Question Why does UFC not want to sign 'Red Devil' fighters?

I read an old interview where one of Fedor's managers said UFC only wanted Fedor and no other Red Devil fighter. Why? Red Devil is a pretty good team from what I hear. Arent they like, the best MMA fight team in Russia? Even if Dana cant get Fedor, he should grab some other Red Devils if he can.

As we can tell by Fedor and the UFC, the management doesn't met eye to eye.

I am not sure why they wouldn't though. There are a few guys I would sign if I was Dana White.

Are all the Red Devil guys run under the same manager that Fedor is under? If not, UFC should be all over that. I'd like to see more Sambo in UFC.

Plus, why when negotiating for Fedor did UFC not want to sign Red Devil fighter with him? Maybe that would have made a difference.

Who else does the UFC work like this with? Not ATT, or AKA, or any other team. Sorry but it is not how UFC does business.

Because they suck, look Baby Fedor was supposed to be this monster what did he turn out to be? He was exactly like Fedor if Fedor fought like you would expect him to based on his looks.
