Monte Cox admits everything is fucked

Right on the heels of shithead M1 executive #1 saying “We completely totally have a contract signed with Fedor”, we now have shithead M1 executive #2 saying “Okay, so we don’t really have a contract with Fedor”. Monte Cox has finally broken down and admitted the truth: that M-1 Global never actually inked a deal with Fedor and that everything is fucked between them and the Russians.

He made all these statements during Sherdog’s Savage Dog radio show on Monday. Of course, no one listens to that crap, so it was only on Wednesday after a news article was posted on the news site that anyone actually heard about any of this. Now Monte Cox claims he’s got the monkey off his back that was keeping him from doing his job and that everything will be A-OK:

“I am looking at June 14 to do our first show in Chicago,” Cox stated. “This will be a show, well, bigger than I am used to doing, somewhere along the lines of an [EliteXC] show or a WEC with a bigger headliner.”

With no allusions of supplanting the sport’s dominant player, Cox is ready to do what he has always done: make money.

“It won’t be the UFC,” he said. “We don’t have that kind of money to throw away. Now, without Fedor, I expect the show in Chicago to turn a profit.”

Sure, the show might turn a profit, but I have to wonder how much money these guys have burned in the 6 months they’ve spun their wheels. I imagine if the Chicago show is anything other than a roaring success, there’s going to be some pissed off investors in da house. Although honestly after seeing everything go on that’s gone on so far, I don’t know how they can be any angrier than they already are. I personally imagine beet red faces and steam flowing freely from ears. Yeah, that seems about right.

    “With no allusions…” I wonder if they ran into the same copyright trouble as Tony Wonder.

    Sorry, I haven’t been following M-1 that closely. In the 6 months that they’ve been “spinning their wheels”, have they accomplished anything significant in any capacity whatsoever? You know, besides what has already been pointed out, royally pissing off their backers. And 2 1/2 months left to put together a card? It’ll probably make this YAMMA clusterfuck look like a PRIDE GP in comparison.

    this and elitexc’s idiot card shuffling…mma sure looks stuffed full of assclownery today. at least the card last night was pretty good.

    First it was Pride, then Bodog, and now M-1. Everything Fedor touches turn into dust! Beware!

    “First it was Pride, then Bodog, and now M-1. Everything Fedor touches turn into dust! Beware!”

    Don’t forget about RINGS and Inoki Bom-Ba-Ya.

    They both contracted a terminal case of the Emelianenko and died a horrible death as well.
