M-1 Global, Fedor agree to go separate ways

“There is so much going on in the world of mixed martial arts right now that we have decided it is in our best interest if our company and Fedor go our separate ways,” said M-1 Global President and CEO Monte Cox.

The drama that goes on with Fedor is too much to take anymore. I really don't want to see him in the news again unless it reads something like:
"Fedor v. Arlovski"
or
"Fedor v. Cro Cop II"

Fedor and Randy are like the Brittney Spears of MMA, you cant go to a website without SOMETHING on one of them.

Is it just me or does this mean their are officially 6 top ten HW's outside the UFC now?

I'm no business whizz but isn't the HW devision the biggest draw to casual fans?With 5 or 6 of the biggest names floating about i think the UFC has little choice but to pay the cash Fedor wants to make sure they stay the dominant MMA company.

So far theirs : -
Fedor
Randy
Arlovski
Barnett (not to sure if he was on a 1 fight contract or not)
Aleksander
Sylvia
Cro Cop (He still may be signed but he's not fighting in the UFC)

That list right there is better than the tallent that is currently signed!
Lets hope the UFC does something about Fedor an signs him now!







An Arlovski for more money!

That list would sell out events individually all year long. Zuffa better wake up here...get their act together. In one swoop a huge promoter could sign almost all these guys and EASILY rival ufc for sales and PPV's.

Just sign him already, Dana. Then Couture will come back and fulfill what's left of his contract and everyone's happy.

Good call. I could really care less anymore. The world of MMA is getting so out of hand right now it drives me crazy. I'm afraid that with all of these different fight orgs popping up that MMA is gonna get out of hand and there are gonna be top fighters in too many different orgs and belts will become almost meaningless, because the top fighters won't be fighting each other.

Please Please Dana sign stop being an arse!

I dont understand why Dana dosent just pay Fedor the money he wants if they can afford to pay Chuck half a million to lose to Keith Jardine im sure they can afford to see Fedor run through their HW divison

Really? Only him vs Nog 3 intrigues me. Him vs Kongo GG and Werdum doesn't excite me much.
