Fedor Emelianenko and Vadim Finkelchtein: Total F*cking Retards

Fedor Emelianenko Vadim Finkelchtein MMA M-1
("Don’t worry, Fedor, there will be other offers. Say, would you like to open for a puppet show in Stockton this weekend?" Photo courtesy of 5oz.)

You gotta be kidding me with this shit. According to Carmichael Dave (via Bloody Elbow), here’s what the UFC was offering Fedor to sign with them:

- The UFC offered Fedor a 6 fight, 30 million dollar contract. That’s 5 mil a fight
- The UFC offered Fedor an immediate title shot
- Lesnar/Fedor would be the biggest PPV in MMA history (we assume), and the UFC offered M-1 Global a cut of the PPV on top of Fedor’s purse.
- Fedor was free to wear as many M-1 logoed items as he wished.
- The UFC also relented on allowing Fedor to compete in combat sambo.
Apparently, for good or bad, M-1 refuses to sign a deal unless the UFC agrees to co-promote.



In other words, the UFC would give him an unprecedented amount of money — much more than he’s worth, actually, in terms of his proven pay-per-view drawing power in the U.S. — and were actually going to bite the bullet on the combat sambo thing, which was a sticking point in their previous negotiations. On top of the millions they’d pay Fedor, M-1 Global would directly receive an additional windfall in the form of points on the PPV, and Fedor could come out wearing an M-1 jumpsuit, while Aleks and Kirill drape an M-1 banner over the cage. And the crazy Russians still wouldn’t accept, because they wanted their logo prominently featured in the broadcast, and they wanted to hear Mike Goldberg say their name.

That’s called "hardball," people. More accurately, it’s called "hardballing your way out of the best offer you will ever receive in your life." We can only hope that when Fedor flies back to Russia, his wife will clock the shit out of him with a rolling pin for leaving so much money on the table, and demand that he sign with the UFC. For God’s sake, he could buy Neverland with that kind of money. Think about it man: Your own amusement park, and only you decide who gets to ride the roller-coaster. Isn’t that what we’ve all dreamed about?

this is straight up business dude. No different then a salary cap in hockey. Fighters deserve more money if a company highly profits off of their performance.

Boxing promoters were corrupt - fighters still got paid - LARGE.

xlife again I must tell you...fuck off and die, you stupid piece of shit. nobody here wants to see MMA become corrupt like suckass boxing, go suck delafaggott's dick.

ha

De La Hoya/Mayweather fight - both fighters took come collectively over $70 million from one fight.

UFC 100 - the entire fight card was near a million combined with bonuses.


Maybe there is a pile of secret money being dished out that we dont know about.

In 2006 UFC PPV set a alltime record - $200+ million.

scam

ha you guys dont look at the big picture. tyson was making $20mil a fucking fight. GSP is not even near $1million. Pay per view generates hundreds of millions of dollars - UFC under pays LARGE.

Fedor is winning this fight - UFC has a stranglehold on all the fighters. If they want him then they are going to have to pay for him.

The way i see it - title holders/main event fighters shold be getting a percentage of the PPV hits or have a HUGE wage increase.

Fuck UFC - Zuffa INC are ripping off the fighters."

fuck you!
You are retard!
You must be Fedor come to spy on the hub, begone you russian troll turd.
Darkside- July 30, 2009 at 4:40 pm
cant we just admit that fedor is nothing more than a bleeding vagina? if he really wanted to fight the best, he would. and he won't. because he's scared, whether of tarnishing his legacy or getting the shit knocked out of him, who knows. but he's a fucking pussy. it's enough for me to wanna see even cock chestner's retarded ass beat him down. life must suck as a coward, eh fedor?

What a piece of work this Finkeldouche is...If I was DW, I'd have Brock Lesnar tag along just to call out Fedor for being the little pu$$y-a$$ b*tch (or b*tch-ass pu$$y) that he is in that press conference tomorrow. Then afterwards, for kicks, both of them have an ice cream cone for photo-ops


>>> biff, that's a GREAT IDEA! :)

Having Brock along to see all this bullshit going down will have to grate on his nerves and he might go all "DON FRYE" on Fedor, his manager, and Russia altogether....


