UFCThe Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is a U.S.-based mixed martial arts organization, recognized as the largest MMA promotion in the world.

UFC is currently undergoing a remarkable surge in popularity, along with greater mainstream media coverage. UFC programming can now be seen on FOX, FX, and FUEL TV in the United States, as well as in 35 other countries worldwide.
Fedor will never be in the ufc because zuffa does not own him
“Fedor’s contract is with Showtime Networks Inc and we’re excited to be working with such a premium North American outlet. The purchase of Strikeforce doesn’t affect M-1 at all. Our TV deal is with Showtime and we’re happy. It’s business as usual for M-1 Global as we close into our March 25th event.”
good we dont even want fedor after all the crap m-1 has put us through, especially after 2 straight losses. i would rather kharitonov over fedor but i cant wait till dana gets rid of both of their contracts
At this point, the interest is not what it used to be. The mystic of Fedor is gone and I really don't think the UFC/Dana care all that much about making a big fight with Fedor. However, the ratings on his last fight say otherwise and I'm sure there is a little bit of interest still.
If you had told me a year ago that I would be saying that Fedor is barely within the top 10 HW's, I'd assume I started using crack on a daily basis. However, that's where we're at right now. Instead of Fedor being at the Lesnar/Cain level (1 year ago), he's now at the Mir/Barnett/Brett Rogers level.
Hell, even Aleks would probably give Fedor a good fight now. (I'd take Fedor but he looked horrendous the last fight.)
