UFC President Dana White continues to pursue two top MMA fighters who currently fight for the Strikeforce promotion, Fedor Emelianenko and Gegard Mousasi. There were rumors on different mixed martial arts websites stating that the UFC and M-1 Global were in negotiations once again in order to sign up these two top contenders. However, M-1 Global President Vadim Finkelstein denies talks with the UFC and instead he states that he is satisfied with the partnership they have with Strikeforce.
From Vadim Finkelstein:
“Today I heard the rumors of me allegedly stating on my twitter account that we are negotiating with the UFC. I want to state that there are no talks with the UFC whatsoever. Our partner in the USA is STRIKEFORCE, we are happy to cooperate with STRIKEFORCE. Fedor (Emelianenko) and Gegard (Mousasi) fight there and they are quite happy with the conditions and how they are treated with respect there. Finally, I don’t have any account on Twitter. The account that ignited the rumors is false. Our attorneys are already aware of the situation and shortly this fake account will be deleted.”
