The balance sheet for this show was a complete disaster. They also had at least 5 figures in additional "undisclosed" purses.

Buying your timeslot is just like being a late night infomercial, no? Just like Strikeforce was doing back in the day on NBC?Looks like decent payouts for the most part. Having Arlovski headline an event for 60k seems like a rather good deal. Nice to see Rumble get a good check as well. The more options for fighters the better.

If they are already paying Anthony Johnson and AA that much money, are they going to have enough to sign a legit big name free agent?   By legit, I mean a legit free agent belt contender, like Eddie Alvarez. No disrespect meant to AJ or AA or anyone else.

Gregor Gracie clearly got paid based on his last name and not based on his MMA credentials.

This!Ray Sefo is a class act. True warrior and gentleman.Also it seems Zuffa is supporting WSOF by letting their guys work for them like Todd Harris?

I didn't see it advertised very much I hope they get more publicity for next event.

Depends on how much they paid.  Typically when you pay to be on a channel you get all the ad revenue , which is why we kept seeing the same MMA and energy drink commercials over and over.  A new promotion just does not have the sales staff or product to get big advertisers.  However if done right the ad revenue and cost to be on a cable station could make it a wash.
