UFC Burns Fedor and Crazy Russian Management


(‘Gotcha, motherfucker!’)

Okay, I take back what I said about April Fool’s pranks being lame.  The UFC – an organization not typically known for its sense of humor – has the best joke of the day so far, and it’s really as simple as this headline on UFC.com: “UFC Greenlights Construction of Russian Stadium.”

Get it?  Because Fedor Emelianenko’s management team allegedly wanted the UFC to build a stadium in Russia as part of their completely unrealistic contract demands?  And so now the UFC is openly mocking those demands simply by pretending to have agreed to them, thus pointing out that they are so ridiculous as to be comical all on their own, while at the same time pretty much eliminating any chance of reconciling with Fedor and bringing him to the UFC!  April Fool’s!

It is at this point that I have to wonder whether Fedor and the boys down at Crazy Russian Management Group, LLC (also an organization not known for its sense of humor) are going to get this joke.  In all the Yakov Smirnoff routines, I don’t recall anything about how April Fool’s Day is different in Soviet Russia, which is weird because he must have covered every other conceivable topic but that one.  


For my own personal amusement I’d like to imagine that Fedor sees this story himself when he goes to UFC.com today to buy a replica Octagon girl bikini top from the online store.  I can imagine his face lighting up at the news, because it means he can finally stop wearing that Affliction crap and the next time Jerry Millen breathes all over him in the back of a limo he won’t have to smile and be nice about it.  Then one of Fedor’s cousins who is familiar with American culture from that study abroad semester she spent at Ohio State tells him all about April Fool’s Day and also about Chlamydia (the two are inextricably connected in her mind), and he is suddenly filled with a crushing sadness.

Still, it’s like my father always said: a joke isn’t funny unless it really hurts someone.  Kudos, UFC.  I didn’t think you had it in you.

    MY hope is that fedor sees how ridiculous his demands were, fires his management, and hooks up with the UFC. is that too much to hope?

    Meh... Fedor will never fight in the UFC. He doesn't need them, they don't need him. The fact that Affliction is tanking has shown that he isn't a threat to them in the long term as a possible source of competition. His legacy is pretty much set, he doesn't need money and fighting in the UFC would just expose him to possible defeat. The UFC won't waste time chasing after one fighter when they have global expansion in mind. The only situation in which I see them persuing him any more would be if they wanted to make a very big, very fast push into Japan... which I think they have made clear that they do not.

    While I'm not a Fedor nut Hugger like some of the people around here, But can anyone else see this ending bad for Dana I mean say he's shopping at his local LaSenza picking out a new nighty for Chuck, Then In comes Fedor looking for a lacey little something for his hot pinko commie wife( and after TShirt guy finally explains to Fedor that it was a digg on him) And Fedor LOSES IT! and just obliterates the little Q-tip. Meh I guess the world would be ok without Dana in it? But I'm taking bets now that Dana still lasts longer then Timmay did!!

    It's true, Fedor would be in UFC if it wasn't for the capitalist mindset where business is more important than the product.

    Ha ha... You know that the real Yakov Smirnoff died homeless and alone in a coccoon of old newspapers and his own piss and shit, clutching a cheap bottle of Popov vodka? The moral of the story: In Russia, you're either Fedor, or you're a crazy, Hep C, drunk. And there's only one Fedor.

    "You know that the real Yakov Smirnoff died homeless and alone in a coccoon of old newspapers and his own piss and shit, clutching a cheap bottle of Popov vodka?" Yakov Smirnoff owns his own theatre in Branson Mo. and is also a college professor at Missouri State. The real "non-April Fools" story here is that if you want your own stadium then perhaps you should move to the US :D "America: What a country!"

    I'm kind of surprised that the UFC was this funny. I would have expected a video release of Dana shocking people with his beloved shock pen for April fool's.

    Wannabe mma purest always say the same shit “UFC don’t have top contenders”. How many people from Pride and other no named organizations got owned once they stepped into the octagon? And the few who didn’t became top contenders or title holders. Let Fedor keep his clean record I am sure he is making money off fighting washed up bums.

    I think you are forgetting that its Crazy Jews Management Group. C'mon, you cant take a crap without hearing about the chosen people, dont be shy now: they're crazy money loving hebes. Who you gonna trust with youre money? Sleazy wops and wiseguys wannabees or the people who love money more than life itself? Finkelkraut or Finkelberg knows the green. Right now Anal White is acting like the guy who asked the hot chick out and she turns him down so he calls her a lesbian. The homos here are the geeks snorting and chortling, just happy that theyre not teh ones being picked on. Now, all together in harmony.... "havard nagila havard,,, you give me money or Ill Madoff your azz!!"
