He talked about that when he was interviewed by Michael Schivello. Sucks that Fedor aligned himself with people who didn't allow him to fight to his potential, but whatever. Past is the past.

Fedor never came across as that kind of guy to me. He was a machine in the ring, but outside it he just seemed to roll with the punches. M-1 was behind all the crazy demands. They took advantage of his apathetic personality.

Fedor still left the sport as the greatest HW of all time.

Fedor's passion for MMA died with PRIDE and his management after he left RTT was absolutely horrendous.

Dana is full of wet shit as usual. What is he promoting here again with this same old crap?

Regardless of he said, she said, that would have been one hell of a fight and a bigger event. Every MMA fan and their mother would have watched it. The anticipation would have been insane. Oh well, the past is the past.

I don't really think there is a THE greatest HW of all time

the only THE's I would maybe give is GSP and Anderson Silva for their respective classes

I don't understand how Affliction and SF could sign him and Dana could not.

Both companies were willing to co-promote the event with M1 Global, The UFC wasn't.

DFW being DFW, overexaggerating everything and dropping F-bombs 3x a sentence. Why can't he tell us the amount now, there aren't ant negotiations going on

""When I tell you we did everything, someday I'll tell the story of how much we offered that [expletive], too," White said"

tell us now
