This is Afflcitions pay out for DOR, now do any of you ever ask yourself why Afflciton would pay so much more than the UFC? I mean they are a buisiness and that wouldn't make any sense to pay that much more than any of your competition would it? The truth is they were an upstart start MMA company so taking a PPV and gate % doesn't really appeal, its to much of a gamble if the show bombs, instead Affliction was forced to offer guaranteed money something the UFC doesn't do. Since only the guaranteed money needs to be revealed to the athletic commision and thus becomes public record that is the only money we know about, truth is there is a large % of the fighters pay day that we never know about 100% and all these assumptions are based on pure speculation coming from a mere % of reality.
