Latest on Fedor's Negotiations with the UFC

September 16, 2007

Zach Arnold of FightOpinion reports:

According to the M-1 office, Finkelstein and UFC negotiated terms of a contract that would allow the PRIDE Heavyweight champion to fight in the Octagon. M-1 claims that the negotiations were a success and that the parties agreed to what the terms of the UFC contract would be. However, M-1 claims that when UFC sent the contract to their office, the terms of the deal were ‘absolutely different’ than what had been negotiated and that management did not agree on what was stated in the contract. This is why, according to M-1, Fedor has not signed a contract with UFC.

One thing to keep in mind is that Fedor has a lot of handlers, both in Russia and in the United States. Reportedly this has significantly complicated the negotiations.
