Hell NO! It's not a joke. If Fedor is in a place where he can negotiate, do it. Whatever he is holding out for or feels is best for him and his company/friends, I say go for it!


I Fedor!


Fedor! Fedor! Fedor!

Its called the Champions clause.

Every UFC Champion has that deal, you can retire from mma,
but you cannot leave the UFC as a champion to go to another organization.

To me it sounds illegal, but I don't know anything.

Basically, he wins, he keeps his job or retires,
but one loss and they can drop you like a bad habit.

Here's what is rumored to have been in the deal. It's probably as valid as anything you find on the internet orreceive in an email
This is an amazing deal and something no fighter will likely see again for a long time. The news comes from the Carmichael Dave Show:

- The UFC offered Fedor a 6 fight, 30 million dollar contract. That's 5 mil a fight

- The UFC offered Fedor an immediate title shot

- Lesnar/Fedor would be the biggest PPV in MMA history (we assume), and the UFC offered M-1 Global a cut of the PPV on top of Fedor's purse.

- Fedor was free to wear as many M-1 logoed items as he wished.

- The UFC also relented on allowing Fedor to compete in combat sambo.

Apparently, for good or bad, M-1 refuses to sign a deal unless the UFC agrees to co-promote.

I love Fedor to death, but if that was the other he is a MORON for not taking it.

Not just the money, but they will let him promote / use M - 1 logos,
has the UFC ever done that for anybody? ever?

It also sort of pisses me off that Vadim talks about m - 1 as though it is on the same level as the ufc,
he says they have millions and want to share costs and share profits with the UFC.
M - 1 does shows in Casino's with 500 people watching, why would the UFC let them just step into sharing profits?
and how on earth does M - 1 have millions of dollars? lol

i agree. m-1 is a joke. it took the ufc years to get to where its at why should this so called fight promotion reap those kinds of benefits for not really doing anything except sticking their logo on a cage or ring? they have fedor and thats it. if history has told us anything its that having your so called company depend on one fighter is not gonna get you anywhere. they have a forum and it has pictures of ufc fighters next to the m-1 logo as if they were m-1 fighters.
