In recent weeks there has been a great deal of speculation regarding Fedor Emelianenko's fighting future. Past interviews have hinted that the WAMMA heavyweight champion could be involved in face-to-face talks with UFC President Dana White as early as June.

The flow of information has created a great deal uncertainty regarding Fedor's status and where fans will be able to see him fight next. M-1Global.com recently was afforded the opportunity to interview M-1 Global Founding President Vadim Finkelchtein in order to get the promotion's official response to the unconfirmed rumors.....

No offense to Mir and Lesnar but i think if this happens their time will be up soon.

I'm a Fedor fan, but not even I would this much

The problem's been taken care of. Turns out it was a prompt that Firefox sometimes gives you on certain sites/pages when you reload or click Back/Forward when, say, the page doesn't seem to be responding. Nothing he did wrong.

Above me makes no sense.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't Dana said he isn't meeting with Fedor? Wasn't that just a rumor?

No, before he signed with Affliction, his managers met with Dana once. Fedor was not there. There was some email traffic between them after but Fedor said it was between his management and the UFC. He said he read them and didn't like the condescending tone.
