Okay, heres the deal, you're starting a new MMA promotion and you have the first pick in the draft with UFC and PRIDE. Everybody is up for grabs, who do you take with the first pick to "carry the ball" so to speak with your company?
Fedor... so we can watch him chase japanese men around a ring and untie their shoes!!!! Also because he could be arguably the best HW champ EVER! He is marketable in a worldy sense and you could always "take the show on the road"
Fedor cant speak English. Starting an organization with a fighter who cant speak english would not be a good move. Look at the ufc, they had Franklin as MW champ and was perfect for that role, very marketable. Now they got Anderson, who cant speak english and they cant do jack with him promotion wise.
