    Default Affliction boss: Paying Arlovski $1.5mil "was a mistake"

    From our interview with Tom Atencio today

    Fighters Only: Arlovski got $1.5 million for that fight with Fedor. That is many times more than he was paid by the UFC when he was their heavyweight champion. Why are Affliction purses so high compared to the rest of the MMA industry?

    I can honestly say that’s a mistake we made in the beginning and it will never repeat itself. I like to pride myself on, if I make a mistake once I wont make it twice and if I do make it twice then I absolutely make sure it doesn’t happen a third time.

    Yep, when Affliction spoke to Fighters Only they said:

    “Whats happening right now is I’m sitting down with my partners and we’re going to work out [our next show],” he said. “We’re looking at three or four months, but right now we don’t have a date set.”

    How dare you. If Fedor wants them to plan their shows around him then I think they should plan their shows around him.

    Haha according to Dana White Fedor said to the UFC that if he was to sign for them then they'd have to build him his own stadium in Russia for them to hold an event in!
