Fedor should feel like that hot brunette cheerleader you knew in highschool that was sort of cool with everyone so every guy thought they had a shot. Some dudes would do her homework...the other guys would buy her flowers on Friday; everything was good until she broke the news that she can't be anyone's girlfriend without a co-promotion with M-1 Global. That's the new excuse. If a cop pulls you over, just tell him you can't accept the ticket without being co-promoted by M-1 Global. Girlfriend nags you to take her our shopping? Ask her if she's being co-promoted by M-1 Global, if the answer is no point her to your team of Russians and tell her to renegotiate.
Yesterday, the news dropped that the UFC offered Fedor $30,000,000 for a six fight deal. That number has varied over the course of the day, but the amount being reported has never dropped below the seven figure mark. The only obstacle in all of this is Fedor’s team and their requirement of being co-promoted with the UFC. No one even knows exactly what that means but we can all assume that M-1 would get a large portion of the PPV sales and get their company directly on that (JUST saw a Scientology commercial on TV. Lost my entire train of thought. Give me one second) on the mainstream map of America.
Now it’s being reported that The Last Emperor is being offered $500,000 from Strikeforce and another $500,000 from CBS as a part of a six fight deal and a cut of the PPV (if there is any). M-1 Global will also get their wish of a co-promotion with Strikeforce. Wherever Fedor ends up, his camp still insists that Fedor will fight this year. [Source]
