Fedor’s Manager Says Dana White Is Lying About Not Wanting Emelianenko In The UFC

“You need to know Dana. If he says he has no interest in signing Fedor, then in fact, he really wants to. He says one thing, and doing another. How can you not want a fighter who can bring millions? Any fight with Fedor could break all the rating records in the UFC… We are open for dialogue. It’s just that Dana White thinks that we will come to him, kneel down and say: “We are ready for any conditions to sign a contract.” Of course, this will never happen. Fedor deserves nothing but respect. But like I said, there’s still a high demand for Fedor. We are ready to have Fedor fighting in the UFC, it’s just that we need a normal offer. And the fact that White is always saying that offered us everything “on a silver platter” is a lie.”

Notorious M-1 Global front man, Vadim Finkelstein, responds through Lowkick about Dana Whites recent proclamation that they have absolutely zero interest in signing Fedor Emelianenko.

    He is right about Dana being two faced and changing his mind more than his underwear. However, Fink really fucked it up for Fedor.

    • andy says:

      Completely agree. Fink is a clown and I feel bad for Fedor man. The guy is being jerked around by his management and their really fucking things up for him. I think he needs to pull a Mousasi and gtfo of M1…

      • koolG says:

        fedor is to far gone he’s not his own man, he’ll stick with these clowns forever cuz he obviously has no balls or brains enough to see how much of a joke these people are making him out to be.

        • andy says:

          I’m with you 100% on that. I don’t think he’ll ever be what he used to but he’s letting M1 hold him back so much. But hey, he’s doing it to himself…

        • Ly-er says:

          Yah he’s management team sure sucks ass w/ the way they’re steering his career!

  2. the original steve says:

    who to believe some scumbag gang related russian or a scumbag american business man? personally at this point i believe dana fedor is beat turned down a great deal now strikeforce doesnt even want him

  3. Nick says:

    Man it must suck to be Fedor

    • Ronnon says:

      Yeah it sucks to be the greatest leyend in mma, king of Pride, beloved by all Russia, millionaire, amazing record with one of the best highlight reel in the sport…. yeah totally sucks

      • guamy says:

        +1 @ ronnon
        Fedor is a bad mother fuckah. people think because he lost 3 times hes all of a sudden a bum? get a clue you rookie mma fanboys. fedor would have stomped the ufc HW champ Randy at the time and has a damn good chance at killing JDS Today. no 1 wants to stand with FEDOR. believe that.

        • Bobastrazi says:


        • Tricky says:

          Had to LOL at that Bob. I was just thinking the same thing, then I scrolled down the page to reply myself and there’s your Hendo comment. LOLOLOL. Yup, no-one wants to stand with Hendo… except the last guy to KTFO out the guy…

        • Fuck Fedor says:

          fedor would lose to almost anyone from the ufc

        • MMARPG says:


      • Ronnon jerk says:

        I guess when your an average fighter fighting mostly no names you can have an amazing career. and when you are forced to fight the top level guys you get beat three times in a row.

        • anthony says:

          This comment shows that you have not been watching this sport very long. Fedor defeated 4 former ufc champions. Get a clue man. Also, if you were paying attention, 2 of those losses were bad stoppage. Dan Henderson is one of my favs but that fight was far from over!

        • Magic says:

          waaaa “bad stoppages” waaaaaa

          shut the fuck up he was out for the hendo fight and silva completely wrecked his shit making him look helpless

  4. ry tay says:

    we do know dana, we know him so well because he’s so up front about everything. if dana said he wont be in the ufc trust me he wont.

    • joe says:

      exact opposite from the truth. Dana is a hypocrite and a flip flopper. He’s basically the definition of an ass clown. IF the UFC can’t find another face to represent them in the spotlight then I feel sorry for Zuffa and the UFC.

  5. Fedor says:

    It’s true I suck.

  6. Shrit says:

    I wish Fedor and Brock could’ve fought once, since they’re both heavy weights who were on losing streaks though Fedor broke the streak

  7. slacker says:

    Fedor’s manager might be right. But even if it is just Dana posing for later negotiations, the fact is, with JDS, Overeem, Cain, and Werdum all in the HW division now, and Fedor slipping in his performance the last couple years, the UFC is not desperate at all to get Fedor. He might still have a draw because of his name, but personally, I would rather the UFC went after guys like Silva and Barnett to join the HW ranks. I like Fedor as a person, but he is going to have to eat a big slice of that humble pie now.

  8. Scotty says:

    Finkstein is stupid if he thinks Fedor shouldn’t kneel down to the UFC.. UFC offered him a title shot and a huge contract.. Fink is the one who said no cause the UFC wouldnt co promote with M-1 and why would they.. The UFC would never need M-1 nor do they need Fedor.. What has Fedor done since Pride days? Beat washed up old fighters.. And then lose to werdum and Antonio Silva! Haha Then take a fight with a LHW and gets KO’D! Fedor needs the UFC more than the UFC needs him! Fedor and Fink need to get their head out their asses cause this isn’t 8 years ago!

    • jonesy says:

      I WAS not really impressed with fedor anyways from pride…who were the bigest names he beat ?? mark coleman and big nog?? what the fuk did they amount to in ufc..he fought mostly freak shows in pride…fedor has always been just a very small fast hw…if he would cut weight like the rest these guys ghe could be title status agaain an be dangerous at 205

      • chris says:

        Ummm…..Big Nog beat Tim Sylvia to win the UFC Heavyweight Title. He beat some of the best including Tim Sylvia, Andre Arlovski, and Big Nog twice. Not saying that Fedor would fair well in the now stacked UFC Heavyweight division….but to say he’s beaten nothing but freakshows is an ignorant statement.

