Quoteworthy:

“… Emelianenko received a sizable part of his Affliction contract up front in the form of a signing bonus, and added that Emelianenko also owns the rights to his fight footage in several European countries. That second part may not mean much right now but if Affliction chooses to hold an event in Europe, they would have to pay him for the footage.”

That makes more sense. When I saw the fight payouts I thought Fedor got robbed when you compare his money to Big Tim’s.

Yeah, I knew there was more to this story. I always figured that since Affliction was technically co-promoting with M1 that Fedor must have had contract money flowing in from somewhere else. Otherwise the payouts from Banned just didn't make sense.

Anyone with half a brain knew Fedor got paid more. The man dominates the negoatiation game almost as much as he dominates the fight game.

Owning the rights to your own videos is one of the smartest things you can possibly do. It's like bands owning their own music and not letting the record label rake in all their profits. Of course, you can only achieve this kind of negotiation power if you've got a product that no one else can even compare to. Led Zepplin in music, and Fedor Emelianenko in MMA

Yeah this doesn't come as a shock. I have been saying this since they posted the pay for Affliction. This should at least shut the anti UFC people for a little bit.
