    Default UFC's offer to Fedor?

    Not sure how trustworthy this is, but hey:

    What M-1 meant by the UFC's"very generous offer"....

    By: Carmichael Dave

    Twitter.com/Carmichaeldave

    So we all know the deal with M-1 and what they are saying about co-promotion. I'm not here to say who's right and wrong in this deal, but I can tell you some of the specifics that were offered to Fedor.....

    - 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.

    I can tell you right now, the boys at ZUFFA will never, EVER agree to that. So if M-1 doesnt relent on that item alone, the Fedor to UFC talks are dead. Look for Team Emelianenko to turn to Strikeforce next. With co-promotions already in the books with Affliction, that shouldnt be a stopping point.

    I will have more comprehensive coverage on my show tonight at 9pm PST. You can stream live at Northern California's Sports Station KHTK - Homepage and call toll free at 1-800-920-1140. Twitter updates to the minute at twitter.com/carmichaeldave

    Fedor would be lucky to see even 1 million in profit from M-1. How do you turn down 30 mil? Business is business...

    Assuming that list of concessions is accurate, Fedor just does not want to fight in the UFC. Plain and simple, he wants no part of the cage or Brock Lesnar.

    Him and his team weren't negotiating in good faith, they were using the talks as a publicity stunt where his name would be in the media and the talk of the MMA world. He succeeded.

    Kudos to Mr. Dana White for the effort he did make. 5 million dollars per fight x 6 is incomprehensible in the MMA world. Gentlemen we have our answer as to why Fedor is not in the UFC.

    If this is legit, then I dont see this as a Fedor only issue, but I have to agree with PJers about M-1 being piece of shit negotiators.

    I don think its that he wants no part of Brock as he has specifically stated that he would fight him (it from his russian site) or the cage.

    Ridiculous as no one else will give them terms like this.

    I don't see why they turned this down. I don't blame the UFC here at all (since the contract terms were never mentioned - copromote is stupid as they are far from equals).
