M-1 global and blah blah blah present, Co-promotion limits where and when Fedor and obviously Mousasi can compete so don't act like the UFC is the devil, you do realize if Fedor blew his knee out and had to get surgery Mousasi could be sidelined by this M-1 bullshit for a year or more?
I dont think you understand what everyone has been saying here. Gegard cant fight in Strikeforce without Fedor as per his contract. HOWEVER he is still able to fight for other tournaments and co-promote with other organisations.
This is far better than the UFC where they are only ALLOWED to fight with other UFC fighters.
It was widely reported as by far the largest contract in UFC history, hmm pretty sure that would top anybody elses contract anywhere, do you realize the kind of money Chuck Liddell was bringing in?
Again the sum has been proven false. Fedor and his management has already debunked this rediculous rumour, there is even a video interview of this.
This is a misconception because the UFC has a champions clause, pretty simple solution, you can fight for the UFC without fighting for the title, people refuse fights all the time, may hurt your bargaining power for your net contract but they don't make your fight for the title.
Now this is just rediculous. Imagine Fedor beating everyone in the division, yet still not a legitimate belt champion? What sort of paper belt do the UFC have? No wonder Henderson left.
[quote]Says who? Seeing as Fedor never even met with the UFC (only M-1 did) I find anything he has to say on the topic useless information seeing as M-1 blatantly lied to Mousasi about a low ball UFC offer (Joe Silva said no contract was ever
offered to Mousasi due to his involvement with the EA MMA game).[quote]
Fedor hired a management team to do these sort of things, why should Fedor go to America? Why shouldnt Dana go to Russia for once?
So basically since its already been exposed that M-1 blatably lies to the fighters they represent what makes you so sure Fedor even knows what the offer actually was?
Again see the Dan Henderson issue and how Dana/UFC lied to him about a title shot. Dana and the UFC are not very honest and frankly I find Fedor/M1 far more honest.
guys in a UFC PPV get a cut of the buys this isn't something that any agent worth his salt is gonna accept from an upstart MMA company so instead of a PPV% it made more sense to demand a set rate that much higher instead
UFC is really only relevant in America, in Russia its close to non existant. Other fighters are desperate and not in the same situation as Fedor. Fedor owns 20% of M1 and has the best record as well as being the most respected fighter in MMA (apart from noobs).
