Anonymous Source Says UFC and Fedor Will Announce a Deal This Week

(When reached for comment, a source speaking on the condition of anonymity also confirmed for us that "Bloodsport" was totally kickass.)

Don’t get too excited just yet, but a media outlet that is neither an internet forum nor a celebrity gossip site is reporting that a deal to bring Fedor Emelianenko to the UFC is being “finalized” and will be announced later this week.  Because, much like Jay Hieron, we’ve had our hearts broken too many times to get our hopes up, we’re remaining skeptical for the moment despite the L.A. Times’ assertion (via WKR) that negotiations have been “very civil.”

If you’re looking for reasons to believe this report, the UFC did send out an email to announce a conference call on Friday wherein Dana White “will break all the latest news and developments.”  Then again, Fedor has a press conference scheduled for Wednesday.  If he’s signed a deal or is at least close to one, he’d have to either steal the UFC’s thunder by announcing it two days before them, or else say nothing of interest and generally waste everyone’s time.  

Of course there’s always the possibility that his press conference will have nothing to do with his MMA future at all and will instead be a forum for him to answer questions about his newest short story collection, “What We Talk About When We Talk About Stoic Russian Indifference,” but again, let’s not get our hopes up.

Killdozer put it on you, and you are loser.
you just got cyber bitch slapped, now turn the other cheek you internet attention whore.

The only thing you own is a permanent spot in your moms basement. Get a life fag.
KillDozer- July 29, 2009 at 7:23 pm
the only fag round here is you Kadumel, stop wasting my time with ur childish insults, you are so dumb you cant even type a sentence that makes sense. And don't call me troll, because troll lives in ur pussy, and I'm just guy who owns you on CP.
The Truth- July 29, 2009 at 5:36 pm
AA nor Sylvia have EVER been top 5 worthy fighters.

Like I said, Fedor...what have done for me lately? NOTHING!

I say they sign him and make another Tourney for 2010. 8 man. Use the TUF winner, Carwin, Lesnar, etc etc etc.
Kadumel- July 29, 2009 at 2:49 pm

Why do you sound so much like UFC FAG, and why did you come around the same time he was getting exposed as a troll? Hmmm makes you wonder doesnt it? Fuck You Troll.

@Jay Smith

Fuck you too Jay, thats some stupid shit you said earlier.
Cuntalope- July 29, 2009 at 12:58 pm
lol 831 you are such a moron. While I agree Fedor hasn't consisently fought the best competition in these past few years but to say he's fought no one recently is a joke and shows your obviously know nothing about mma or haven't been following it for long.

Sylvia was ranked top 5 AT THE TIME, JULY 2008. Of course a year later he'd sink down in the dumps, get out of shape and lose to Ray Mercer but that is insignificant. Fedor AT THE TIME (can you read and understand that?) took on and beat a top 5 opponent.

Again Arlovski, conesus ranked number 2 heavyweight in the world before fighting Fedor. I don't care what has happened after at the time he was ranked number 2, Fedor was fighting top competition.

And once more Fedor was scheduled to fight the consesus ranked number 2 heavyweight Josh Barnett, but obviously that didn't happen. But still Fedor has been fighting top 5 competition but because it wasn't in the ufc and because morons like you like to judge the quality of Fedors opposition like 10 years after they fought Fedor makes them nobodies. You don't know shit 831, shut the fuck up.

Fedor is the number one heavyweight in the world, who is more deserving of a title fight for the heavyweight belt then the guy who everyone with at least half a brain (not you) considers the number one heavyweight. You can't be serious. Lets see the best fighting the best. You are clearly retarded 831, you clearly are not a fan of this sport if you think the number one heavyweight hasnt' already earned a title shot with everything he's done to earn being the number one heavyweight.
831 Son- July 29, 2009 at 10:58 am
Its all good I would still be pumped to see Fedor vs Brock soon. As long as Dana and that commie do some business.
Jay Smith- July 29, 2009 at 10:22 am
@ 831 Son
Oh, you weren't talkin to me. My bad again.
Smackdaddiest1- July 29, 2009 at 10:19 am
@831 Son
Goddamn, calm down Francis.

