Affliction Counter-Suit Calls M-1 Global a Sham

What a mess. Dana White was the smart one.

Affliction Entertainment filed a countersuit against M-1 Global, the management and promotional group that reps Fedor Emelianenko, in Los Angeles federal court on Thursday, asking for declaratory relief on the validity of a "Consultation Agreement" signed into by the two parties in April 2008 -- allegedly under false pretenses. Affliction is also asking the court to rule that M-1 Global return $2.4 million in consulting fees it was paid in conjunction with two Affliction MMA events the two groups co-promoted in July 2008 and January 2009.

In the filings obtained by, Affliction claims it, under M-1 Global's directive, entered into two separate agreements with Emelianenko and the Holland-based organization to procure the services of the world's No. 1 heavyweight as a headliner for three events.

According to Affliction, the California-based promotion inked a "Fight Agreement" that tendered $300,000 to Emelianenko per bout he participated in, while Affliction was directed to pay the remaining $1.2 million of Emelianenko's $1.5 million asking purse per bout directly to M-1 Global under the auspice of a "Consultation Agreement."
More here. Moderately WS. One F-bomb.

Many have said not so nice things about M-1 and the people that run it...I'm curious what will come to light during the court case.

The more I read about Fedor's management, the more the whole thing reminds me of Tyson and Don King...
