PRIDE heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko is headed to New York City for a Monday press conference to announce a new contract, MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has learned.

The Russian fighter, who is one of the sport’s top-ranked fighters and MMA’s most sought-after free agent, will share the details of his recently signed contract at the reception.

Event organizers are tight-lipped about the contract, as well as the fight promotion that signed Emelianenko. However, all answers will be answered on Monday at 5:30 p.m. ET, we’re told.....................

Wouldn't it be crazy if the mystery owner of this company was actualy............................................................................................................................................................Randy "the Natural Couture"!


That's right.He kept it hush hush the wholel time.That would be a bigger twist ending than the Usual Suspects.

Will Fedor sign with the UFC? I don't think so. I think he'll sign w/ someone else.

Fedor has already announced he won't be fighting for the UFC.He's supposedly going to name the mysterious new owner of M-1.

LOLAGE thats bang up to date with the latest news eh

You are aware of Randys resignation right?

I just hope they have also signed Josh Barnett so Fedor has a decent fight before his *fingers crossed* fight with Randy in M1

I sort of hope the new owner is Cuban, but I believe that has pretty much been ruled out. If the owner is McMahon, there is no way I'll ever watch a fight! I would almost rather have Don King.

There is no way that Fedor fights in the UFC, and I should have seen it coming. MMA is on a huge raise in Russia, and they can't have their top fighter sign up with an American league. That would hurt Russian pride. I would not be surprised if the "mysterious" M-1 was well-connected with the Russian mob, or the government, or both.

We might have the answer, courtesy of Wrestling Observer...

If this is a hint of the new ownership of M-1, Fedor Emelianenko's signing will be announced Monday at the offices of fashion designed Marc Ecko

Geez, wasn't the Bonds #756 ball enough for him?
