After 2 years, the pleas keep being made by M-1 Global. They do remain in contact with UFC about a Fedor Emelianenko fight although no negotiations have taken place. They remain hopeful of something happening though, perhaps buoyed by reports that Mirko Cro Cop has only a one-fight deal with UFC covering UFC 99.

Come on .... really, stop reporting useless crap. Until UFC get exclusives rights to the fighter on thier terms, this wil NEVER happen, so why even mention it?????

If fedor truly wants to go to the ufc he will but untill then look for this going nowhere. All he has to do is sign the contract and he will fight for the belt. Im just so tired of this 1 fight deal crap this is a lose lose for mma if he wins well hes leaving right afterwards and if he losses then hes leaving too. If he wants to fight then fight

i can understand why Dana doesn't want to do this. remember what happened when he entered Chuck at Pride's middleweight grand prix?

It'll be much worse because it'll actually be just one guy that puts his HW class to shame.

The way I see it,

If They can put Kimbo on TUF,then they should consider doing a one time fight with Fedor.
I know it's not as easy as that,but at the same time it's as easy as that.

Fedor's management wants the winner of Mir/Lesnar for the UFC Heavyweight Title though.

No just "one fight in the UFC".

I think one of our great competitors has always been the UFC and still is the UFC


that sums up exactly why you wont be getting a 1 fight deal.

these guys are getting desperate. its only a matter of time before they realize they need the ufc more than the ufc needs them.
