    On Fedor Emelianenko Fighting In The UFC
    Fedor will never fight in the UFC. He’s past his prime. You’ve heard this story before, and you know it’s true, Vadim you sneaky bastard. We flew out to this fucking island in the middle of nowhere and gave them the best fucking deal in the history of mankind. And, Vadim, I bet you wish you could jump into a fuckin’ time machine and go back and take that deal now, don’t ya. Dummy.

    Yeah. Word from the "other" side is that Fedor is making more money doing the non-US tour, but that's strictly fight purse money. I don't doubt Fedor has international marketing deals, but he's a ghost in the US market. Don't get me wrong: there's plenty of money out there for people like Fedor and Vadim, but they've left a lot of money and legacy on the table by not doing this the UFC's way. Anybody who was supporting Fedor through that old argument is looking really dumb and has been looking dumb for a while now.

    Vadim has his own FB page. I guess it's really him, but if it is he's only got about 85 "likes". I kind of want to go on there and say shitty things about his management, but pissing off a Red Fella doesn't strike me as the best long term planning.

    Fedor is still top 5 or top 10 in the world. Of course I want to see Fedor vs Velasquez and Fedor vs Barnett.

    So to be "Top 5 or Top 10 in the World" you have to go 2-3 in your last five fights? And in one of the two wins you have to go to a decision against a hand picked tomato can?

    No you have to look at the big picture. Like I said I wouldn't give him a title shot but it would be exciting to see him fight the other top guys.

    Not really, unless you'd enjoy watching him lose in 30 seconds.

    I'd be mildly interested in seeing Fedor take on some mid-level UFC HW, but I'm certainly not going to lose any sleep over it. He's done and everyone knows it. Shoulda taken the opportunity when it was offered.

    It just got a bit a more interesting...

    Fedor Emelianenko's Manager Says 'We Are Ready To Have Fedor Fighting In The UFC'

    I don't know about the demand, but Fedor is still popular and him joining the UFC would sell a lot of PPV's.

    Bwhahahahaha. Top 5 no way.

    He's done but yes, it would be fun to see him vs some top guys.

    Unfortunately M1 has other cans, uh I mean plans for him.

    Fedor has never drawn an even mediocre PPV buy & while it would be interesting to see him fight a Roy Nelson or someone, he wants way too much money to be a non main event position
    It makes no fiscal sense for Dana to sign him
