Business negotiations are always a complex matter.

Business negotiations between the UFC and M-1 Global have at times bordered on bizarre.

But while the two companies recently failed once again to come together and bring Fedor Emelianenko, the world's top heavyweight, to the UFC, the world's top MMA promotion, M-1 Global exec Jerry Millen wants to make one thing perfectly clear: Emelianenko is not dodging UFC champ Brock Lesnar.

This sleeze makes me angry.

I don't want to get in to the reason why Fedor is with M-1 blah blah, I'm done with that whole scene it only gives M-1 publicity it hasn't earned.

But this guy...

Can you hate someone you don't know? cause I think I hate this Gary Millen, or Jerry or Slavd or Stone or whatever name he thinks will make people swallow more of his bs and think he's cool.

I hope Bas gets drunk and Gary steps on his toe causing his beer to drop and break leading to Gary be dropped and broken.

I just can't stand this guy.

"Not to take anything away from [Lesnar], but you've got to remember the UFC manufactured his rise to the top. They gave him a title shot so far ahead of other guys that might have deserved a title shot that if I was some of the heavyweights in the UFC, I'd be upset."




Let me start with I love to watch Fedor fight and think he is the best HW out there. But who did he fight to become the M-1 HW champ? I hate Jerry Millen and his knowing nothing about MMA ass! How bout when he tried to hype Fedor at the AA weigh ins and Bas called him a ass hole. Oh that was so good.

Fedor himself I believe is not but his management team on the other hand is very questionable

They did give him (Brock) a title shot fast but he did win it and then defended it so it isn't like he just got lucky. Millen needs to close it.

I agree Brock was pushed to the head of the class but Millen should just keep his topic of cono about frosting his tips or something

I don't think Fedor is ducking Brock. I do however think M-1 is a bunch of delusional people. Brock may not have deserved the title shot at the time but, who else did. Mir and Nogeira were fighting for the heavyweight title also. So they had to set up a tournament somehow and why not Brock. Carwin and Velasquez weren't quite up there yet. The only guy I could argue with was Kongo at the time.

Millen needs to mind his business and stay out of the UFC's.

Gary Millen is a joke, has no buisness in MMA. How this guy keeps getting high level jobs is beyond me. Another reason to hate M-1 is this joker is a freaking executive.

Look at this awesome quote:

"If he doesn't get his way, it's either his way or no way. That's what it boils down to. [M-1 Global] just wants to work somewhere where it's fair."

Rofl. I think he has Dana White confused with himself. Maybe that's why he believes he deserves things that he hasn't earned, like respect, or an even share of a successful company's profits without any contribution.

Idiot.
