From our interview with Tom Atencio today
rest at: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.
