Meeting with Fedor Emelianenko “Not Good”

Despite conflicting reports, a meeting the UFC had Thursday with Fedor Emelianenko’s camp was “not good” according to a source within the organization that spoke to UFCjunkie.com (UFC news, MMA news, UFC rumors, UFC gossip, fighter interviews and event previews and recaps - UFCjunkie.com) contributor Sam Caplan.
Caplan posted the report on his personal blog, fiveouncesofpain.

A variety of reports today stated the meeting was productive — and even that a tentative deal worth about $2 million per fight had been reached. However, Caplan reports that his source gave no indication that a deal was imminent.

Emelianenko, the PRIDE heavyweight champion and top-ranked Russian fighter, has been in negotiations with the UFC for months.

During Thursday’s UFC 75 media conference call, UFC President Dana White said that if Emelianenko signs with the organization, he could be next in line for a title shot with current champ Randy Couture. White, though, gave no indication that a deal was close, and even joked that the conference call members should “put in a good word” for him.

Emelianenko would bring an unparalleled resume to the UFC. With a near-perfect 26-1 record, he suffered his lone loss in a 2000 RINGS event against Tsuyoshi Kohsaka. The bout was stopped just 17 seconds in because of a cut caused by a glancing elbow from Kohsaka (Emelianenko later avenged the loss in a 2005 PRIDE Bushido event).

Since the loss, it’s been pure domination of some of the sport’s top heavyweight fighters, including a 2005 unanimous-decision win over current UFC fighter Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic.
