Damn. I gotta wait til this is confirmed but... Goddamn seems like the UFC is practically getting on their knees for fedor. I hope he signs, otherwise his management are bastards.

i dont think the 5 mill a fight is true. it will be a lot but not that much. and i do not know what is keeping him out of the ufc. if he does not want to fight the best out there his rank will go down. and he won't be worth as much. if he is being blackmailed it seems like a really big risk to threaten someone as well known as pound for pound top fighter. Why would the mob want him out of the ufc? if they were using his name or something then wouldn't they get more money there? i dont know. i am not that good at knowing what the mob wants.

Maybe Fedor knows that if he signs with the UFC it's basically game over for all the other MMA organizations. If he does sign with the UFC, 6 fights later if he's not happy and wants to leave where can he leave to? Yeah he'll be a bigger name but maybe that won't be enough to help the last few standing MMA organizations left by then. I don't know this is just a theory. Fedor knows his value and what he can do for the smaller organizations like StrikeForce who are in need of a big name imo. I thought Tito Ortiz was gonna be that big name but obviously not now.

We'll see I don't think I'm right but I could very well see Fedor moving to StrikeForce and having some of his fights aired on CBS and helping StrikeForce get big. Not big enough to compete with the UFC obviously but maybe big enough to where some fighters have another successful organization to turn to

Politicking and negotiations. That's a very reasonable offer. Really wonder how instrumental Vadim was for Fedor's career. Does Vadim need Fedor or Fedor need Vadim. Think we all know the answer.

Has anyone given any thought to the fact that it might not be about the money.He already makes a boatload of dough through the fights and sponsors,granted not that kind of money.The Russian mob is serious business,and I will certainly leave it at that.Could be his management halting at the deal,but I would assume Fedor has the final say.
I hope it is not because he fears Lesnar.I hate Lesnar with the passion,but I considered this,probably off key there.
Maybe he does not care about his pound for pound status in our eyes.He will go down as one of the best mma heavyweights regardless.The UFC heavyweight division needs all the talent it can get.

i guess it would be smart to just live off the rest of his carreer un beaten against opponents that are not the best. we all want fedor to fight in the ufc but that does not mean its the smartest thing he can do if he just wants to have an undefeated record.
