People are talking about M-1 as if they amount to nothing more than agents for Fedor and Mousasi. They run popular events around the world featuring a fair pool of fighters. What bearing do Fedor or Mousasi, who fight in Strikeforce ( aside from the occasional exhibition ) have on events like the M-1 challenge?
Granted, they are not the behemoth that the UFC has become, but outside of the US they are no joke.
The idea they have invested everything in Fedor and Mousasi is nonsense. They pretty much have first dibs on a large global area and will continue being M-1 long after Fedor and Mousasi have hung up there gloves.
