Its a shame, but atleast now we'll get to see if fedor can handle the UFC and the diverse heavyweight division, lol. But seriously there will be a few interesting matchups.

Noted MMA Insider, Josh Gross of SI.com, spoke recently with Emelianenko's M-1 Global associate Apy Echteld who flatly denied that a deal was imminent.
"I can give you a guarantee it's not accurate," Apy Echteld of M-1 Global told SI.com.
Sources at both the LA Times and FiveKnuckles.com have confirmed that negotiations have indeed taken place between the two sides, a fact echoed by Echteld himself, but it's the nature of these negotiations which appear to be at odds.
Emelianenko is set to hold a press conference tomorrow to elaborate further on his future plans and where he'll end up in the wake of Afflictions demise. The press conference will hopefully shed light on the conflicting reports.

these people negotiate like little ****in kids, so much money to be made but both sides are too dumb to see it

I stand by the position that Fedor will never sign with the UFC; he recently announced that he is the main draw of the EA MMA game and Dana has said on record that no one in that game will fight in the UFC. There have been rumors for years about Fedor coming over to fight in the UFC, but I really don't see it happening because of Vadim.

The deal that he apparently left on the table is almost unfathomable.

Isn't the Russian owner of M-1 Fedor's manager? So why wouldn't Fedor just go to M-1 and start doing fights?

A six-fight $30 million dollar contract, making him, by far, the highest paid MMA fighter in history
An immediate title shot against Brock Lesnar
A cut of the Lesnar/Emelianenko PPV on top of the already exorbitant purse
Authorization to wear as many M-1 Global logo's as Fedor wished
Authorization for Fedor to compete in Combat Sambo tournaments
Watch after all that he loses to Brock. hahaha

Somethings not right. I'm gonna guess that there are some "theatrics" going on. I doubt they would walk away from that offer. There's NO downside to it. I would guess that them "walking away" is a ruse to add even more drama to Friday's press-conference. But then again, Finkelchtein seems SUPER-shady.

ya thats a huge deal right there. didnt fitch or something was going to do the EA game but canceled and thats why dana screws with him now?
its going to be hard to get fedor, they dont like exclusive stuff and want to do a co promote thing. he needs to take that offer. if he goes to strikeforce then ill have to drive up to SJ and watch him!!!

If I was Fitch I would have been pissed(unless he didnt want to in the game) since he wasn't in the UFC game. I mean he is supposed to be pretty high up their as far as welterweights in the rankings and they have some lesser guys on the game instead. Less publicity for him.
08-03-2009, 04:00 AM
its because they were mad at him. i forget why. he was acually released from the UFC one day and got hired back a day later lol.
08-03-2009, 04:43 AM
Lol is that why at UFC 100 he had his fight messed with? Like he was supposed to be the 2nd fight on the main card but ended up going last. I swear NOBODY watched that fight even if the tv was still on lol.

ya that is gay because i met fitch and he is very cool.
on another note i lost respect for fedor today.

I tend to go with the Dana White is feeding us a load of ****. He is nothing but an obnoxious ahole for the most part.
08-04-2009, 03:54 AM
yeah vitor knocks out his opponents and he wants him back haha. fedor needs to burn these 3 fights quick to get out of m1

Ya it would have been nice to have people actually watch Fedor tear it up. U talk to most people and they know what UFC(in fact calling MMA UFC) is but having no idea about these other fight promotions.

I get asked "Do you do UFC, or Are you training UFC" I laugh so hard. People suck.
