    Understanding Fedor's decision to sign with M1


    This is a pretty good article about who Fedor is and where he comes from. On the last page, he really explains just how difficult the UFC was. They basically were asking him to sign his ENTIRE life to them and it was non-negotiable.

    "I never met Dana White, never spoke to him on the phone, never exchanged e-mails," Fedor said. "However, I did read a lot on the Internet about what he said in regard to me and Vadim []. I also read e-mails that he sent to Vadim; all of his correspondence was very upsetting. The contract that we were presented with by the UFC was simply impossible, couldn't be signed -- I couldn't leave. If I won, I had to fight eight times in two years. If I lost one fight, then the UFC had the right to rip up the contract. At the conclusion of the contract, if I am undefeated, then it automatically extends for an as yet unspecified period of time, though for the same compensation.



    Wow, you actually believe that sh1t? Fedor is dead, quit bringing him up.

    Zuffa does have the right to terminate contracts for a number of reasons, including losing.

    It seems like Fedor didnt like someone beign teh boss, so he signed elsewhere, where the odds are he will not fight another top HW unless a miracle happens. It is sad, but at teh end of the day he is the best HW, but can no longer prove it

    He is training for his next fight, but he doesn't know who his opponent will be. I hope Mirko returns to his dominance, but it seems like he just doesn't want it anymore.
