Dana's right, but Fedor's not the kind of guy that's difficult to hype. He already has a belt. He's dominated a world that guys like CroCop, Nogueira, Rampage, Shogun, Wanderlei and Anderson Silva, among others, have been a part of for a long time.
While Dana would have to build him up, it's not exactly a promo that would be challenging to put together. You could sit down with anyone in the UFC and ask them what they think about Fedor, everyone respects him, everyone knows who he is, and that kind of respect travels fast.
Plus, now that the UFC owns PRIDE's highlight footage, they can show the tape of Fedor dominating everyone from CroCop to Zuluzinho.
If Dana is using the mainstream's ignorance as an excuse not to sign him, or to let him slip through his fingers, he's a f*cking idiot. Fedor coming to the UFC would be the biggest event in the history of the sport so far.
