I think Fedor is locked up with some bad bad Russians.

I have to be honest if he feels the same way that Vadim does deep down I've lost a huge amount of respect for him...

This whole time they tried to do that do you really think they thought it would happen?

That have not been nogiating they have just been responding. They got every concession that FEDOR wanted they didn't get what M1 wanted.

Fedor said in the interview if he had originally been given the same offer as Dana gave him now, he would already have been in the UFC and likely still with them.

I guess Fedor got a stake in M-1 after the first negotiations with the UFC?

Vadim never said 1 bad thing about Dana or the UFC, but said since both of their interests are to expand MMA, they should work together. Dana & company, myself included, don't see it that way - they see their way to world dominance of MMA. There's no doubt in my mind even in Russia, UFC will be the dominant MMA organization within a decade. I thought it was funny to hear Vadim talk about M-1 making a video game, lol

You can never judge by Fedor's facial expressions. He always looks that way. I have had this for years now.....

as much as Dana thought he could get Fedor without co-promoting, yeah.

they didn't get rid of the champ clause or agree to co-promote, so no, they didn't give in to every concession. and Fedor is part owner of M-1, so they are one in the same.

exactly.

before he got with M-1, the UFC tried to get him but he turned them down. now they wait til he's part owner of M-1 to offer him this deal? they will co-promote with M-1 before 2010 is out.

Goat, there is no way the UFC is going to co-promote with M-1 Global. Did you not hear Dana talk about M-1 during his teleconference?

Fedor wont be scared. He might well be bored, tiered, or not completely following the language at a press conference, remember English isnt his first language.

Fedor isnt afraid of committment, he just doesnt want to be tied down, and because of his Status he actually can afford to tell Premiers to piss off if they dont accept him on his terms.

Chuck Liddell should probably stay retired, I mean I dont mind seeing him fight, and I dont really think Dana White should be able to force fighters into retirement quite so publically...but...does anyone really want to see him v Tito
