It’s Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada, so posting is gonna be light until Monday night. But don’t worry about me abandoning you completely … I’ve done a bunch of blogging ahead of time to take care of you while I’m out getting stuffed on turkey. Of course, this always brings about the danger that what I’m writing will be hopelessly out of date by the time it shows up on the site, so cut me some slack if that’s the case. For fuck’s sake, the fact that some of you come here for factual information is kinda scary. Don’t do it. Seriously.
First on the list of bogus stories that may or may not be true, TAGG radio reported yesterday that Fedor has signed with Russian company M-1 for the price of 10 million dollars. First off, this is TAGG talking, and they have the reliability of a coin-toss when it comes to shit like this. Next, you might recognize M-1 as being the promotion company Fedor’s managers own. Third, the fact that M-1 ‘owns’ Fedor means paying 10 million for Fedor is like me paying myself a billion dollars for this site. Yay, I’m rich. Oh wait, no I’m not.
With no other alternatives looking solid at the moment, I don’t doubt Fedor and his managers may be planning their own show for him to fight in. After all, the Bodog show was an M-1 show in every way but the actual name. This is also a good way to say ‘We’re in no rush and we don’t need you” to the UFC. So if this is true, it’s good news: we get to see Fedor fight again soon, and it’s not like this ‘deal’ with M-1 is going to affect the UFC’s ability to sign Fedor.
