It was never Dana vs Fedor, it was Dana vs M-1. I firmly believe M-1 is the reason alot of fans and maybe even Dana himself have animosity towards him. M-1 were under the delusion that Fedor was bigger than the sport and no athlete is ever bigger than the sport they compete in.
If Fedor and M-1 just shutup and fight there won't be any issues. But if M-1 tries bullying Strikeforce like they have tried in the past with the contract re-negotiations and threatening to not fight unless this demand is met etc. you can bet your ass Dana is going to step in. Dana isn't the tyrannical figure alot make him out to be, hell he let Wanderlei walk into the octagon with a PRIDE shirt on during a UFC PPV to promote a Chuck-Wand fight it was PRIDE that backed out of that co-promoted deal not Dana. Dana is a fair man and always has been.
