    I don't think that really changes his point too much.

    Those are some nice payouts. Fedor probably got a piece of the PPV and the gate.

    You're right, that was for the interim belt

    This is pretty good imo. I remember Lesnars debut was in front of a packed house, but nearly all the tickets had to be given away. Not sure if we can expect an accurate PPV estimate, but this is a good sign

    The California State Athletic Commission on Monday released the attendance and gate receipts for the debut mixed martial arts event of Afflcition, dubbed “Banned.” The event took place on Saturday, July 19, 2008 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.

    According to the CSAC, Banned had a paid attendance of 11,242; complimentary attendance of 3,590; and was left with 740 deadwood or unsold tickets. The total attendance of the event was 14,832.

    Gross receipts for paid attendance was $2,085,510 compared to a total fighter payroll of $3,321,000. The total value of the complimentary tickets was $600,500. The total value of unsold tickets was $157,400.

    Affliction “Banned” Paid Attendance/Gross Receipts*:
    $2,085,510

    Affliction “Banned” Fighter Payroll*:
    $3,321,000

    CL, I agree, Affliction still has a long way to go, but if they can continue to produce a competitive product it will be good for the sport.

    I was told that Fedor made $2M on this fight. There is no way Sylvia got more than Fedor and I know for fact that Tim got $800K.

    That sounds about right, based on what the other guys made. That's a crapload of money.
