From the LA Times blog:

Joost Raimond, the operations manager of Emelianenko's global promotion company M-1, invited the winner of the July 11 UFC heavyweight championship fight between Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir to attend the Emelianenko-Barnett bout, and pushed for the UFC to allow Emelianenko to fight that man as part of a one-fight contract on a card that could be fully promoted by UFC.

He should let it happen, sure it's a risk but there's also a nice payoff

Dana won't want his HW Champion destroyed by a guy who will leave immediately.

I think all the possible matchups are very interesting:

Fedor vs. Lesnar
Fedor vs. Mir
Barnett vs. Lesnar
Barnett vs. Mir

I would like to see Fedor in the UFC for at least four fights. I really want to see Fedor/Couture.

Yeah, Dana is going to risk having his champion get beat then the new champ fighting for another organization right after..... nobody is that stupid, especially Dana. Just a stupid proposal..... Mabey a fight with Couture would make sense. It's a fight that makes Randy, and Fedor happy, makes a killing on PPV buys, and opens the door for Fedor to remain in the UFC. But there is no way they would ever sign anyone to a one fight contract and give him a title fight.

It sucks that the UFC and the greatest mixed martial artist in history will probably never come to an agreement.

it is a business decision for dana and more of a fighter decision for fedor to fight best before he loses it but fedor is making enough money overseas it is not even funny. Fedor should just sign a four fight deal and retire after that cuz after four solid wins I think he has nothing else to do in the sport but maybe train. No one likes fighters who fight past there prime but it is hard to say for Fedor cuz russians like him are not human. Fedor would make more then any other fighter in history for sure cuz how hard is it to promote the baddest man on the planet.

I think fedor's manager is trying to discredit the UFC by saying this because it is not constructive because it is not how the UFC works and is obviously to a 2 year old that the UFC would not touch it with a 40 foot pole, complete retardation, if they actually think this would work and the UFC would want to there is not business school or logic in general in Russia at all.

Sounds good with one stipulation.

One fight contract if he loses.

4 minimum if he wins.
