Default M-1 newsflash and Fedor contract details

(don't know if this is 100% legit or official)
but here it is anyway...

My sources confirmů
Who is the new CEO of M-1?
None other than the largest super agent of American MMA fighters, Monte Cox.

What is Fedors contract worth?
5 fight deal for 12 million - 2 million a fight and a 2 million dollar bonus

What does Mark Cuban have to do with M-1?
Nothing so far, but he is working on it so expect something in the future.

What TV contracts are they working on?
HBO and Showtime. Nothing is signed yet but the UFC blew their chance.

Who will Fedor fight first?
Some unspecified PRIDE heavyweights. All remaining PRIDE fighters have been released from their contracts after the closing of the PRIDE offices in Japan.

More details to come as I get the green light for some info

Its amazing how opinions are changing about the UFC`s big swoop. The marquee matchups we wanted have really happened on time bar Liddell Rampage and the UFC havent been able to aquire the key player that mattered.

I think that hit the nail on the head. He kept ridiculing all other possible choices for Fedor. I really think that there was no way Fedor would sign with anyone else. So he wouldn't budge for a compromise.

I hope that Randy doesn't fight Fedor in the ring. I would favore Randy to beat Fedor in the cage, but I don't think that he beats Fedor in the ring. Randy is too old to fight that sort of fight.

That is probably a record for a MMA contract. Obviosuly , M-1 has some money to spend to get good fighters. If they get an HBO or Showtime deal, they are off to a huge start.

Yep, I wouldn't dare to favor Randy in a cage but ring definitely wipes out any strengths Randy might have over Fedor.

Wow. Monte has A LOT of fighters under contract too, including all of Miletich. As their Zuffa contracts go up he can keep shuffling in top talent.

Monte is a good guy, also a pretty knowledgeable boxing historian.
