    he essentially fucked it up for everyone, and every time I see anything written about him, it says something about being in the stages of filing various lawsuits.

    jeez, what a douche.

    from reading the MMAweekely report, it sounds like DSE Stiffed him out of almost a 500k.

    If someone fucked you out of money the promised you, wouldn't you sue them too?

    DSE fucked themselves over

    before this was let out, he said he was happy with the organization and was eager to continue to put on the best shows

    I was going to come into this thread and simply state that like most successful businessmen, he's aggressive in the way he handles himself and his money. I guess there's more to it than that? Someone hook up a link to an article about this, I'd like to know what it's all about.

    I was expecting this to be about Gary Millen.

    I dont think Fischman did anything wrong. The advertising wasnt the best, but he upheld his end of the agreement. Pride just figured they coculd stiff him on the money end

    I'm listening to him live on Beatdown, sounds pretty good on the issue about everything

    It was a lot more than 500k.

    His contract is:
    200k/year for 3-5 years
    and 10% of 30 scheduled PRIDE USA shows' ticket sales.

    By those #'s he is owed over 400k just from the first 2 shows according to Sherdog's Josh Gross, and is suing for 10 million.
