How long will it be before this organization goes the way of Pride, I wonder?

I have no interest in Fedor Vs Arona, even HMC is a weak fight for Fedor.

With that said I will still be catching this event for all the other (possible) great fights.

If M-1 pulls this off right they can capitalise on a ready made fanbase and propell itself towards the top of the MMA foodchain quicker than most people would have thought possible.

Is Pride really the best model to follow? I'm not so sure...
Hopefully things work out.

I saw that SkyPerfect PPV is confirmed but I didn't see the rest, so has it been confirmed that this show will be broadcast in some form in America? I hope so, otherwise I probably won't get to see this event.

Indeed. If M-1 puts on a PPV like this, all the talk of M-1 not being able to put up a good roster for a card should stop. Looks like it's going to rock!

M1 is working with the old Pride's Staff. You just never know, they may very well be the next Pride. You got to give them a chance, and competition is always good. The UFC needs to get slapped around a bit, for their own good. Though i do think Fedor needs better management. They seem to be out for themselves, that's for sure!

Fedor's Manager Is Confident That Fedor Will Fight Again In Feburary After NYE Event - MMAFightLine.com

Vadim Finkelstein, Fedor Emelianenko's manager and M-1 executive would like to work closely with the old PRIDE staff to produce shows.

“I want to work with the old PRIDE staff in America & Russia. PRIDE’s team is the best quality in the world.”

Finklestein also said via press conference that he would like to hold two to three US shows in 2008 as well as another show in Japan next August.

Finklestein feels fairly certain that Fedor will fight again in February after the upcoming Japanese event on New Year's Eve. This would represent a rare, but welcome departure from what has become Emelianenko's sporadically active fight routine.

Big thanks to Zach Arnold at Fight Opinion for the translation and dissemination.
