 at 8:10 pm ET
    [​IMG]Main-event winner and new WAMMA heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko earned a base salary of $300,000 for his first-round submission victory over Tim Sylvia, who earned $800,000.

    MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today received the list of salaries from the California State Athletic Commission. The event took place this past Saturday at the Honda Center in Anaheim.

    In addition to the headliners, other top earners included Andrei Arlovski ($750,000), Matt Lindland ($300,000) and Josh Barnett ($300,000).

    The total disclosed payroll for the event was $3,332,100.

    The full list of salaries included:

    Fedor Emelianenko: $300,000 (no win bonus)
    def. Tim Sylvia: $800,000

    Andrei Arlovski: $750,000 (includes $250,000 win bonus)
    def. Ben Rothell: $250,000

    Josh Barnett: $300,000 (no win bonus)
    def. Pedro Rizzo: $70,000

    Mark Hominick: $10,000 (includes $5,000 win bonus)
    def. Savant Young: $7,000

    Renato "Babalu" Sobral: $90,000 (includes $30,000 win bonus)
    def: Mike Whitehead: $50,000

    Matt Lindland: $300,000 (includes $75,000 win bonus)
    def. Fabio Nascimento: $20,00O

    Antonio Rogerio Nogueira: $50,000 (no win bonus)
    def. Edwin Dewees: $15,000

    Mike Pyle: $20,000 (includes $5,000 win bonus)
    JJ Ambrose: $5,000

    Ray Lizama: $3,000
    vs. Justin Levens: $6000*

    Vitor Belfort: $140,000 (includes $70,000 win bonus)
    Terry Martin: $30,000

    Paul Buentello: $80,000 (includes $20,000 win bonus)
    vs. Gary Goodridge: $25,000

    * - Fight postponed due to time constraints. Both fighters paid negotiated salaries.

    Now, the usual disclaimer: the figures do not include deductions for items such as insurance, licenses and taxes. Additionally, the figures do not include money paid by sponsors, which can oftentimes be a substantial portion of a fighter's income. They also do not include any other special bonuses the organization may have paid its fighters.

    In other words, these are simply base salaries reported to the commission and do not reflect entire compensation packages for the event.

    also sylvia didn't get the whore at the end like fedor did, that was probably a concubine as a win bonus

    Fedor may have won in the ring, but Sylvia showed why he is the best in the business in his bank account.

    i doubt they plan on really making any money on their first 3 shows.
    if they break even their first year it would be a success.

    yeah, but it's no matter, cause in addition to 300k, he also got an affliction t-shirt. so that more then makes up for the 500k difference in pay

    all they need to do is join up with true religion jeans and they could just pay fighters in clothes instead of checks. :bowdown:

    Tim making 800,000 i know he beats the best but hes not a seller. HUGE mistake by Affliction, they would have been better off with AA vs Fedor and paying him that much.

    i disagree, they didnt pay that to comp the fighters what they deserve. There is no way in hell any of those fighters even requested close to those numbers.

    It just sent a message to every single fighter fighting for every other organization, "when your contract is up, give us a call."


    This just changed a lot of things.

    I feel the complete opposite, instead when Affliction goes belly up they will be running back to the UFC. Time will tell. :hsd: Hopefully they sold alot of shirts :bowdown:

    that's the thing, they dont need to make any money off of these shows. Shit, these inflated salaries may include rights to selling their signature shirts.
    3 mil in salaries to put on one of the best events ever, when you have Trump financially backing it is jack shit. It very well can backfire, but they will likely be willing to keep losing money (or shrinking their margins) till they topple the giant and then everything normalizes.

    Donald Trump is a man of making money. Hes not going to sit back and be like oh well ill fork over 2 mill. Fedor isnt making 300,000 there is still signing bonuses and not to mention how much money the actual event costs. Might have been 1 of the best events, but the questions remains how people bought it.
