News from the Red Devil team:

"Fedor Emelianenko is going to be in a training camp from August 12th to September 2nd. As it stands now, his next fight will take place in September. Fedor's opponent, time and place of the bout will be announced after all the documents are signed".


Read this on another forum, I don't speak Russian and I can't register at that forum since I can't read it, but someone translated that as a possible indicatin he has signed somewhere. I had the original Russian text, but the forum here didn't translate it into Russian characters either.

I'm thinking it's not the UFC since the cards are pretty complete in September.

September 17th HEROES card?

At this point in time Fedor has no choice but to sign with the UFC.

If he chooses not too sign with the UFC, then you know he is in the fight game only to make a big payday and he will just continue to jump from promotion to promotion and take whoever can offer him the biggest payday at a time.

If he signs with UFC he will forever cement his claim to the greatest if he can finish his career strong. I have heard him say that he is only in it for the money unfortunately but I really hope that is not the case. Wins over Couture, Gonzaga, Arlovski will add three more big names to his resume and be a great moment in MMA history.

Lets hope this fight is against The Maniac.

Also. they said on the beat down yesterday that Fedor's mangers denied the rumors that he had signed with anyone. He said negotiations with K-1 and the UFc were still ongoing. I'm listening to the podcast right now and just heard it.

Fedor isn't "ducking" anyone.
He'll fight where he thinks is best for him...maybe he has signed with the UFC.
He signed/will sign a contract that's best for him, doesn't need your input.
He didn't go into your house and tell you where to put the furniture.

I think he wanted to fight Sambo, so if Dana wouldn't allow him to do that under UFC contract, I can see his point.
A contract can't be one-sided.

As tito said, the UFC is a monopoly now. K-1 needs to blow up! The UFC is thinking hey we can make people sign the contracts we want them to and they won't be able to sign anywhere else if they want to fight the best, and guess what 99% of fighters are egomaniacs driven by the need to be the best. I was reading about some of the things dana's had people sign, one example is Mirko has a clause stating he has to do american interviews, well he pretty much threw that out of the window lol, and thats why dana's so pissed at him all the time. If fedor did sign with another org, all the power to him, the UFC shoulden't be the only game in town, bad for mma IMO. I would like to see all the best fighting, but if and when they do I want it to be a fair contract that their fighting under.
