Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Hey Affliction, Fedor and His M-1 Crew Are Suing Ya’ll

(Fedor and his friends had such a good time that day, they vowed that every year, no matter what was going on in their lives, they’d come back here together and stare at this giant metal thing until it showed them their future.)

Somewhere on your list of things that you should never, ever do, maybe squeezed in between ‘Mix beer and ice cream’ and ‘Let your girlfriend move in with you just until she finds a place of her own,’ you might want to take a pen and scribble in, ‘Mess around with a company of crazy Russians.’  The boys at Affliction apparently made no such note, and now they’re getting sued over their decision to back out of “Affliction: Trilogy” and leave Fedor Emelianenko high and dry. 

According to documents obtained by MMA Payout, M-1 believes that Affliction could have, should have, and would have paid Brett Rogers to step in against Fedor had their deal to get back on the UFC’s good side not gone through.  But as we all know, that deal got done, Affliction cancelled the show, and Fedor was left wandering around the U.S. without anyone to punch.  According to M-1, that means “Affliction elected to serve its own financial interests at the expense of its partners.”

Regardless of who was right or wrong here, it’s a shame to see these two parties end up in a long legal battle.  Can’t we just settle out of court for some GSP t-shirts and a few of those $1,200 silver skull rosaries?

Sounds like they have a legitimate case. UFC nutthuggers, this is not a sign of M-1 being greedy, this is a sign of Affliction and UFC dealing shady, which is all good in business if you covered your tracks... we'll see if they did.

This just made my day. Hal is in his moms basement crying about not being able to post on CP.

Damn right it sees it as spam Hal. Its because you cant keep your fucking finger off the caps lock. As soon as the server sees your ninety consecutive words in caps, it puts it into the trash folder it belongs in.

Sue them emperor!! Now that they dont have an MMA promotion going, they are just worthless t-shirt faggots.

What's the big deal. It makes perfect sense. Why take the most lucrative offer you'll ever get, from the top MMA league in the world, when u can sign w/ companies that will eventually crumple (tho sometimes right before your fight) and then get bought out by said top MMA league.

It's simple logic, folks. I mean, wouldn't it be harder for Fedor to sue Affliction if he signed w/ the UFC? It's smart business this way.

Who is with me on Fedor and Hal both being douchebags of the day?
Of course Fedor suing ASSfliction is just good karma...much like Hal being pissed cause he is classified as a spambot...gotta love it.

Gehry designed the Pavilion, but the Bean is all Kapoor.

Totally unrelated to the post, but why is the CP Halloween contest hating on Arianny? That's just undemocratic.

parchy mcthirst- November 3, 2009 at 4:06 pm
the silver skull rosaries must be the magical garment that fedor donned to slay the arlovski vampire
Tool- November 3, 2009 at 4:05 pm
Now does everybody see why Dana and the Fertittas don't do co-promotion?

That appears to be Anish Kapoor's "Cloud Gate" sculpture in Chicago's Millenium Park.

I've never even been to Chicago! I'm just an art fag!

How much money can affliction actually have left anyway?

I heard there teaming up with Ed Hardy and John Goesling for there next line.
One Two- November 3, 2009 at 3:55 pm
I'm still bitter about them canceling that show i hope they sue the shit out of them. then pretending like you were gonna have it to get the UFC to buckle causing fedor and 30 of his entourage to fly to America for no reason fuck em if they had any balls they would of told the UFC to fuck themselves and have the fighters they signed backs.

on a side note With all the accusations of fedor being a t-1000 does that picture make anyone else nervous?

First to say that M-1 is a bunch of blood sucking leaches

Feydor needs new management as soon as possible, this is getting out of control
