"At this moment, for us, the key thing is the level of the opponent, and not how much we get paid. I can say that if we were unable to agree with Ishii, we wouldn't participate in this tournament. We had concurrent offers with other DREAM fighters, but this is not for Fedor's level, and we didn't want to have a fight with mediocre fighters, taking a step backwards. We want to be taking steps forward and we will follow this in the future. We want to have three fights. One in Russia, one in Europe, and one in the USA. We really want to get a rematch with Werdum, but he is locked up in the prison called UFC, and because of that arranging for him to fight Fedor would be very difficult. Dana White is like a dog on hay -- he neither eats it himself, nor lets the others eat it. There are many other good fighters, whom we are considering. For instance, Josh Barnett. We need to wait for the Strikeforce heavyweight tournament to end and then we can see how likely it is that we can arrange a fight."

These guys already ran his career well into the ground, time to shut up and go away now, because no one cares about anything they have to say anymore. Leverage is completely gone, and everyone realizes that Dana was 100% correct when he called M-1 a bunch of crazy russians who were impossible to deal with, back when people cared about seeing Fedor in the UFC.

M-1 is a disease to MMA.

Agree 100%! M1 are a complete joke! Even now they are using Fedor and even to an extent Dana and the UFC to keep themselves in the news. They have proven time and time again that they want the money Fedor brings in and don't care about his career or legacy. Also I hate M1 because Vadim Finkelchtein looks like an extra from Lord of the Rings.
