Fedor owns all prideFC footage he was in, considering that fact alone, I doubt Fedor would be down with the mighty Zuffa's 'we-own-your-face-for-like,-ever clause'. I'm sure that was one of the deciding factors for him

It's amazing that, to this day, people still side with Zuffa and say "raping everyone is fine, they're protecting their brand" or "it's a business, to run a successful one you need to be an utter douche, duh". (not direct quotes) You don't have to be a scumbag to be successful, mistreating/bullying people that don't deserve it is never acceptable and if you believe otherwise, well, I'm sure you'd be singing a different tune if you were in contract negotiations with the glorious Zuffa demi-gods

Fedor also wants to be able to fight whoever he wants. that means guys outside the UFC. the UFC only wants him to fight within the UFC. he wants to be able to fight M-1, Bodog, Affliction or anywhere....not only UFC.

I've definatly missed alot this past year, but if memory serves correct, Fedor wants control of who he fights WITHIN the ufc, not freedom to fight whoever wherever. The only fights he was asking for outside of the UFC was new years in japan and his sambo tournys (if you even count those). I haven't heard anything about other orgs, but I know his managment wanted the UFC and m-1 to co-promote shows in Russia, thats the closest thing to fighting for another promotion (outside of NYE) that I've heard of.

I could be way off on this, like I said, I've missed ALOT in the sport.

Ehh, I am sure Fedor would bend on that.

M - 1 doesn't go promote Dream (does it???), it didn't co Promote Pride did it?

i think fedor just wants freedom, period. freedom to fight who he wants. freedom to fight where he wants. that's why he always has 1-fight deals and jumps from bodog to M-1 to affliction and now maybe to UFC for a 1-fight contract with barack lesnar. perhaps he had something in his childhood that scarred him and gave him this need for no commitment and freedom from longterm contracts. or maybe it's something else altogether

Sometimes, they won't buy at all, but at least you know it, but, it still doesn't keep me from going to their library every year and try again.

Yeah, well... Station Casino's did file bankruptcy, so maybe he isn't such an incredible business man.
