i think it could be good for both. there are some sick fighters coming out of that part of the world and this could stem some great recruiting out of the area. plus, Russians fucking love fighting as far as i can tell.

It would really be dumb not to have Fedor on the card, but who knows there was a report on Rabi's site that said, Fedor was close to fighting for the UFC over a year ago, but his father passed away, and things fell apart after that.
