Wow, no wonder Andre felt the UFC disrespected him!

That is what, one of the highest salaries for a fighter?!

I mean he was a top earner at the UFC, but that amount is astronomical, maybe the first payment included a sign up bonus?

They seem quite good payers at Affliction but you wonder whether they can keept that up, depends on how well the show done i guess!

Holy poo, 1.5 million for Andre?!?!?! Wth. Wow. Must be nice to lose and still come home with fat pay check like that. I don't think I've ever seen a fighter get payed that much.

For the same reason that Fedor doesnt get a win bonus

They knew what the outcome would be...Fedor was bound to win, dont waste bonus money, Arlovski bound to lose...compen-bloody-sation

Yes, that is the sad thing about Affliction, if they keep paying salaries like they did to AA, they will not be in business long. 1.5 mill is a little much!
