Named Fedor Emelianenko's fee for the farewell fight

The California State Athletic Commission has released the payroll of the Bellator 290 tournament, according to which the legendary Russian heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko received $ 100,000 for the title fight against Ryan Bader, which was the last in his professional career.

The American, who defeated The Last Emperor by TKO in the middle of the first round, replenished his bank account with $150,000.

Obviously, these figures do not reflect the total earnings of fighters, which can be many times higher than the base fee due to income from sponsors and other payments.

The participant of the second most important event of the event, Anatoly Tokov, who lost by unanimous decision to the current Bellator middleweight champion, Johnny Eblin, earned $ 75,000, while the American received twice the fee.

Russian fighters Mukhamed Berkhamov, Akhmed Magomedov, Ali Isaev, Diana Avsaragova and Nikita Mikhailov, who competed on the preliminary card of the tournament, received $33,000, $28,000, $70,000, $32,000 and $32,000, respectively, with the latter two managing to double their base fees of $16. 000 through bonuses for winning.
