UFC President Dana White is making a bold prediction in regards to the future of the Affliction MMA promotion.

"After tonight those guys are going out of business and all [their fighters] will be over here," White said Saturday at the UFC Fight Night: Silva vs. Irvin post-fight press conference.

Affliction invested heavily in its inaugural "Affliction: Banned" event Saturday to put together arguably the greatest heavyweight card in MMA history.

While the attendance numbers are a success with 13,989 fans packing Anaheim's Honda Center, it is not yet known how well the event fared in ticket sales and pay-per-view buys.

"Cause they spent a lot of money tonight," White explained. "And I know more about this business than they do. If you spend a lot of money and you don't get that money back, you usually go out of business.

"Talk to the IFL... They know all about it."http://www.mmafighting.com/news/2008...o-out-business
Hehe, Dana Dana. They did spend a lot of money though.

Total payouts for the event totaled just over $3.3m. This does not include any special bonuses that may have been awarded.

Also from MMAJunkie.com: http://mmajunkie.com/news/4859/affli...rolls-tops.mma

This past Saturday's "Affliction: Banned" event drew a total attendance of 14,832 -- a small increase from the night's announced attendance of 13,988 -- for a live gate of $2,085,510.
...

Of the 14,832 total tickets, 11,242 were sold, and 3,590 were complimentary and given away."

EDIT: And for comparison sake UFC 84(which was believed to be the highest promotion before this) came in at $1,098,000.

Let's hope the misprint isn't on Fedor's check, or there will be blood.

He may have gotten bonuses or PPV points, too, I suppose.

I'm betting he got a cut of the PPV buys and ticket sales.

Tim's payout is ridiculous.

So is Arlovski's.
