    the wwe option killed me.

    I dunno, doesn't he still have one more fight left with m1 or some shit? If so, looks like negotiations will have to wait for a little while.

    My guess in the end is that Fedor goes everywhere but the UFC.

    i can't see him joining anyone but UFC. UFC wants him, and if they're giving brock a million a fight, they can give fedor some good money.

    If you voted UFC, you're a moron. Period.

    Fedor is officially signed to the M-1 Global Promotions. Vadim Finkelstein(M-1 owner and Fedor's manager) will only allow Fedor to sign if co-promotion and signing of other M-1 fighters is agreed upon. The UFC WILL NOT co-promote. Lorenzo Fertita said he would allow Fedor to compete in Combat SAMBO, so that's not the dealbreaker.

    Even his brother Aleksander has talked about this.

    Keep in mind that japan is planning on a heavyweight tourney pretty soon. Names mentioned include antonio silva, overeem, and pretty much every big hw name not in the ufc. so unfortunately, ufc isn't the only place where fedor could find competition.

    the good thing is dream contracts dont seem to mean anything, so it could always allow the possibility for further talks with fedor.

    throw enough money at it and it'll work. either that or he'll fire vadim because he'd be an absolute moron to turn down the offer you know UFC will give him. he'd earn more money in 3 fights with the UFC than any cross-promotion and fight card will earn him with any other company.

    he'll go UFC. it's just good business.

    Fedor in UFC is unlikely, but not impossible.

    I think at the end of the day, Fedor wants to fight UFC fighters and it's just a matter if they can reach a deal that's mutually beneficial without being too compromising for either side's wants. UFC/M1 partnership is ridiculous, but a deal where m1 could be like a UFC bush league wouldn't be so bad. M1's not exactly a threat to UFC, so hopefully the brass can see that compromise a tad if that's what it takes.

    The UFC's last offer to Fedor was the most financially lucrative and he turned it down. Money isn't everything to everyone, just prostitutes.

    More evidence that I'm right: M-1: No Fedor in UFC Without Co-Promoting

    well then, fedor is gonna lose based on vadim's idiocy. the only way ufc would co-promote is letting fedor wear m-1 merchandise i'm sure.

    fedor needs to drop them fast. he'll never face the best of the best for the rest of his life if he doesn't.
