I think it is about time for fedor to realize that his management is sleazy!!!!! and have been fing him over for some time now.
Fing him over by making him the highest paid mma fighter ever. He has been making 1,000,000 + per fight since his Pride days lol.
He isn't the highest paid fighter in MMA. A lot of the upper guys in the UFC get a cut of the PPV buys and that can add up to 1mil easy plus the under the table bonus and their normal show plus win pay. Then if you add FOTN, KOTN, and SOTN. To name a few that get PPV cuts and its changes fighter to fighter of how much of a cut they get. You have Randy, Chuck, Rampage, GSP, Penn, Anderson, Wandy, Mir, and Brock. Tito also got a large cut of the PPV buys when he was with the UFC. There for a while Tito was 2nd highest paid fighter just behind Chuck. Most likely Evans gets a cut now that he signed a new contract extension. There are also a few more but I think you get the point. I'm fairly sure Chuck is still the highest paid MMA fighter. Now that's not to say Fedor isn't up there but he isn't the highest.
But lets say for a sec he is the highest paid fighter in MMA. Is that really smart for a company that can barely fill the seats and has lack luster PPV buys? I like Affliction but they are just going about it all wrong. You cant start a company and expect to compete with the UFC. It takes years to build a brand and it doesn't happen over night. So now Fedor will have worked for 3 company's that have all failed. Its will happen to Affliction its just a matter of time.
