Fedor Emelianenko was not offered $30 million, six-fight UFC contract …

“I can say that the guaranteed — and the word ‘guaranteed’ is of great importance here — the guaranteed offer made by the UFC is less than what Fedor made before. The five-million (per fight) is way, way, way out of range. Half of that is even way out of range of what they offered…. And there were a number of provisions attached to that offer that made it very much less interesting. We made it clear that Fedor, now and forever is part, even part owner, of M-1 and those two cannot be separated. If the rest of M-1 is excluded from any kind of deal, it makes the deal difficult…. We had a very professional, productive and respectful meeting with the UFC. I think both parties walked away (knowing) even though a deal wasn’t made, that a very decent meeting was had.”

Interesting.

the UFC will justify it as saying that he was offered a cut of the ppv's which undoubtedly would have added up to 30 mil ...

K-1 will co-promote with M-1 and possibly Strikeforce. if the UFC won't co-promote, then Fedor will go to one of those 2.

Oh yea, no doubt, but at the end of the day, none of those Orgs are anywhere near as stacked as the UFC. I think I'm like everybody else in that we're tired of seeing Fedor fight guys that "used" to be top contenders. I'd still like to see the Josh B fight and even Fedor beat the crap out of Alistair Overeem. Other then that, I'm tired of seeing Fedor wasting away.

If Fedor isn't careful he's going to end up like the best Quarterback in the CFL...

A big fish in an average sized pond but until he's in the UFC he'll never be the biggest fish in the biggest pond.

I could see

Fedor / Rogers
Fedor / Overeem
Fedor / Werdum

After that in Strikeforce I have no clue who he would fight.

Sometimes it may be enough for someone to be the best fish in their own pond. :laugh:

I honestly don't want to see anything other than Fedor / Brock in the UFC.

and in that case I don't even imagine Brock winning,
I just want to shut people up.
I don't think the UFC has a bunch of guys who pose serious threats to Fedor,
but in fairness I don't think any HW poses serious threats to Fedor.

before Pride collapsed, it was the big show, not the UFC. Fedor was the man there and he's still the man now. he's ranked #1 across the board. all the other #1 guys at 155 to 205, are UFC. basically, Fedor is so good that he stays #1 without stepping foot inside the Octagon. Sylvia and AA haven't looked good since Fedor finished them because he took their souls and made them gun shy. they were #6 and #3 at HW in the world when they faced Fedor. Barnett was #2, so Fedor has been facing top guys.
