Mark Cuban wants Fedor Emelianenko to fight for him on his network HDNET!

Cuban has the $$$$ to make this a reality and difficult for any other interested organization to compete.

Wow, I guess he couldn't get the Cubs and so he is looking for something else to invest in now. I really like Mark Cuban and know that if he thinks MMA should be billed as more mainstream and as a sport and whatnot then he is going to work really hard on it. The downside is that then Fedor isn't in UFC of course. God, the war of words that could start between Cuban and Dana that would be fun.

HAHA hilarious!

He also owns or at least part owns the TV network HDnet which he references in the article and they show a lot of MMA so he is looking for ratings there.

And just as an education about Cuban he is like a big kid. I read he bought his mansion because foyer was large enough to play wiffle ball in. He is also always getting fined by the NBA for talking about the commissioner and officials and he even worked a shift at Dairy Queen one day to prove he was still connected to the working man.
I think he is a great guy and a great personality and could be a real asset to MMA's mainstream success.

PS does anyone know if he had anything to do with the Art of War promotion in Dallas last weekend?
