You'd think knockout victories over two former UFC heavyweight champs, would have UFC president Dana White salivating over Fedor Emelianenko. That's not the case according to White who says that he didn't even watch the Affliction 2 fight card and still hasn't seen the Fedor-Andrei Arlovski fight. Even though close to 9,000 paid to get into the Honda Center and the card did a gate of over $1.5 million, White doesn't care:

"If Fedor doesn't care than neither do I. If he wants to come over and fight the best in the world then that's cool with me. At the end of the day, if Fedor wants to fight here I'm here, if he doesn't I don't care."

wow, you should change the title of this to Dana calls CBC scumbags. It's a big deal in Canada for sure. I could tell there was shady editing in that story.

I find that to be just hilarious. He certainly has changed his tune though. He has gone from calling Fedor a complete bum who is not a top HW in the world to being bitter that he won't fight under a UFC contract.....or that's how he sounds. In the end Dana not trying to work with Fedor is bad for the sport. There are good fights to be had in the cage that would benefit both Fedor and the UFC tremendously. Fighters like Fedor don't come along everyday. In the end if White looks back and Fedor has never stepped foot in the cage I think he will look kind of foolish. It seems rediculous that the best mma organization and the sports top HW would never do business. I am sure a contract compromise could be met to make both parties happy if White would work at it. I am a huge UFC fan and I DO care about seeing Fedor in the UFC...I want it badly!

I could care less if fedor comes to the ufc, because theres just too much bull crap around this issue.

Theres other good fights I can look forward too, instead.

Dana white and zuffa have done alot of good for mma if fedor doesn't want to join the ufc its not Dana's fault, there a method to Dana's madness and u seem to have taken what Dana and the lorenzo brothers have done with the ufc for granted if it wasn't for them the ufc may have died back in 2000.

when they purchased ufc in 2001 they were losing millions people said they were crazy now look at ufc and the explosion on mma in the US.

i don't think u have any idea how hard it was for Dana to turn the ufc into what it is today and at the end of the day he will look anything but foolish no matter what happens with fedor

Dana Makes money and Brock is going to bring in more then Fedor. By beating Randy he proved he is a legit fighter I see nothing wrong with Dana pulling in more fans with a legit guy. Fedor has found a home in the US but after he fights Barnett he is right back in the same boat. There won't be anyone for him to fight and everyone will be call for a Brock fight ir a Mir fight or even a Randy fight.

I'm calling BS. White is never tired of money. Look, he'll talk smack on Fedor all day and say he isn't anything.

But the same day they sign him, Dana will be announcing that they've acquired the greatest fighter in all of MMA history.

He's worse than a politician.

Thats true but thats what it takes to be a promoter. At least a good one. All the good promoter's are shady like that.

I don't dispute that Dana White has done great things for mma in North America and in general for that matter). I also would never claim to know how hard he worked to get the UFC to where it is today. I do know he has invested himself into it though and for that I think every UFC/mma fan is appreciative.
However the question at hand here is about Fedor and Dana's views of him. Dana White is wrong about Fedor's status as a top HW in the world....he is the best HW in the world. He quite possibly is the best p4p fighter in the world. All I am saying is that if both UFC and Fedor would compromise a little both would prosper because of it. Fedor in the UFC would be a huge deal and to me it only seems natural that the best fighter in the world (or one of) fight in the worlds greatest mma organization. To me it would be foolish not to pursue a contract with Fedor further.

was dana trying to use MMAmath?

when pressed about fedor ko'ing arlovski he said, "so has tim sylvia" and then he said arlovski ko'd tim sylvia in 3 minutes as well. how would this help prove dana's point? it's not like its a triangle where every ko's each other... fedor > arlovski and tim sylvia -- both ufc hw champs.


and after barnett theres gonna be kharitonov, overeem, yvel, roger gracie, antonio silva, etc etc

most of the best heavy weights arent in the ufc.
