WSOF VP: ‘We Can Afford Fedor And Lesnar’

July 17, 2015 9:20 am by BJPENN.COM News


Bellator? UFC? What about the World Series of Fighting? Fedor Emelianenko and everyone is wondering where he will fight. There’s still the big chance he stays in Russia and fights for M-1 Global, but if he does come over to the states, which promotion will he go with?

Well, WSOF’s Vice President Ali Abdel-Aziz wants the world to know that they are completely capable of snagging Fedor and even Brock Lesnar if the wanted to:

“We can afford Fedor. We can afford Brock Lesnar. We can afford whatever we want to afford. But somebody has to move the needle, and I think Fedor definitely moves the needle. If M-1 is interested in doing stuff with us, I’m open to do it. I don’t know if any other promotion would do that, but we are open. I think NBC would entertain the idea and I think bringing in someone like that can really move the needle. He’s one of the guys that moves the needle, that we can write big checks for. It depends what Fedor wants to do. He can come here and be the biggest star, we can put him on NBC and NBC Sports. Or he can go to UFC or Bellator and be one of their guys.” via MMAFighting.
