What if Mirko, Shogun, and Heath Herring got special benefits in thier contract since they were the "Best" fighters in Pride. Mirko is 1-2, Shogun just got demolished in his UFC debut and Herring got embarrassed by O'brien. So my point is what if those fighters had special treatment in thier contracts? Then they loose and the other UFC fighters who win will want that special treatment because they will say they don't loose.... etc.etc.etc. It could go onto many things.

After this Sambo Tournament in November I'm sure Fedor will sign with the UFC. If not, then his loss. You can't baby fighters, it's a business. Something most of you people say Dana is not good at all, but then put out the wildest business assumptions that should be done.
I agree 100%. Seems like Fedor wants special treatment and Dana is showing the current UFC Fighters respect by not giving in. If he does it for him it wouldn't be fair to the rest of the UFC Fighters.

Here's something else that's interesting:
Quote:
1. Cultural differences: it often seems that many Russian businessmen do not view the 'contract' in quite the same way as a foreign businessmen might. In some cases, a contract seems to serve more as a "statement of mutual intentions" which need not be implemented if some initial assumptions turn out not to have been valid after all, or if the situation changes. In addition, it is often the case that a contract is less important than the "relationship"; these ways of doing business will be quite familiar to people doing business in Asia or in some other parts of the world. Given that the Russian legal system still has relatively little experience as a mechanism for enforcing commercial agreements, this is perhaps not such an unreasonable point of view.

did it also include how Indians give things and take them back? lol...
Since most Native American tribes didn't have a cultural concept of personal ownership, it wasn't unusual for them to do exactly that, especially with land. Again, it's only ridiculous if it's untrue.

In Fedor we trust.
Now that's ridiculous.
