Report: Fedor leaves M-1 management

by Chris Palmquist | source:

As a disclaimer to this story, the M-1 Global website was hacked earlier this week and reported that Fedor had signed to fight Brock Lesnar in the UFC. So it could be true, or it could just be another hack, but the report is that Russian heavyweight legend Fedor Emeliaenenko has severed his relationship with M-1 Global:

Fedor Emelianenko the long time representative and ambassador from Russia has recently disbanded from MMA pioneers M-1 global. Fedor signed with M-1 global in 1998 and owns a 15% stake in ownership.

On multiple occasions, negotiations between the UFC and M-1 to bring Fedor to the UFC have failed, with the major sticking point being that M-1 wanted co-promotion. Does this now open the door to Fedor coming to the UFC? Probably not, but anything is possible.

I wish this were true but it's probably just a better hack job than the one earlier in the week.

If you think Fedor only beat 2nd rate fighters, or that Werdum and Bigfoot are 2nd rate you're clearly not to bright.

The funniest part about this is all of the people saying, "my top notch skills of deduction lead me to believe the site was hacked!" even though that was confirmed almost instantly.Common sense is now a rarity because people don't pay any attention to what's going on around them anymore lol

they had Fedor signing with the UFC on this site as well, I'd bet this was hacked again.

Who cares what Fedor is doing? The went from being the so-called baddest man on the planet by beating second rate fighters, to getting beat by second rate fighters with the exception Hendo.
