If this is true, then this really sucks. How long can he stay the #1 ranked P4P fighter in the world when he hasn't fought anyone of note in a while, and a large portion of the top heavyweight talent is in the UFC? What a bummer...

He's coming off of my list. He'll be fighting a bunch of no names

He fights exclusively for this promotion but wouldn't do it for the UFC????

Do you think the American company that bought M-1 is Mark Cuban's company?

Dana, I know how much you love internet postings. I hope you read this one.
You are so full of B.S its sick. Keep your mouth closed and do what you say you are going to do!!!

Well now it appears the UFC lost "the best fighter" in the word. What happened not enough money???? So he has some loyalty for his Sambo fans... and what the UFC cant stand that? Why dont you just buy M-1 now, K-1 and tear it apart the rest like you did to PRIDE.

PAY for FEDOR!
PAY for Gomi!
PAY for Diaz!
PAY for Matt L. Give the fans the best fighters and the best fights.

This seems like a Bill Murray movie...except with Fedor instead of Andie MacDowell.

"committed exclusively to the new ownership of M-1 Mix-Fight Championship, which has been purchased outright by an undisclosed America entertainment-related company, according to a source close to the deal who spoke on the condition of anonymity. "

Why can't the undiscloised company be the UFC?

Because that would make no sense. If he was going to be signed by a company owned by Zuffa, the only organization Zuffa would let him fight in would be the UFC. To determine the true #1 HW!

This is the beginning of the end for Fedor. He's gotta dump his manager and think about his career instead of his loyalty to that bum. How good of a manager can he be if he makes all kinds of outrageous demands at the expense of his fighter and with his own companies interests in mind. Say what you want about White, but what Zuffa offered Fedor was ridiculous, 2 mil per fight and an immediate title shot. I guess Fedor's people forgot they can't just use his name recognition to bully people into signing him. You wouldn't see Kobe Bryant expecting to sign with a team at four times the amount of Lebron James and only as long as he could bring his buddies from the street court and be under contract to the euro-league and spanish league as well, just for fun. That wouldn't happen, no matter how his agent tried to use his dominance at the game, and especially as Fedor can't straight up claim to have fought against the best in the world because they get dummied by people like Cheick Kongo. The key word there is "use" as well, because wait and see how he is regarded by so called Russian MMA managers and promos alike if he loses a couple of times. With the continued emergence of flaws in Pride's so called unbeatable fighters people will question more and more how good Fedor really was. If we see Couture beat Nog and if Gonzaga shitcans some other tough fighters, Couture will be the better proven fighter by the end of 2008. Think that's crazy? Well, given Couture's recent heavyweight stint plus the fact he will be likely be fighting the likes of Nog and Vera this year, and with guys like Arlovski still hanging around, people will be hard pressed to consider Fedor better with spectacular bouts with Oleg Taktarov, a bunch of Russian Sambo cans, and possibly a dancing bear drunk on Slivovitz.
