What so ridiculous about it?

Fedor and M1 asked for big money and they got it. Its M1 and Fedor's job to get as much money for themselves. Affliction and Strikeforce agreed to it. The only reason why there was hickups was because both Affliction and Strikeforce didnt keep to their end of the agreement.

OneFC is going very well, both Dream and OneFC is doing far better than broke as Strikeforce.

Fedor and M1 was also able to work with Pride.

So really, WHO HAS THE UFC BEEN ABLE TO WORK WITH? NO ONE, ZILCH, NADA. It seems like its the UFC thats hard to deal with.

What is smart about asking for big money and running something into the ground that they were co-promoters for.

You might not be aware of this but the UFC doesn't need to work with anybody unlike M1 who tries to piggyback any org they can.

Its Afflictions business to keep its company alive, not M-1. M-1's main aim to to be profitable and to keep itself alive.

You wont be a good businessman would you? If someone offered you $1 million I doubt anyone in their right mind would hand back $500,000.

Zuffa was the one that ran both Affliction and Strikeforce to the ground, to pick on its carcass like hyenas. Zuffa and its mafia sisters has a bad habit of doing this simply to get rid of another competition.

And thats why they are going down and its why UFC will never be as competitive and as good as Pride. Pride welcomed champions from many different orgs and MMA at that time was healthier than it is now.

They were co-promoters, to suggest they would just go after the money for Fedor explains why the UFC wouldn't entertain the thought of M1 co-promoting.

Promoters are supposed to run profitable shows. They clearly weren't involved in that.