I certainly see your point bro, but Fedor's record speaks for itself. It wouldn't make a shit to me if he was 30-0 against the Seth Petruzellis of the world.

30-0 or 30-1 whichever one you chose to go with, is still an unbelievable record.

I will grant you that he hasn't fought anyone noteworthy recently. It would probably be in HIS best interests to get a tuneup fight before Brock, but I can't see it happening.
Jay Smith- July 29, 2009 at 10:18 am
@ 831 Son
P.S. I don't believe you can beat my ass either.
Jay Smith- July 29, 2009 at 10:16 am
@ 831 Son
The suburbs make me a little nervous dog.

And listen bro, its contradictory to say you know he's the best then, say he doesn't deserve a title shot. I did get a little douchy with the kadumel comment, thats my bad. I just don't think your opinion is on point on this issue.
831 Son- July 29, 2009 at 10:03 am
Im the type that will ram you off the side of the road then proceed to beat your ass.
The Truth- July 29, 2009 at 9:45 am
I love internet gangstas. They are the same kind that flick you off in traffic and then speed off.LOLLLL
The Truth- July 29, 2009 at 9:43 am
Fedor hasnt won a worthy fight since MMA has evolved. MMA had devoloped right past CroCop, Nogs, Couture, Arvloski, Sylvia etc etc They are has beens and Fedor has been beating up on those types. Carwin/Fedor is a 50-50 matchup as is Lesnar etc.

What have you done for me lately Fedor...nothing.
831 Son- July 29, 2009 at 9:14 am
Hey fucking faggots who are crying with a fucking apple up their ass, shut the fuck up morons. Of course I would like to see Fedor vs Brock asap but if you guys had any intillect of the sport or gave a shit in general, you would see that people have been fighting numerous opponents in order to get a title shot and they deserve it more than Fedor. Fedor in my opinion is the best but he needs to fight someone beforehand not just an automatic title shot. Fucking faggots shut the fuck up and stop sucking on fedor's nuts. Of course hes probably the best but I just think he would need a fight before the title shot. Funny how all you clowns cry when I say "Fedor does not deserve getting the title shot right away in respect to the other fighters." Wow queers.

Jay smith, cuntalope, killdozer, you guys are all pussies. You all would be taking a dirt nap if you came to my neck of the woods you girls.
Smackdaddiest1- July 29, 2009 at 7:51 am
Amen Cuntalope.

If Fedor wins, he was expected to win, If Brock wins, he shows that maybe Fedor wasn't all he was cracked up to be.

People said he would have trouble with Heath Herring-wrong.

They said, oh hell, Randy will tool him, he's a wrestler too-wrong.

Mir's got his number, done beat him once-wrong.

Not saying Brock will win, but I will say that his size will be hard to overcome.
Cuntalope- July 29, 2009 at 7:32 am
People like 831 are just fickle and can't be taken seriously. They always find something to complain about. Fedor is considered by everyone to be ranked the number one heavyweight, I personally think Brock would beat him but right now I don't dispute that Fedor is number one until Brock beats him. Why the fuck would the number one heavyweight not get an imediate title shot, why the fuck wouldn't you want to see Lesnar vs. Fedor asap. It's good business for the UFC and it's a great fight for the fans to be treated to. If you don't want to see this fight right for fucking now than just kill yourself, you're not a fan of mma. Lets see the best fight the best right fucking now, no fucking around to please morons who will complain whatever happens.
clutchy hopkins- July 29, 2009 at 7:12 am
"I just want to see the fight happen. If Fedor's really the man, let's find out. If Brock is the future of heavyweight mma, let's find out. "

