Wondering just what Zuffa offered Fedor Emelianenko? Check out the link to see what the offer from the UFC looked like!

IF that is what the ufc offered and fedor doesnt take it, he is a fool and im convinced that finkelstein is a bigger tool than gary shaw and his son combined.
IF this is true dana, the fertitas, and the ufc are truly trying to give the fans what they want to see and should be applauded for it because this is BY FAR the best mma deal any fighter has ever gotten and shows they are really willing to bend for fedor.
IF fedor doesnt sign, i will be cry.

Are you freaking kidding me!?

Well, I think this just puts the final nail in the coffin for M1 not being completely at fault for Fedor not being in the UFC. The UFC was letting Fedor do sambo AND giving M1 a cut of the PPVs AND allowing them to put as much advertising as they want on his clothing!

And on top of that, Fedor gets and instant title shot AND 5 freakin' million dollars a fight, NOT including PPV cuts that M1 gets themselves!

How can they not be happy with that deal!?

I don't know if I buy it. I know M1 wants to co-promote like crazy but turning down a cut on the ppv"s and possibly having a huge banner hanging from the cage and Fedor walking down covered from head to toe with M1 gear for possibly the biggest UFC event of all time?

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

M1 should accept this deal. They could use this deal as a stepping stone towards negotiating a co-promotion in the future!!

WAH WAH WEE WAH!

Pretty large sums of money right there, not only for Fedor but for M-1. Take your cut and go build your own arena, a**hole. Honestly do they think that a co-promotion with say, strikeforce would garner more attention than covering the main event fighter of the biggest PPV in the sport with their logos?

The money is there, the freedom is there, the advertising is there... What else could you really want?

On a side note, releasing this information is a really awesome move on the part of the UFC. EVERY fan in the world is now firmly on the UFC's side, should hopefully put some pressure on them to take the deal. They'll all walk away with a pretty bad image if they refuse this.

A guy with an up and down career w/ recent wins over goodridge and hunt, and some more ufc scraps in werdum. two guys nowhere near fedors level.
