Dana on Finkelstein: Fedor’s Manager Must F!@#$ Himself To Sleep At Night

Damn Dana. You were so close to responding without dropping the F bomb and sounding unprofessional. Still, everything he said is probably true.

Quote:
There is a long documented history of failed negotiations between the UFC promotion and the Fedor Emelianenko camp.

Prior to his stint with the now defunct Strikeforce banner, Fedor Emelianenko was widely considered the most dominant Mixed Martial Artist in history.

With the UFC’s eyes set on Russian territory, the talks of a Russian talent influx to the promotion has quickly drawn the attention of the MMA man in Russia and Fedor Emelianenko manager, Vadim Finkelstein.

Bleacher Report has the story:

“I’m ready to talk and work.” said Vadim in a recent interview. “I’m ready to give them my champions if we can come to an agreement.”

Don’t expect an M-1 Global and UFC alliance this month.

“That’s cool of him. So now Fedor’s retired, M-1 Global didn’t work and now he’s open to working with us? He’s a smart dude,” said White. “Vadim blew it in every way possible that you could blow it. We went there, we made Fedor an incredible offer and M-1 was a part of that whole thing cause I don’t know how that whole relationship works, but if he would have come in and he would have fought—he would have made a lot of money.”

“That dude must f—-ing go to bed every night and lay down and just motherf— himself until he falls asleep.” said White of Finkelstein. “Seriously. he must. I don’t even know how it’s possible how he couldn’t.”

Don't question Uncle Dana

When Fedor was relevant I would have liked to see him come to the cage and get his ass kicked like Cro-cop and the others did; but at this late date I just want him and his manager to go away and stop pretending they matter. Their ship has sailed.

I don't think Fedor is pretending to be relevant considering he retired a year ago. I do agree his manager needs to go away. No way Dana will do business with him.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Didn't Fedor and Mousasi have the same manager at one point?

Mousasi was signed under M-1. Not sure if he was his manager or but Finklefck certainly repped him.

Not really sure why people see Fedor so negatively. His management was awful, but Fedor was a quiet, humble, pudgy man who always showed up to fight his ass off, win or lose.

I bet we could get Randy out of retirement for this fight that should have happened years ago when both were at the top of their games. It would still be a great fight and the winner get's Segal.
