Quoteworthy:

"PRIDE heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko has committed exclusively to the new ownership of M-1 Mix-Fight Championship, which has been purchased outright by an undisclosed America entertainment-related company .... The new M-1 will take more of a global stance, and Emelianenko will headline its inaugural event as early as January or February, possibly in the U.S...."

-- The latest development in the development-laden negotiation process between the Russian mixed martial arts heavyweight superstar and the UFC. Emelianenko seems to have settled on the organization (M-1) that was just recently owned and operated by his long-time manager, Vadim Finkelstein, instead of the UFC. Oh well.
