The UFC co-promoted with Pride, why can't Dana extend 1 fight co-promoting with M-1?

Brock vs Emelianenko will draw the largest Pay Per View buys in MMA history. So even if the profits are split 50-50, both parties will still be the winner. 50% of Fedor vs Lesnar may be the 100% profit made from UFC 100 or more. You can sell this pay per view to almost any country that knows MMA. This include huge profits from Japan, Korea, Russia and other European countries where Fedor is well known.

If M-1 can show Dana the $$$$ why they should co-promote, Dana will agree. He does not mind Brock losing to Fedor, he knows that already. All that matters most for Dana is profitability. He does not even care losing Dan Henderson.

No one gives a shit about M-1. The UFC built there own name without anyones help, why does M-1 deserve a piece of there success? I actually dont think that Fedor/Lesnar would be the greatest selling pay per view of all time, even after this last Strikeforce event, Fedor is far from the biggest name in mma. Copromotion hasnt created any lasting success for any mma organization so far, if it was good for business, the UFC would do it, trust me. The UFC is far and away the most successful mma organization in the world, they dont need Fedor or M-1 to continue that success. M-1 was trying to sponge off of the UFC's success to take the easy road to building there own name.

Actually the only way Dana would OK a one time fight would be if he was sure Brock would beat Fedor, and Dana's too smart to count on that.

Having a one fight contract in which Fedor beats the UFC champ would not be beneficial to the UFC. It would completely delegitimize the UFC's HW division. That's why Dana wants a multi fight contract and in every other case forces champions to remain under contract until they lose. He doesn't want a reigning champion jumping ship to another organization.

I think it's funny with all this speculation about how Lesnar would tool Fedor on the ground. I don't see that happening. Brock is a good wrestler, has freakish size, and strength to back it up. Let's not forget that Fedor is hands down a much better stand up fighter. When he fought Randy he was getting beat on his feet til that one big punch landed...besides that I felt Randy was winning the standup battle soundly.

Look at the fact that Fedor is leaps ahead standing and then count in the fact that this man is the most dominant Sambo fighter that has ever walked the face of the earth...

Next you'll be telling me Overeem is, too. Like I was born on the turnip truck yesterday. Check your facts, son. Rutten is as Irish as a potato.