He'd probably call Fedor a coward and a sissy for eating ice cream cones and wearing dorky-sweaters that look like they were from the 1950s.

You lost me. What does deride mean?
just some dong- July 30, 2009 at 1:41 pm
I don't think Fedor is afraid of the UFC's HW fighters - I think it's M-1 who's afraid. That's why they're trying to pull all this long-term cross-promotional stuff. It's not just with the UFC; this is their demand with Strikeforce as well. It's their sticking point because they KNOW that that nobody gives a sh!t about M-1 except for the fact that they apparently own Fedor, body and soul. So if their greatest (and basically only) asset goes to the UFC or Strikeforce, and is subsequently destroyed by Lesnar or whomever in his first fight, the whole Fedor mystique is shattered - and there goes M-1's meal ticket. It's a gamble that they're currently not willing to make, because when it comes down to it, anyone can be beaten at any time. We've seen that some guys have had serious problems adjusting to the cage, and if that were to happen to Fedor, and he were to go down in flames like Cro-Cop did (whose entire mystique was demolished upon stepping into the cage), then where does that leave M-1 in 2 years?
The Truth- July 30, 2009 at 1:21 pm
If I were Dana, Id do a 1 fight deal and let him fight Brock Lesnar. Even let M-1 split the profit. Id pay the camera guys and the commentators to completely ignore the M-1 logo, and then If BL beat the piss outta him, he would be useless to the world and out of a contract. Id skew numbers and pinch every penny out of them that I possible could in the deal.
JPfighter- July 30, 2009 at 12:59 pm
And by the way, props to CP for calling it like it is, with these fucking idiots, Fedor and Vadim. Well done.
JPfighter- July 30, 2009 at 12:58 pm
Can we really blame Fedor for this? I mean, what would you rather do? Sit around in geeky sweaters eating ice cream cones with a silly smirk on your face while clinging to a fabricated mystique...or, sign with the UFC and get completely destroyed by Brock Lesnar? Fedor fears the DeathClutch! Fedor and Vadim are both fucking pussies and his "legacy" will now die a slow death. Maybe Fedor can sign with a Japanese promotion and fight Barnett? That will give them about 15,000 PPV buys, and M-1 can slice that in half. Of course, half of zero is...well, you know...fucking zero. If Fedor is the best Heavyweight in the world, then that must mean that Frank Shamrock is the best Middleweight in the world. The joke of that comment is that Frank actually has faced better competition in recent years (Cung Le, for one) than Fedor has. Stay in motherfucking Russia, you douchebags.

@ Daddy_jeffy
I would never stoop so low as to deride your family. No class whatsoever.
Ninja- July 30, 2009 at 11:40 am
This is a strategic news leak by the UFC. It has created a wave of anti Fedor sentiment which is exactly what they need. This offer was never made. The sole purpose of it is to make it look like Fedor is the one that is not making the deal happen. The UFC can now say " We have given him more than enough and he still won't come and fight"

Then all the bandwagoners will join in and chant "USA USA Fedor is a pussy" It undermines him and makes him look like he is scared of fighting Brock Lesnar. That way the UFC can claim to have the best heavyweight fighter in the world without having Fedor step into the ring.

>>> ROFLMAO!!!! What kind of fantasy-world are YOU living in? BOXING is a corrupt piece of shit industry and comparing what happens in Boxing to what happens in a TOTALLY-DIFFERENT sport is just plain idiotic in your case....but then again, you live in a village so.....

Oh yes... MMA is totally-different lol. This isnt a fighting based sport earning money with PPV ?? oh wait, it is.
=====================================
Let's make it simple for simple minds.

First of all...as any other jobs being a fighter or a fight promoter is about one thing. MONEY.

Let's says GSP and A.Silva wants to fight together and make as much money as possible. What's the options ?? Getting a couple of millions from DW or self-promoting a PPV event that will draw like 25 millions or so ??

That's business is all about.
