A long-awaited agreement between the Ultimate Fighting Championship and the man considered the world's best mixed martial arts fighter, Fedor Emelianenko, is expected to be announced by UFC President Dana White on Friday, a source with information about the negotiations told The Times today.

The source, who asked not to be identified because he's not authorized to speak publicly about the dealings, called negotiations between the UFC and Fedor "very civil" just days after Fedor's scheduled Affliction Trilogy fight Saturday against Josh Barnett was canceled.

it's happening, it makes too much sense for everybody involved. fedor will be in the ufc, and the ufc heavyweight division needs to watch out.

Why?

Then we couldn't see Fedor vs Lesnar, Fedor vs Carwin, Fedor vs Valesquez...

He woulda fought Sylvia and Arlovski again.


Damn...some people are never satisfied. Fedor in the UFC is Fedor in the UFC, I don't care when it is

Not getting my hopes up either. I am waiting to hear it directly from Dana's mouth. Then I will be a dancing banana!

if this deal actually does fall through, i'd like to see fedor-couture first, and then fedor-brock later.

I think I would to. I just would be scared Brocl would lose his next figh, and that the Lesnar Fedor fight may not happen then.

Stuff like this came up last time around. I'm not holding my breath. Till Dana and Fedor come out saying the have made a deal I'm not going to buy in to it.

Until I see a picture of Fedor and Dana White shaking hands,or hear it from Dana himself,I'm skeptical.

Well I agree wit h that but my thought was that Fedor will probably lose soon. I am a huge Fedor fan and I really think Brock would dominate him....So my comment should have been I wish this was the Fedor of 3 years ago...
