Now say Strikeforce said Fedor gets 10 million a fight will M-1 pick up 5 million of that?
No, I believe that they would get 10-15% of that, as "managers". But then they also get a certain portion of the overall profits of the card itself added on top. Maybe half, who knows though, We'll have to wait for the specifics of the deal to be released.
Essentially M-1 is being paid twice, as managers and as promoters, despite the fact that they are doing absolutely nothing whatsoever to help with promotion.
