"Rumor" what the UFC offered Fedor.

Quote:
- The UFC offered Fedor a 6 fight, 30 million dollar contract. That's 5 mil a fight

- The UFC offered Fedor an immediate title shot

- Lesnar/Fedor would be the biggest PPV in MMA history (we assume), and the UFC offered M-1 Global a cut of the PPV on top of Fedor's purse.

- Fedor was free to wear as many M-1 logoed items as he wished.

- The UFC also relented on allowing Fedor to compete in combat sambo.

Apparently, for good or bad, M-1 refuses to sign a deal unless the UFC agrees to co-promote.

If this has already been posted then im sorry. I just got home from work and this shocked me so much that i just had to post it. If Fedor does not wanna come to the UFC with these conditions then honestly i dont even care to see him in the UFC anymore.

Are they posturing and gonna back down, or is the co-promotion thing really worth more than 5 million a fight? When the hell do we find out and put the thing to rest is what I wanna know.

The Ufc is NOT going to Co-Promote with anyone, Fedor or any fighter for that matter just isn't worth it.

Im honestly starting to believe the rumor that Fedors manager is hooked up with the Russian Mob. Why else would Fedor not sign this deal unless he is scared to get popd. Sopranos Style........
Kind of a joke but really i dont know whats going through Fedors head.

Ok I concede. If that deal is true.. Then Fedor. Buddy. Commmmeeee oonnnnn!

That should cancel out the co promotion. But the UFC paying 5mil? Seems a bit exageratted to me. considering the usual amount is lucky to be 10% of that for top tier.

Read the same thing. Weird that Carmichael Dave refused to reveal who told him about the terms of the contract- or even comment on it. Even if he's telling the truth, this is Weekly World News level journalism. Readers deserve to know who this reporter is quoting, or at least a vague idea of who the source is.

As of now I have no idea why I should buy his story.

If those are the conditions and he doesn't sign... Well then there must be something seriously up with his management.

That deal is unheard of, if his management say no he should dump them, move his family to america for couple of years then retire a very very very rich man.

I would absolutely not buy into this article. There is no way that was the offer and there's no one else credible reporting this.
