    ^^^exactly, Millen made a big (in my opinion stupid) statement, Dana's just calling him on it, nobody really thinks any of this goes towards serious negotiation (do they??)

    Dana get alot of critisizm for talking **** but Millen is one of the biggest douchebags around. I really cant stand that guy! I personally think that Finkelstein and Millen are the main reasons Fedors not in the UFC not Dana.

    I don't know, I tend to believe Dana when he says Millen wasn't part of the negotiations (or at least not a substantial part)

    The fact that Dana brings up Fedor every few months shows how bad he wants him, even though he plays it off. What a strange person.

    Anyway, let's get a Millan vs White. I'd pay to see THAT.

    Millen gave an interview where he talked about how much he'd like to fight Dana; Dana offered to fly him to Vegas at his own expense and give him 10K if he lasted a round with him. Millen declined.

    Was that the same interview where he claimed Dana wanted it to be a boxing match, and not an MMA fight, since he would "only hurt Millen in the boxing ring" but would have "killed him in the Octagon"?

    Ok back to Lesnar vs. Fedor, I envision it unfolding this way: Lesnar gets out of the hospital and ends up fighting Fedor for free. Fedor kicks the **** out of Lesnar and Dana and Lesnar both complain that he's still not completely healthy or back to 100% and that's why he got his ass handed to him.

As a fan I am dissapointed that we might never see Fedor in the UFC, but (also as a fan) I don't want Zuffa to get into bed with a company with such a poor international business-record as M-1.
    this. there is no fucking way anyone should be doing business with M-1, they are experts at tanking promotions.

    The thing is, Fedor needs UFC, but they dont need him. Fedor is gonna get older, get more busted, get weaker. UFC is going the other direction and is doing just fine without him.

    Fedor doesn't need the UFC, he's making as much or more money now and is fighting competition that is on par with what is available in the UFC at HW.

    Also, the tanking of those promotions was internal, not due to M-1.
