only if the ufc will co-promote with his management M-1 global which will never happen.. sucks id love to see fedor taking care of buisness in the ufc

We might be surprised because soooo many people want to see Lesnor getting his ass kicked!

Fedor and Lesnor could become the biggest UFC fight ever if they can put it together.

It's not Fedor's fault it's his management.
No it's the punk Dana White's fault. M-1 wants to co-promote any event Fedor fights at, but Dana's ego won't allow him to be anything but #1. What the moron doesn't realize is that if he does co-promote an event w/ M-1, two things happen. 1. UFC gets Fedor 2. UFC has the biggest PPV & gate in their history. Dana needs to realize that he wants Fedor, not vice versa. If you have something I want, I need to do what it takes to get it from you. Dana needs to realize that the world doesn't revolve around him. There was MMA before Dana White & there will be MMA long after Dana White is gone.

According to white he has offered fedor "an amazing deal".How much could that be,probobly WAY more than he has offered anyone else.So why wouldn't he take it?Fedor has known for a long time now that the UFC wants him.It must not be about the money because he would be set for life with a couple of UFC fights,maybe just one,rumor has it he was offered $30 mil?
Can't think of a good reason to turn that down.
Co-promote is some bs excuse.

Any deal over 600k would be considered an "amazing" deal for Dana considering he doesn't pay his fighters $hit...................

Fedor makes over $1 million a fight, so why would he want to sign for less, just to make Dana a ton of money.

UFC 100 reportedly had over 1 million PPV'[email protected]$45 each, that's over $45 million, yet the top fighter only made 500k. Wonder where the rest of the money went. I think it's great that someone is finally standing up to Dana and giving him the big "f" you that he's given people for years.

I like how Dana tried to downplay the non-signing of Fedor w/ the re-signing of the Huntington Beach Wash Up. Tito Ortiz..............come on, when was the last time he was actually competitive in a fight............

I read Fedor was offered a 5 fight deal for 5 mil a fight, plus PPV revenue, a merchandising cut etc...

Too much ego on every side involved I guess.

I heard/read where Fedor also wants to fight in other organizations during the length of the UFC contract. This probably is the big hang-up. Can't blame UFC for not wanting its draw to fight for someone else why they are under contract. What happens if he gets hurt or even worse, gets caught with a lucky punch and loses. UFC is then left holding the bag....

Dana White was going to let him fight his other stuff, combat ***** (?? sounds like a wild Friday night at Camp Lejune Dennys).. I read the big hang up was his Russian promoter wants world-wide co-promotion rights.. as if UFC was going to give away half their business to sign one dude.
