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."

Maybe it's just me, but I have this gut feeling that Monson is about to pull an upset.

It's an M-1 card, so the undercard is total dookie. The co-main is a "lightweight championship" bout between Jose Figueroa vs. Daniel Weichel.

If that's the case then I'm not buying it. I was expecting (hoping) Baby Fedor, Chalangov, Semenov, etc.-caliber guys to resurface and debut on this card.

MentaL - i predict 15-30k buys.


Hopkins vs. Dawson only got 40K buys and that was with HBO promoting it.

I think 5-10K buys is more likely. Nobody but hardcore fans will even know this is on and even out of those, only the die-hard Fedor fans will buy it.

no way am i paying 30 bucks for that, or supporting M-1 with my money.

Id rather send Fedor the 30 bucks directly and an Ice Cream Cone and not watch the fight at all.

It will end up online the next day.

This is not a PPV quality event, despite Fedor being on it.

Sorry.

 Damn. It'd definitely be interesting if it were for free or even $9.99... but not $29.99.

Why you always have to talk shit about any organization not named ufc? If you like it, buy it, if you don't, just don't purchase it; there's no need to be so critical.

Wasting my money?

So why are you posting here if your not a fan of mma?
