A Closer Look At Fedor’s Affliction Deal

Many fans were shocked to find that Fedor Emelianenko ($300,000) took home less than half of what Tim Sylvia ($800,000) made according to the CSAC salary report.

What you may not know however, is that Fedor received what was termed a “significant” pre-fight bonus as well as the rights to his fight footage in several European countries.

M-1 Global was also featured prominently on the Affliction mats, which was no doubt part of the deal. The European promotion is headed by Fedor’s manager Vadim Finkelstein and will be able to use the fight footage from Affliction as well as the publicity to sell shows in Europe.
