Was Gegard Mousasi Actually Misled by M-1 Management?

Gegard-mousasiFighters Only Magazine has a report that has surfaced with a couple of comments from Gegard Mousasi regarding the rumors that he was, in fact, misled by M-1 management regarding his contract offer from the UFC. Most notably, Mousasi doesn't exactly kill the rumor at all:

    Gegard Mousasi has said he will honour his agreement with Strikeforce following recent reports that his management had misled him about the amount of money the UFC had offered him for his services.

    "I am fighting in Strikeforce now and Scott has always been honest to me," Mousasi told Fighters Only today. "I have a contract with Strikeforce and I am going to honor that."

    The DREAM double-champion then said that he did not wish to comment on allegations that his management had misled him about the value of the UFC offer.

I hate fueling the speculation animal, but if the rumors were completely out of this world... Mousasi would have likely stated that they were false. Instead, he has resorted to not commenting on the rumor.

Your right, that's hella lame of me. I was just in a hurry to post. My bad Apy, it'll never happen again!  My opinion of Apy Echteld was that he was an honest person who believed highly in Gegard. Very nice guy.

Does Moussasi have a promotional contract with M1 like Fedor? If not, he should leave them ASAP. Being an agent and a promoter is conflict of interest.
