he gave Fedor a big offer, 6 fights, 30mil, Fedor turned it down because he wanted M-1 to get 50% of ppv revnue

Fedor is trying to help M-1 out so their company can grow. Whats wrong with that???

I think its funny that White says that Fedor is a punk and scared to fight in the UFC. Fedor is trying to help the company that helped him grow and become famous, I see nothing wrong with that. That is very nobel actually.

The problem with that is that it's a completely ridiculous request that no businessman with half a brain would agree to. Fedor and M-1 knew this. It was just an excuse for him to duck the UFC.

They had some nice Fighters out their. UFC is sorta WWE

:lol: Do you know anything about MMA?

it's ridiculous to expect UFC to co-promote with M1 when they are in competition with each other. How exactly does that make any sort of business sense.

It's not even that. M-1 is no competition at all for the UFC. The problem is giving half of everything to a garbage organization that provides nothing but one fighter that most MMA fans in America don't even know much about. No fighter is anywhere close to being worth that.

You get an insane offer to fight on the biggest stage, you turn it down because of an obviously impossible request, then you turn around and sign with Strikeforce to fight cans. Doesn't take a genius to put 2 and 2 together.

It's called Loyalty. Some people still stick by the people who made them. Not everyone is out to make the most money for themselves.

You would have a point if his "loyalty" was getting M-1 anywhere. Signing with the UFC would be the best thing for Fedor and M-1. You think Strikeforce is going to make M-1 into anything? He just doesn't want to fight in the UFC, plain and simple. And I'm fine with that, but the charade M-1 is putting on is insulting to all MMA fans.

White offered him a whole lot of money, he caved to almost every demand. He even would let M-1 be promoted on the guys shorts, gloves, towel and corner. That is a pretty big deal to allow your competitor to advertise on your dime. Fedor punked out. If he had wanted to fight Brock and be a champion, he could have made his agent sign the deal. He didn't, he punked out, and he can blame nobody but himself.

Some of you really think it would have been a good business deal to give up half the revenue for an entire company for one fighter? GTFOH.

Dana White's just an easy guy to hate.
