    Let's hope that's what it is. I haven't seen any threads on sherdog or anywhere that people have claimed that Fedor is signed. Usually if a deal is done something slips out about it.

    If it happens, let's hope that the London fans give him a warm reception and recognize him unlike the Vegas fans who would wonder who the "tubby nobody" was until they saw the most brutal GnP ever.

    Don't forget about his crafty submissions as well. Fedor with elbows is a scary idea.

    Ehh, to me, Affliction is a lot like TapOut-horribly overpriced and trendy. I will not pay $50+ for a freakin T-shirt, unless it is signed by Wand, Fedor, Randy, or CC.

    From all that i have heard on both sides latley (mtg team interview after their meeting last week and dana interview), this deal is FAR from being done.

    Seems there is allot of things that are personally important to Fedor, that have to do with his nationality that the UFC is not budging on. Money is not the issue here, its mainly combat shooto outside the us/champion fight clauss.

    I am really starting to think it wont happen till next hear.

    Combat Sambo, not shooto. Fedor also wants the contract to not be an exclusive deal so he can fight in Russia.

    interesting to see what happens. They probably could do the deal as they know Fedor will bring an even larger crowd to the UFC but what will the other fighters in the UFC have to say about it. I can see why they wouldnt want him to get injured or something outside but hey a Fedor card is a big $$$

    If they want the best, then they have to compromise. Fedor has nothing to prove anymore; at this point, he is just adding names to his list.

    There are rumors that Fedor signed a 4 fight deal for the UFC:

    "It's true, Fedor has signed a UFC contract. He will be making 1.8 million per fight and is locked in for 4 fights at this point. He is being allowed to compete in sambo competitions, but the Russian co-promotion with UFC is not happening. Fedor's management was upset about that, but Fedor himself insisted on the contract anyway because he wanted to fight where they had the biggest concentration of the best of MMA HW's."

    Note: this is only a rumor (and from Sherdog)

    Don't get me started on Tapout. I know that they have good intentions and that they give back to the sport, but they are EXTREMELY annoying.

    she might have been the best announcer. I am no pride nuthugger btw. I always felt that pride had great fighters but not far superior to the UFC in any way (weight class dependant of course)

    I would rather hit my nuts with a hammer on the sidwalk than ever hear that shrieking pride ***** ever again.

    Buffer sucks too, but at least I dont want to poke out my ear drums with a screw driver when I hear him though.

    For the longest time, I didnt understand her unless I already knew who the fighter was as well as thought she was a he. lol

    Buffer does a good job considering how many foreign names he deals with. Nevermind he adds a much more professional look to the growing sport that is constantly under criticism/gross "cave man" sterotype.

    And there weren't any foreign names in PRIDE.

    Buffer messed up Nog's name by pronouncing Rodrigo instead of Hodrigo.

    Back to Fedor. I will go out on a limb and predict Fedor is signed with the UFC. As soon as I heard his management say talks went well and that he signed with Affliction I thought this. But the evidence keeps piling up.

    -Fedor's management said talks went well.
    -Dana said talks didnt go well and called Fedors guys crazy.
    Negotiations would have to have gone terrible for Dana to call them crazy in an interview, given he has said he doesnt like to talk about ongoing contract negotiations.
    -Fedor signed with Affliction and will reportedly be at UFC 75.
    -UFC Countdown showed clips of him and Dana mentioned him by name.

    I cant believe Fedor would be at UFC 75 if there wasnt a deal, or some type of contingent deal in place. Granted the whole Wandy thing fell through, but Dana is in control now and isnt dealing with another organizations signed fighter.

    I will say right now Fedor will be announced as a UFC fighter on Sat, but I am not holding my breath. Nothing will surprise me.
