Fedor is a draw. If it means putting a crappy logo in the corner of the octogon to get a fight who cares. You want the best Dana? Loosen up.

He treats fighters like he owns them and everyone associated. Unfortunately for him with great fighters come great negotiations.
I thought $5 million per fight, for 6 fights + allowing him to do Sambo + allowing him to wear M1 clothing to the octagon would be loose enough lol.

I think people need to realize these are the same crazy F****ing Russians who wanted a stadium remember, now realize thed fact that a stadium would have cost over 100 million to build and try and wrap your head around the concept. M-1 are greedy vultures but what I wonder is how many fights till Fedor is free of them?

i have to say the more i hear about strikeforce the more i like them. They wouldnt sell out brett rodgers for 1 fight with fedor with no chance of a rematch. If fedor has any common sense he'd ditch m1 and sign up with these guys. Scott coker has sound business model and wont risk it for m1 fedor or anyone else, Kudos to strikeforce. Right now fedor is unuseable in any org because of this crap

agree! This is getting tiresome, what else does finklestein want? For the strikeforce ceo to pleasure him once a month?

I can imagine him trying to get a terrorist to release some hostages from a bank.

I don't think his tactics are working with Fedors management. If he wants fedor, how about offereing a real deal. Just this once, come on Dana. You can do it. I think Fedor has earnt a serious offer.
I think it's cheeky of Fedor and Co. to demand special treatment. He should come to the UFC for the fans alone, they're what pays his wages.
