HOBOKEN, NJ (November 3, 2011) -- Integrated Sports Media, the pound-for-pound king of sports distribution in North America, announced today that it will distribute the November 20th "M-1 Global: Fedor vs. Monson" Mixed Martial Arts Pay-Per-View event, live Olympic Arena in Moscow, Russia

"Fedor vs. Monson," presented by M-1 Global, is being distributed in the United States by Integrated Sports Media for live viewing at 7:30 AM/ET - 4:30 AM/PT on both cable and satellite pay-per-view via iN Demand, DIRECTV, DISH Network and Avail-TVN, for a suggested retail price of only $29.95. Check listings for same-day replays.

"We're excited to be bringing Fedor's comeback to North American MMA fans," Integrated Sports Media president Doug Jacobs said. "Everybody wants to know what the great Fedor has left and Monson, who is an extremely dangerous veteran, figures to up to the challenge of fighting Emelianko in his backyard. If fans aren't able to watch live, we will be offering same day and night replays so nobody has to miss the action."

"Fedor has been very vocal about wanting to continue his fighting career," noted Evgeni Kogan, Director of Operations for M-1 Global, Europe's undisputed MMA leader in Europe. "Fedor vs. Monson is a classic that had been in crosshairs for years. All parties have come together to make this fight a reality."  

Universally recognized superstar Fedor Emelianenko (31-4, 8 KOs, 16 Submissions), arguably the greatest heavyweight in MMA history, is returning home to Russia to fight there for the first time in four years. The Russian combat sports icon is coming off of three straight losses in the United States to Dan Henderson, Antonio Silva and Fabricio Werdum.

"I cannot wait to compete again," an eager Fedor remarked. "Monson is a great athlete who is skilled in many areas. He is a very worthy opponent."

It's a LW bout, not LHW.I wouldn't say there are "good matches" on the undercard either. It's like if a UFC PPV had a co-main of Thiago Tavares vs. Paul Taylor.

You've only heard of prof X yet you can't even figure out that there's a reason he's lower down the card?Some good matches on that undercard and the LW title bout should be a cracker!

 The point is, UFC just had a free card in UK, the whole card was filled with bigger names than this card, and it was free, M-1 tries to get 30 bucks for this card with no one relevant on it.

Weichel and Taisumov are decent European LWs. They'd be strictly C-level in the UFC but by M-1 standards they're solid. I assume if they both win, M-1 will match them up next.I think Figueroa is an ATT guy, but his record is not good. He lost 3 in a row before signing with M-1.
