    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Fedor laying down the Pride belt uncontested?

    from Crocop post fight interview on the official crocop site http://www.mirko-crocop.com/index.php?id=4&solo=21:
    Slaven: So, what's going on with a title fight?
    Mirko: Only one thing is for sure - I'll fight for a title in June. I won't fight until June, I'll take some time to relax and then I'll resume my trainings.

    Slaven: It seems Fedor isn't defending his title?
    Mirko: I can't understand why he keeps ducking me. I don't have a personal issue with Fedor, I respect him for he is a great fighter and a champion. This is the second time that he's faced with my challenge and he's not willing to accept it. I earned my chance to fight for the title and I will fight.

    Slaven: So you could be fighting against Nogueira again?
    Mirko: It's possible. It's perfectly clear that PRIDE will take the belt from Fedor if he's not going to defend it. I would prefer getting the belt from the hands of the champion, I was really looking forward to fight vs Fedor.

    mmm... Fedor doesnt seem like the kind of person who backs down from a fight. especially from this one, the only time I have seen him angry was when Mirko fucked up his brother.

    Yeah, I always thought Fedor was the cold blooded killer here... he can't really be afraid of Mirko can he?

    No this mess is DSE's fault. They are refusing to give Fedor the amount of money a champion deserves and until that issue is solved there Fedor will not sign a contract with Pride and there will be no Championship fight.

    No-one is ducking anybody. :llorar:

    It really looks like Pride is trying to force him into taking a lesser amount of money by making him to appear to choose between losing face/money and being unable to defend his earned belt.

    Really a bad way to go, IMHO. That is unless this is all a ploy to build hype (taking a playbook from over-orchestrated american male soap operas). It really just seems to show how little little respect they have for Fedor, regardless of how good a fighter he is (no idea why).

    Yeah I figured it wasn't a decision made by Fedor himself.

    I think that sucks if Pride is trying to undercut Fedor, he's a fantastic fighter and needs to be respected as such.

    It's going to get settled. It's not like any other organization is going to match whatever bid PRIDE has. It's just about who can hold out the longest.
    I pointed at him [the panhandler], bringing my rear hand up in a subtle approximation of the double Wu Sau guard that is the default hand position in Wing Chun Kung Fu.

    "Step away," I hissed.

    K1 Romanex might be able to offer the same amount of money, but not the same quality of opponents. Fedor has been hard bargaining and DSE is not liking it very much. Word is they are still mad about him fighting for someone else after he came back from injury before taking on Nog. They better get this done, Fedor v Cro Cop MUST happen!

    Yeah, but Fedor is probably worth a lot more to PRIDE than K1. That's why nobody will match PRIDE's bid.

    I hope you are right. The Pride HW division is really starting to get very interesting. Fedor needs to stay.
