Nobody from M1 suggested the UFC should co-promote with them in US or European shows. But if they had Fedor fighting in Russia, you are damn straight the UFC should co-promote. There really should be no argument.
Do they make more money by Co-promoting? Doubtful, and that is all that really matters.
