I just saw on Sherdog an article that said Fedor just signed a long-term contract with the new Pride, but then later saw that it may be an April Fool's joke. Anybody know the truth?

I read the same thread, and it seems like it was just a joke... They were talking like 3 million a fight, and that is really high if you look at what even the premier fighters are getting paid today...

Also I read an interview with Dana, Lorenzo Fertitta, and Sakakibara (Interview is in a thread I put up earlier today) that stated Fedor was still under contract at Pride... But I guess I don't know for how long.

I think I remember a few months ago he signed a four fight extension with them.
