Earlier this month, M-1 Global exec Jerry Millen made waves by claiming Fedor Emelianenko would be willing to fight Brock Lesnar for free.

UFC president Dana White recently told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) that he's prepared to call Millen's bluff.

"They'll do the fight for free?" White asked. "That's [expletive] weird because I offered them millions of dollars to take the fight and he didn't take it. Now [Emelianenko] wants to fight for free? When and where? I'd love him to fight for free.

"I'll make that [expletive] fight right now for free. Let's do it."

Jerry Millen is a tool! I honestly think Dana would do that fight for free just to spite Jerry Millen.

How is he going to call their bluff when he's uncertain if Brock will even fight again? Millen is a clown, he shouldn't even waste his time responding to him.

This would be great if it happened.

Sadly,I believe the situation is becoming less and less about Fedor fighting the current roster of the UFC HW division and more about Millen and Whites personal war of words and one-up-menship. It seems like the dialogue between the two just keeps getting more over the top every time we turn around.


Personally this one leaves me torn.

1.I really don't care for "Jerry" Millen. Maybe he has truley become a real MMA fan since his initial influence in PRIDE but I think it's still something to do with the money that attracts him. If Bas Rutten has something bad to say about someone I take notice.

2. I consider Dana the lesser of two evils. What I like about Dana is that I know "who" he is. He's a promoter. I don't always take Dana's opinion at face value. He promotes his product and does it very well.

I guess that's the difference. One can look at Dana's posistion with a non-biased out look and see why he's their. I don't think the same conclusion can be reached with Millen and if you do reach that conclusion it's probably not vavorable for him.

I would love to see Fedor take Brock,but I would love to see Dana get one over on Millen. Regardless of the smack talk between these two,if this fight were to happen it would be very good for the sport.

Whites got him there, when someone calls someone out to fight and they say lets do it and that person that called him out walks away well it looks bad for a long time.
my guess is , it doesnt happen for free and the UFC wins again

Lol.Awesome shots back from Dana.

Whether he comes off as unprofessional or not with his language, he always seems to hit the nail on the head. I love that attitude. Props to Dana.

The problem will be getting brock to fly to Moscow , take a 3 hour train ride to Stary Oskol and then fight fedor in his gym. If Anyone listened to the mma junkie radio show , this would be very apparent .

Realistically theres no way in hell brock agrees to that . Can you honestly imagine Brock , a guy who despises doing promotional media in the US, willingly take a 3 hour train ride after a flight to Russia

Imagine if brock loses to fedor without him being locked into a contract , bye bye ufc credibility.

This wasnt a bluff by m1 global , this was gary millen running his mouth again , m1 didnt agree to this , neither did fedor , nor would they .

Shocking that you would post this telnights .

Someone needs to get these two in the same room and then start whispering stuff in their ears that the other one said about them. "Hey Fedor, Brock says you're scared of him. He says Russians have no balls and thats why you won't come to the UFC."

"Hey, Brock, Fedor says you should go back to the professional wrestling and hunting is stupid."
