With fedor and hendo combine salary well over 2 mil
With highest tickets at event 350 plus no pay per view revenue
Ufc is not going to make a profit off this event
They make get that money from strikeforce deals but new deals when old one expire they won't get half of what their making

Wow Fedor is still making bank even after losing his mistique and suffering 2 losses in a row. Hendo is also making a bucket of money damn.

Fedor still is the most OVER RATED fighter to have ever lived, it gets proven and they still pay him far more then hes worth.

Notice there are no fedor die hards out here defending his pay. The more you look at it the more obvious it becomes why he didn't go to the ufc. All his fans defend this guy religiously but truth is the guys management milked every dollar they could out of his aurua and even after hes shown he's not as great as advertised therestill reaping the bennefits of negotiations that they clearly ran away with.


People want to know why the ufc hasn't merged with strike force yet ? Because Dana needs to let these god awful contracts work themselves out before he takes on these fighters into the ufc.

honeslty the last time the guy actually foght someon that was on his level at the time was the better part of a decade ago. Since his last fight with Big Nog everyone he fought was basically a can. I never could understand how anyone could claim he was "the best" when he had not fought the best since like 2005
