What I don't understand is the need for him to do Sambo, when realistically speaking (if rumors prove to be true) he'll get the sum of $2 mill per fight. Despite being a big figure in Sambo, he's better off to continue work in MMA.
If a deal with UFC doesn't come to terms, which I honestly can’t see happening, there are quite a few other chains for him to join, with the possibly of the perks (him being able to fight in Russia, booking members of his camp, etc.) given to him.
For those that believe Fedor will go to the IFL, please, think again. Ideally speaking, UFC, WEC, and Bodog are the three top priorities for him, excluding his work in Russia. IMO, a deal with UFC seems inevitable, because if he wants to be known as the best fighter in the world, then by all means, UFC is the place to be. And with the kind of money they’re apparently throwing at him, his agent would be dumb to pass on that possible opportunity of sorts.
