The Affliction M-1 Global: Day of Reckoning disclosed fighter salaries totaled in excess of three million dollars. This is just the disclosed base pay; there are sponsorships and most likely other bonuses (especially for Fedor) that are not included in these numbers. Andrei Arlovski may not have won inside the ring against Fedor, but he was the big winner of the night when it came to money, taking home a whopping 1.5 million dollars.
