10.15.2007 - 10:25:00 AM - Fedor Emelianenko Signs with M-1

All this talk of Randy Couture's so called retirement started the other day when The Fight Network announced that Fedor Emelianenko had committed exclusively to the new management of the M-1 organization. Since 1997 M-1 fight has been putting on fights in Russia under owner Vadim Finkelstein, who is also the manager of Emelianenko. Recently M-1 had been purchased by an unidentified american entertainment company. Many people have thought it to be Mark Cuban who just entered into the MMA forray. I thought it either to be PRIDE USA's backer Ed Fishman, Mark Cuban, or even possibly WWE owner Vince McMahon. But from what I've heard it won't be any of those people.

Emelianenko has been consider pound for pound the best fighter in MMA. After Zuffa bought PRIDE his status has been up in the air. His management team has been negotiating with UFC for a while now but both sides were sticking on a few key points. The UFC apparently offered Fedor $2 million per fight but were adament that he remain exclusive to the UFC and they didn't want him fighting in Sambo competitions. Fedor is a hero in his home nation of Russia where combat sambo is prominent sport. Fedor is a world champion in sambo and intends to compete in the World Championships this December. Those seemed to be the key sticking points as to why Fedor is now signed to compete with M-1.