EXACTLY why cant everyone have this fuckin mentality? its as simple as that. anyone can have their opinion of how the fight would go, but just be accepting of the fact it could go either way.
LoneWolf- July 29, 2009 at 6:36 am
I just JIMP......
KillDozer- July 29, 2009 at 6:35 am
Never mind Kadumel. He is a dirty cock sucking slut and a fakeass imposer. The Real Kadumel is gonna come and put this bitch in his place like he did before, just wait and see. That little BROCKTHECOCK nuthugger is gonna get owned again and then go cry to Bens that someone is using his little gay name. He is so butt tight because he watched Bruno 100 times and now it's his masturbation video.
Smackdaddiest1- July 29, 2009 at 6:07 am

You got it! Nobody's discounting Brock's size/wrestling ability. Fucking guy is a gorilla, there's no doubt. But Fedor's the kind of guy who will weather the storm and take him into the 4th or 5th round. If that happens, Brock will gas.

I wouldn't be absolutely shocked if Lesnar beat him though. If he can take him down and gnp him the way he did Mir, there's nothing the Emperor can do about it. I just kind of feel like Brock would be dumb enough to try and trade with Fedor for a couple of rounds and then he wouldn't have enough gas in the tank for a full-on gnp assault.
C-Bus Allstar- July 29, 2009 at 5:57 am
LOL it's amazing to me how fast the internet can change it's opinion of someone. Look, even though I'm not a fan of his management, I'm not blind to the fact that Fedor would make Lesner look stupid. And people who ARE blind to that fact should really re-watch the fight Fedor had with Kevin Randleman. Randleman was the same caliber wrestler that Lesner is, the only difference is, Lesner's a lot bigger. But Fedor got slammed ON HIS HEAD, and still came back to win. I wouldn't count the Last Emperor out of a win against Lesner.

Smackdaddiest1- July 29, 2009 at 5:52 am
Right on brother.....I am a fan of both Brock and Fedor. I just want to see the fight happen. If Fedor's really the man, let's find out. If Brock is the future of heavyweight mma, let's find out. Either way, this fight has to happen.

Randy hung with Brock pretty well until he caught that knee that started his trip down lights out lane. Do I think Fedor can do the same? I think if anyone can, Fedor can. I just want to see it happen. I really think Brock's true test will come when he faces someone who will take him past the 3rd round. Obviously Mir's not the guy, nor are Velasquez or Carwin.

Everyone throws out Kevin Randelman suplexing Fedor on his fuckin head, etc.....Fucker was on a juice and coke diet in Japan if you know what I mean. If Fedor can survive that wicked slam and still win the fight, he can hang with Brock.
Clyde- July 29, 2009 at 5:25 am
I'll believe it when I've watched Fedor's first fight in the UFC. Until that happens, I'll be sceptical. Hell, even if i see it, there's a chance it'll still be just a CGI trick made by George Lucas, looking to branch out from shitting all over Sci-fi geeks dreams into shitting on MMA fans dreams instead. The presence of JarJar binks jumping up next to joe silva after a stunning upset would probably give it away mind you.

While I do want to see Fedor win and more importantly brock loose, I think the idea of Fedor just walking through him is pretty far fetched. I don't think anyone's going to have an easy time of beating the guy. You're either going to have to floor him with the first punch/kick, or deal with the insane amount of strenght at brock's disposal. I can't imagine anyone just running through brock; he can be beat just as anyone can, I just don't think they'll be making light work of it.
Fight Fan- July 29, 2009 at 5:19 am
Don't understand some folks here. Some seem downright pissed that the Fedor/UFC impasse may be ending soon. It appears some genuinely liked the idea that Fedor would never get to fight in the UFC. This Goog is one of these guys...

I can't even comprehend how you would feel let down by DW, like he should have kept talkin shit on Fedor. Are you for real? How is it a surprise that these talks are progressing. He said right after the Lesnar/Mir fight that he was confident Fedor would eventually end up in the UFC. Now you're suprised DW is making good on that?

You guys and your hurt feelings and drama. F***ing queens.
