UFC NEWS – M-1 Global President Calls Dana White "A Dog On Hay"

December 19, 2011 11:22 am by Pedro Carrasco

“We want to have 3 fights. One in Russia, one in Europe, and one in the USA. We really want to get a rematch with Werdum, but he is locked up in the prison called UFC, and because of that arranging for him to fight Fedor would be very difficult.

Dana White is like a dog on hay — he neither eats it himself, nor lets the others eat it. There are many other good fighters, whom we are considering. For instance, Josh Barnett. We need to wait for the Strikeforce HW’s tournament to end and then we can see how likely it is that we can arrange a fight.”

In a recent interview with Russian media outlet, championat.com, M-1 Global president, Vadim Finkelstein takes a stab at UFC president Dana White.

Fedor Emelianenko was at one time considered the best heavyweight fighter in the world; however after three consecutive losses on American soil, the Russian based fighter has last his entire luster.

The two feuding promotions (M-1 & UFC) have never been able to come to terms on the value of Emelianenko and outside of one fight between Dan Henderson and Fedor the two MMA companies have never worked together and probably never will.

Trying to find a credible opponent for Fedor outside of the UFC has got to be a trying task. They own 100% of the top 10 heavyweight fighters in the world and continue to take on any fighter with possibilities of greatness. But does it even matter? After Emelianenko’s third straight loss the majority of the MMA world has come to the conclusion that his time atop the sport is over.
