I would have to do some digging, but I am pretty sure that Finkelstein eluded to these same things in the past when asked about Lesnar. Also, he was just answering a question, not making a formal press release simply to trash Brock.
Fedor is at an entirely different stage of his career, and he doesn't have to cater to anybody who doesn't want to play ball on his terms if he doesn't want to. His legacy is already cemented, and what Fedor has accomplished is pretty remarkable in a sport where we see time and time again that anything can happen. Granted, M-1 and Fedor may overstate his actual worth in terms of international drawing power when they are sitting at the bargaining table, but that's another perk that comes with being on the level of a guy like Fedor. If he doesn't want to fight 3 times a year, that's his choice and he has earned the right to make that choice at this point.
All to often, sports fans, especially fight fans, feel like they have a sense of entitlement when it comes to what athletes should be doing. If a fighter gets towards the end of his career and starts fighting less, people say he's a coward. If a player on a team becomes a free agent and leaves for another city, the fans hate the guy like Lebron James. I personally just think it's silly.
