While I agree with you.. they have to protect their title..

You can have a title fight and then have your title holder go and fight for the competition...

Now if AA had won.. it would be easier to have Fedor/Randy...

no titles on the line and such.. 1 fight deals...

If Affliction hadn't paid Arlovski 1500000, and Tim Sylvia (750000?not sure of the figure but it was a BIG one,) then they would have generated an extra 2.25 million dollars to make up for the empty seats.

It was jsut a matter of time. Fedor had already taking notice of AA dropping his left.
Fighters like Anderson and Fedor usually take a little while to figure out their opponent before they let them have it.
The reason AA looked so good is because he was aggressive and had some great accuracy and handspeed.

I think all those things would make the generate more money. When you go charging more then the UFC for a freakin' tshirt bad things are bound to happen.
