Finally, Things Are Getting Back to Normal Around Here

(Sometimes in life, all you want is somebody you can hate.)

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks, hasn’t it Potato Nation?  But now that Fedor Emelianenko has signed with Strikeforce, UFC president Dana White can stop courting him and resume bashing him in the same familiar terms.  And you already know exactly how this tune goes:

"I’m in Abu Dhabi right now and my reaction is Fedor is a [expletive] joke.  [He] turns down a huge deal and the opportunity to face the best in the world to fight nobodies, for no money. Fedor is [expletive]."

Comforting in a strange, unhealthy way, isn’t it?  Like reuniting with an ex-girlfriend who you never really liked all that much to begin with.  Sure she’s got problems, but at least you already know what they are.  And when she starts a fight over nothing on the ride home from dinner, it almost feels like home.


He Said, Crazy Russians Said: M-1 Denies Reports of $30 Million UFC Offer

Fedor Emelianenko M-1 Global
(Ice cream cones for everybody!)

Now that we’ve established that Fedor Emelianenko will probably never fight in the UFC as long as M-1 Global has anything to say about it, we can finally focus on arguing over what the UFC’s revised offer, which he wasn’t going to accept anyway because it didn’t involve co-promoting events with M-1 Global, actually looked like.  Thank God, right?  Contrary to reports that Fedor was offered $30 million for six fights in the UFC, M-1’s Joost Raimond says it was nowhere near that, telling Sherdog’s Loretta Hunt that “five-million (per fight) is way, way, way out of range. Half of that is even way out of range of what they offered.”
