Why Fedor Salary So Low?

Why is Fedor's salary so low? Seems odd to me...


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


– 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)

– 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)


Bonus, piece of PPV buys, % of Russian mob money, salary from Russian mob, etc.

Andre Arlovski $1,500,000 (win bonus would have been $250,000)
Are you kidding me!!!!!!
Doesn't seem right!

Fedor also gets to keep Andrei's soul.

I don't know how anybody could justify Arlovski's payday.

Lindland and Belfort cleaned up! They have got to be among the highest paid fighters that aren't top 10 in their division and they are probably making more money than the majority of the top 10 middleweights.

 youhave no idea how much more they're paying him under the table

Are were that Arlovski salary isn't a typo? Maybe it was $150,000? If it's not then WTF justifies such a fat check for AA?! I mean good for him that he got paid serious bank but Fedor and Josh who are both better fighters and have done much more deserve more

IF true that's insane overpaid for sure... UFC pays that in 3 events....

Fedor's team gets Affliction tshirts for life .. secret bonus under the table

PLEASE! The most disturbing part of that payroll is that fighters are making 2,000 to fight. What the hell is that? I thought Affliction was for the fighters, like Tito says? How can that be when guys are walking away with $2K to fight?
That's not helping the fighters. FUCK Affliction, TTT for the UFC.

Steve Montgomery -  youhave no idea how much more they're paying him under the table

 Neither do you.

Fedor, Arlovski, Rogerio, Belfort, Lindland, and Barnett all made "main event" money on the same card. Whether they deserve the paychecks or not is immaterial. That many guys on the same event making that much is a bad sign for a fledgling org. How can Affliction possibly sustain that?

he really made like 2 million, but he has to hide it from the Russian Gov.

How much was Fedor's signing bonus?

Arlovski = overpaid

That's not helping the fighters. FUCK Affliction, TTT for the UFC.

^^ Paid UFC poster.

 IMO they aren't even close to what they should be getting( although they are slowly getting closer). Look at the main cards of boxing events.....

Mike Russell - Fedor also gets to keep Andrei's soul.


 Dude that's afflictions side of the payroll.  Do you guys not remember that Fedor is also being paid by M1 global?  They pay him a whole nother amount of money that obviously isn't being told.
