Fedor Emelianenko Offered Strikeforce Deal

Source: http://www.fiveknuckles.com/mma-news...-with-M-1.html

Says he gets 500 to 700k a cut of any PPV, guarenteed spot on CBS show and co promo on a non-exclusive contract.

Looks like it's everything he wants accept for an actual challenge. Who's he gonna fight? Brett Rodgers and then Overeem... AA again... unreal. I hope this isn't happening and M-1 is really just trying to streach Dana for all they can get.

No one really knows what Dana is like at the negotiation table. But from what we are fed online, it seems he is massively greedy and stubborn.

I can imagine him trying to get a terrorist to release some hostages from a bank.
"How about, you release all the hostages, come outside, sing our national anthem while doing naked jumping jacks, then proceed to shove this pineapple up your...."

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.

Fedor's management being Russian doesn't make them terrorists.....

WTF is a "real deal"??? Dont talk if you dont know... he is asking for co-promotion.... would ANY MAJOR SPORT allow a competitor to make $ off them when they have the market cornered for all intents and purposes?? Imagine Jordan tried to tell the NBA they had to co-promote with him, have his companies name on every event too.... wtf.... who do you think you are?? seriously. When Fedor doesnt sign, he should be taken off the top p4p list, that honor is only for ppl who fight the best.

Are you kidding me? Theyve been throwing money at him and have been willing to let him do Sambo. Even Fedor's brother has said his management is out for themselves. They said they will only sign with the UFC if they co-promote shows. No way in hell is the UFC and hopefully strikeforce gonna agree to that. Calling M-1 a promotion is an insult to these other two, I mean who the **** do they think they are trying to force a co-promotion with ONE goddamn fighter. They are trying to leech bad off Fedor and i really hope it backfires and leaves them decimated. I'd much rather see that happen then these scumbags getting their co-promotion deal.

This is why I began my post with "no one really knows what Dana is like...". We don't. Your sources are the internet, and what Dana chooses to release about his offers, and vice versa. We can sit here arguing all we want about who is trying to screw who. We don't know.

But Dana as a person (and im not condemning him for it) is a stubborn, selfish greedy person (which is perfect for a UFC pres).

Do you have any idea the PPV's they will sell for Fedor vs Les? Fedor vs Randy? Fedor vs himself? Heaps. To think that his co promoters don't deserve a piece of that pie just means Dana got to you (he is a very good manipulator). Just because they are fighting in Dana's house doesn't change the fact they should be entitled to some of the massive viewer ship their fighter is bringing in.

Welcome to negotiations.

Fedor is not the draw that you seem to think he is. The affliction results were dismal and they were against viable opponents. I'm not too sure a Fedor vs. Lesnar card would do heaps better then UFC 100

The giant contract is the compensation!!! No matter what stipulations the UFC have in their contracts that we don't know about nothing warrants what Fedor's camp is demanding. M-1 demanding co-promotion is like the CFL demanding a merger with the NFL. It doesnt make any sense and is ludacris. I get the feeling ur defending this just for the sake of defending it. That or Dana White ate ur baby...

More power to Fedor I guess. I wanted him in the UFC to see him beat Lesnar, but it's his life so whatever he chooses is fine. Can't wait til he faces guys like Overeem and Werdum

Not the same man.. Not the same.
Whatever card Fedor is thrown on, they can do a co promotion for. It isn't for every UFC ever. It is the Fedor cards.

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.
