The $30M figure is correct, but it was revenue, not profit.

I'm not saying they were 100% losing money, but EliteXC spent $32M in one year (2007) with fewer shows (eight) and far fewer fighters.

Some people think that they can convey either a philosophy on life or a complex political statement using a signature on the internet. I'm not one of them.
