Money may be Finkelstein's/M-1's primary objective, but I don't have the impression that it's also Emelianenko's. He's made enough money to make a decent living in his small Russian town for the rest of his life. You don't see him driving expensive cars, showing expensive jewelry, a big mansion with lots of expensive high tech. He just doesn't seem to be that kind of guy. For some people, money is not all
