Dana White's Fedor regret: No Brock fight

by Dann Stupp and John Morgan | source: mmajunkie.com

UFC president Dana White regrets he could never get Emelianenko booked for a fight with a certain ex-champion under the UFC banner.

"Obviously, I would have loved to make that fight with him and Brock at that point in time," White told MMAjunkie.com. "It would have been awesome. But it obviously didn't happen."

"I have nothing against Fedor whatsoever. He's definitely got some hardcore fans, man. I mean the guy can get knocked out four times in a row, and they still think he's the f------ greatest ever."

"I don't hate the guy. There's definitely no hate at all for Fedor. It was always his management. Anytime you ever heard me talk, it was about 'Vadummy' or the guys who managed his career.

"But I have nothing against Fedor."

Hey Dana, IF Fedor is done with M1 and a deal could be made would you still be interested in putting together a fight with Brock? I ask because I think there's still a good amount of interest amongst the fans. Thanks

Lesnar would put little Fedor on his back and pound him in to Bolivia... But, we don't get to see that fight do we? Because Fedor thought fighting Butterbean was more important.

 Fedor would ko Brock Lesnar in less than 2 minutes ....... Fedor throws bombs and he throws them fast and accurate which is Lesnars Cryptonite. Lesnar is done with real fighting and it's my guess we'll never see him in the cage again.

Guess we'll have to take your word for that, since Fedor decided to fight Tank Abbot on youtube instead. Or, whoever the nobody opponent was. Was is Kimbo in his backyard? Not worth remembering.

Does Dana ever tell the truth about anything?Always talking out of both sides of his mouth..."oh, I have nothing against Fedor" in one breath, in the other, " that guy can get knocked out four times in a row and his fans still think he's the greatest."Uh, he's never been knocked out four times, let alone four times in a row. Nice try with your usual bullshit UFC revisionist history, clown.

Just fucking sign Fedor and get this fight with Brock going. It will shatter all PPV records. I'll pay double for it, too.Brock via HH beat down.
