UFC President Dana White promised to give it his best to sign Fedor Emelianenko, providing him with an immediate title shot against current UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar. After failing to agree with Fedor’s Manager Vadim Finchelstein to a deal where M-1 Global would be able to co-promote their brand at UFC events, White began to bash Fedor just like the good old days.
These last few days, all we heard was White sort of respecting Fedor’s MMA career history. However, we all pretty much knew that the bashing would start all over again if a deal wouldn’t go through. After White heard that Fedor signed a multi-fight deal with Strikeforce, this is what he had to say:
“I’m in Abu Dhabi right now and my reaction is Fedor is a [expletive] joke. [He] turns down a huge deal [with the UFC] and the opportunity to face the best in the world to fight nobodies, for no money. Fedor is a [expletive]! I feel sorry for the real fight fans. I wanted to make the deal, but it takes two and it is VERY obvious Fedor doesn’t want to fight the best, and doesn’t give a (expletive) about the fans“
