Okay, in combat sambo you might get hit in the head, but with Fedor it's not very likely. The only time I've seen him get hit in sambo, it was by his "kid" brother Aleksander.

3. Fedor's managers want to bring in more Red Devil fighters into the UFC. I think that's a stupid demand, although I wouldn't mind seeing Roman Zentsov in the UFC. He could be a monster with elbows.

It would a bloody shame if Fedor is not coming to the UFC. A very big missed oppurtunity if this does not happen and I hope very much they can renegotiate.
4.) he wants to fight in other organizations so he can continuously fight the best and if the best is in another organization he want free reign to fight there

Just thought I would the last one to your list

they definitley should let him do wat he feels at the end of the day even if its a one fight only deal (against coture) the ratings would be through the roof! not to mention we could finally see who the best fighter really is. man im getting a hard on just thinking bout it!

Dana just needs to wait and get him for cheap a year from now.
There's a tiny problem with your comparison. I'd look at it this way instead: Fedor is applying to the USFL (the secondary league) now because his league, the NFL got bought by the USFL. I don't think they'd laugh at him if he was the best quarterback in the NFL. They'd suck his ****. Sure, you're welcome and bring a couple of friends! The contracts these day in football and baseball are absolutely ridiculous ! MMA contracts is nowhere near that ridiculous, (yet).

5. Fedor's managment wants the rights to promote UFC events in Russia as well. This IMO is a rediculous demand. The UFC doesn't really have an interest in holding events in Russia. If they did I'm pretty sure they wouldn't need Fedor's managers to promote it. Why would Zuffa give up that kind of control?

As much as I'd love to see Fedor in the UFC I don't think they should accept his demands. Look at the big picture. Most of the other top HW's in the world are in the UFC.If Fedor doesn't fight those top guys within the next year he'll probably lose his #1 status. Especially if Randy can beat Big Nog and others.

If he wants to stay #1 he'll have to cave and come over. The longer he waits, the less he's going to get.

Oh I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to make you write something stupid. UFC has had some terrific fighters for sure, but fact remains that Pride had the best. Or would you like to make another statement Sir?

I think they should renegociate in after the new year.

i don't see why it's a FACT. where's the proof that Pride had the best. i constantly see Pride fans make that statement but offer no proof. if that's your opinion, that's cool but when you present it as a fact and offer nothing to back it up, makes you look like an idiot.
