i'm in shock
if they don't accept this deal than either a) fedor is scared to fight lesnar (which i doubt) or b) finkelstink is the most delusional man since adolf hitler
i'll bet the fact that the ufc has leaked the contents of their offer is a sure sign that fedor has turned it down
this way they can show how hard they tried and how retarded fedor's management is in order to sway public opinion in their favor (it worked for me cause if they don't accept this i vow to never watch fedor fight again)

kind of a silly question there
manipulated people aren't delusional they've simply been conned
someone who wants to manipulate millions of people to create a super race through force, genocide, and propaganda is delusional
there is a difference between following orders and trying to bend reality to your will
if the head of a housekeeping department told their night janitor he would fire him if he didn't paint the toilets green to keep the goblins out and the janitor does it cause he likes his job than who in this equation is delusional?
p.s. i was just making a goofy comparison so let's not turn this thread into an argument at history class

As for M-1 I've always looked at it like this...

Fedor is CONTRACTED to M-1, if the UFC want to sign a contracted fighter they must pay M-1 a fee to purchase Emelainenko even before personal terms of a contact are discussed. Much like a soccer transfer.

The whole co-promote issue is based around the fact that UFC will sign Fedor whilst his is still under an M-1 contract.

Hence M-1 one getting a piece of the PPV pie as well as promotional opportunities on the telecast.

OFF TOPIC, but the nazi germans were way more than just puppets, they took an active part on what is the unique mass extinction of 6 million completely innocent people, not to mention the world war they started with enthusiasm. I hate it when people bring that up to compare it to something completely different. There's nothing you could compare with NS, it was that much worse!

Not sure what good it will do, but anyone can send M-1 global a message from their website. I'm letting them know what a huge mistake they are making by rejecting this offer.

I say Zuffa should just buy M-1. If they are offering Fedor that much money, might as well buy that promotion.

And Bring Gegard Mousasi With You!

in another thread i suggested that they buy strikeforce, screw m-1, dont give those idiots a penny. dream is probably done after october, sengoku has been very frugal with spending, and cant afford fedor for more than a couple fights tops before they go into the red in a shrinking japanese mma market. with strikeforce under the zuffa umbrella vadim would have to snap out of his delusions.....then again, he might just be batshit crazy enough to think there are still other options out there.

This is truly disappointing. Fedor's legacy is going to have such a negative impact in the long run from not fighting in the UFC. He is essentially undoing what he spent the past years building up. Sad.
