For ufc's global domination plan to be successful you would think they would welcome minor league orgs world wide for a global rooster ..

The Red Devil isnt an organization, its simply the name of the Gym Fedor trains at,(I think u know that) their global expansion includes Brazil, Australia, Phillipines....not Russia....

Not sure why not Russia, but I think the market there or audience may not warrent heavy media campains for an organization(UFC) to go and try to complete against M-1 Global....

Sure Kirill sucks (probably the mullet), but there's other cool fighters they could sign. Or at least fighters with cool names like Ibragim Ibragimov.


Btw, my name is Steve Steveno.

Would you like to meet my best friend, Dave Daveo?


lmfao wtf is with russian names

Ive watched some of the M-1 events and wasnt particularly impressed with the fighters from the red devil fight team. They werent terrible, but not exactly ready to be fighting in the UFC or even Strikeforce for that matter. Skill might have something to do with it.

I don't think it was "Sign Fedor, and sign a couple of other 'Red Devil' fighters if they are good enough." I think it was probably a demand that some of those fighters would need to stay in the UFC for Fedor to stay. But we will never know the true demands on either side.

I'm pretty sure Roman Zenstov is like the only Red Devil fighter worth watching. And he's not even that great, but he's decent. Still got that M-1 barcode though.

Fedor Emelianenko
Gegard Mousasi
Aleks Emelianenko
Amar Suloev(think he is retired)
Roman Zentsov(think he is retired too)
Alexey Oleinik

I think they would be great in the UFC. I think only Fedor and Gegard would make waves in the UFC but Amar, Aleks and Roman would smash some guys and always are exciting.

Suloev went 0-2 in the UFC. I think Aleks would actually fight in the UFC if he could get his visa, i remember seeing in interview somewhere in which he encouraged Fedor to sign with the UFC. Could have been fake. Good ole Roman is 1-3 in his last four. I dont know much about Oleinik.

Suloev was beating Baroni until he was caught and almost beat Liddell.

Suloev wouldn't become champion but is one of the most entertaining guys around. I want to watch entertaining fights as a fan.

Roman Zentsov is too.

Oleninik wouldn't become champion either but I think would beat some of the lower tier UFC heavyweights.
