Dana confirms Fedor is under contract with Zuffa

Dana does not want Fedor fighting in the UFC, but Zuffa owns his remaining fights at SF.

Basically, they can match him up with anyone they want for his next 3 fights and if he doesn't play ball he'll be sent into retirement. Not good.

“I don’t see any irony … Even though Fedor is now under contract with Zuffa, I still have a hard time imagining he’ll ever fight in the UFC. We’ll see, but that’s my bet right now. There are few fights, though, that can’t be made now. And that’s the good thing. You know me … I’m as big a fan of this as anybody and I love making the fights that everyone wants to see. At the end of the day, it’s all about making great fights and the fights the people want to see. That’s what we’re doing.”

So I guess that's the way Fedor is going to retire. Great...

Sucks for Fedor but I really love the fact that Zuffa can bully M1 now, finally... That's what you get for not playing ball

Maybe Zuffa will do what SF have failed miserably to do; actually make their top contenders fight.

Haters gonna hate. Fedor has always been respectful, even to Dana while he insulted him on so many occasions. If Dana will somehow screw Fedor over, i'm gonna be mad and so most of the people who enjoy MMA.

I don't get the Fedor hate. It's M-1 and his managers that are a stain on MMA. Fedor's always respectful and is one of, if not the greatest of all time.
