In a recent interview Dana White stated that the reason the Fedor deal has not been finished is because he was "dealing with crazy Russians." Needless to say Fedor's boxing coach and trainer was none too pleased, going as far as to say the "U.S. and Russia will never see eye to eye, and I don't care what he says."

Real smart, the guy is trying to get the best fighter on Planet Earth, and he not only disrespects Fedor's team and handlers, but also his entire country. Keep the hits coming Dana.

Well IMO if that's the case Dana shouldn't think.

Fedor is a top dog and wants to be paid like one. I feel the UFC is overpaying talent and stepping on the guys that have been with them for years. Coming into the UFC and having a title fight right out of the gate is just stupid. We overpaid for Cro Cop and he thoroughly disappointed. Who is the next "talent" that gets his a$$ kicked?

I noticed you stated "we"...are you a member of the UFC organization?? The next "talent" to come in and get his ass kicked?? Yeah, Fedor, Shogun, Hunt, Barnett, Gomi, Melendez, Sakurai, those bums would get smoked in the UFC.

Anyways, your post had nothing to do with the thread.

I agree, he has problems with subs, we know that. Still, he reversed Fedor a lot of times and has shown an incredible natural ability for mma. Standing up and striking nobody in UFC could deal with him or win. Period. There are reports and pics of him training and he's down to 270 already.

This has nothing to do with the US or Russia. Why did Dana have to say that? Fedor can screw off lol...you do realize he is the best p4p fighter in the world. Dana obviously wants him so he can have the best fighter in his org.

Am I reading this correctly?? We're talking about Fedor, the greatest mma fighter OF ALL TIME. Not only do you sign him no matter what he wants, you don't disrespect his ethnic background and his team!! The UFC HW division doesn't need him?? Hmm let's see...

Randy - Please, Chuck knocked him out, TWICE. Fedor would maul him and end his career.

GG - Gonzaga?? The guy that caught a sleeping CC and got knocked out by Werdum?? He's not even top 5.

Nog - Hmm, I thought they fought before.

CC - See above

AA - Please. Arlovski would be lucky to survive one round, unfortunately even with luck he still wouldn't.

Sylvia - hahahaha

Vera - An annihalation.

So that's the HW division that doesn't need Fedor?? Not only do they need Fedor, they need his brother, Barnett, Hunt, Kharitonov, etc.