  9. Fedor Calling says:

    Hello? UFC? yeah, I’m 2-3 over last 5 fight. i think i want contract now.

    UFC Reply: hahaha No.

  10. HiImTye says:

    the UFC was willing to give him the deal of a lifetime and his management fucked it up for him, so, now he has to live with the shit he let his management give him. sucks for him but he should have known it would happen eventually

    • joe says:

      if they gave him the “deal of a lifetime” believe me he would have taken it. Dana White’s “Deal of a lifetime” is fighting for under $1million while earning $80 million for the UFC with no co-promotion of any kind. Sound like a fair deal to you? Get off Dana’s nuts, he’s a lying douche bag.

  11. I think there was a miscommunication between both parties. Someone got disrespected and that where the fans got hurt. Dana your a great man for doing what you did for mma but you are starting to act like the rest of the assholes. Fedor your great fighter for your time but that time has come and past. I do wish to see you fight one more fight but the last one for the fans. Isn’t that why Dana does this for a living. Giving the fans what they want. Set your difference to aside and do one great fucken card like BJ Penn vs. Nick Diaz or John Jones vs. Lyota Machida

  12. jbeamazing says:

    who is this fedor guy? lol I herd he had a good fight with Tim Sylvia 4 years ago didn’t he beat the pound for pound champ Bret Rodgers in a all out war?did’t he beat that big headed bum big foot oh wait he didn’t damn

  13. mma knowitall says:

    This was probably the final nail in the coffin of fedors UFC chances. He’s waaay past his prime and big draws anyways.

  14. Dog chapman says:

    Heyy pedroooo u tht whte guy in jail frm blood in blood out tres puto

  15. Fink to Fedor: You can leave, Feodor, but your brother Alexander… his soul is ours.

    *evil russian laugh*

    Fedor: NNNYYYYYYEEEEEEETTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. Fink: You can leave Feodor, but your brother Alexander…. His soul belongs to us now.

    *Evil Russian-Villain laugh*

    Fedor: NNNYYYYEEEEEEEETT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. lol same post twice, my bad.

  18. fedor is sHIT says:

    Fedor is done this is just a lame attempt to create interest in a fighter who is washed up, there’s no other interest in fedor he’s lost to bums he couldn’t even be a gatekeeper for the heavyweight division

    • Macc says:

      Yah that’s why verdum big foot and hendo are in the UFC now cuz they’re bums right? You my friend are a fucking idiot! Hell big foot next fight is against Roy Nelson but he is a bum right shut up you fake mma fan!

  19. dana black says:

    u guys ever watched a fedor fight? stop bitchin about a man who has achieved so manys things in life. this fedor guy or russian guy how u jerks call this man was very poor back in the days before he started a fighting career he and his family were very poor. he started because of money to be eable to feed his mom dad and brother. he didnt start fighting to be in the ufc. because there was no ufc. 1 decade later after fedor finished every opponent available at that time. the ufc starts getting bigger and any clown drinking beer gets a fan of it. u guys have no balls u can play counterstrike on your fuckin screens. to say bad things about a guy like fedor who never said that he is the best or anything fuckin else. he started fighting because his family was in need, thats the only reason. you can not compare a fresh 26 years old fedor to an old 35 36 years old fedor. its like saying fast food is very good for your cardio. stfu idiot donks! so stupid. i cant believe that there are so many clowns in the us just ridiculous!

    • jonesy says:

      your an idiot…when fedor startedd fighting his brother was in jaiil…so how did he start fighting to feed his mom dad and bro….u just a bitter angry idiot who thinks he knows everything about mma and fedor,,,,and hat u dont know like about when n why fedor started fighting u make up

  20. Yeah because coming out and publicly calling Dana a liar is sure to get Fedor into the Ufc.Fink is dumb as fuck.

  21. Jason says:

    Fedor can’t sell millions of PPVs. Casual buyers don’t know him and his recent performances have been horrible. Why sign a HW who got destroyed by a MW, a 2-2 UFC washout and the lOser of the Strikeforce GP?

  22. Mike McMack says:

    Fedor in the UFC is good for both sides since they would both be making a lot of money. I don’t think it’ll ever happen because the UFC and Fedor’s management don’t get along at all.

  23. Anti-Zuffa says:

    This is a little late, but damn near every one on here is a bandwagon jumping fool. If you watched Pride when it was live, then you know of Fedor. If you say anything else, then you didn’t, and/or you’re a liar. For all you Dana White dick riders, the UFC does in fact co-promote in EVERY country other than the US. M-1 demanded that the UFC use M-1 to co-promote the Netherlands, Russia and Japan. The UFC said no. You’ll notice that they went back to Japan recently. . .to a small venue. They have not went to the other countries. M-1 is bigger than the UFC in all 3 countries and have co-promoted mma events at stadiums where gate was over 100k people, compared to the 16-20k people that gate at UFC pay per views. The UFC has a longterm plan that doesn’t include M-1 taking any profit or doing shows that big. They have also talked about doing regional and world titles and rankings. The UFC pays most fighters in the few thousands. Usually even with a few big names and a deep fight card, the entire roster payout is well under a million dollars. Yet the UFC is making over 100mil each pay per view. Don’t be a bandwagon jumper. If you are going to be a fan of MMA, than be a fan, learn the sport and its history. . .don’t, what so ever. . .listen to Dana White.

    • bluebelt says:

      so what your saying is that we should listen to people on site who really have no inner knowledge of the inner workings of the ufc or any other mma organization and not listen to the president of the biggest mma organization in the world? yea thats really gonna happen. and the reason pride and affliction and all the other places you mention have died? they paid the people too much and didnt know how to promote for shit in the us.
