MMA Quick Quote: Fedor officially a free agent ... again

fedor"The group that formed M-1 Global is still together and we're going to remain together and put on an MMA event. It won't be under the name M-1 Global because that is definitely associated with Emelianenko Fedor and the Russians, and we've come to an agreement that we're going to part ways.... We have different philosophies. It's just the way that it is. For me, I'm not as concerned about all the glitz and the glamour of the show; I just want to have good fights and I want to make money. That was my goal."

-- Monte Cox -- President and CEO of M-1 Global -- confirms that Fedor Emelianenko is now free to sign on with another MMA promotion if he desires in a interview. The Russian and American sides never saw eye-to-eye, and as a result, Fedor never competed under the M-1 Global banner. Most recently it was reported that ProElite offered Fedor a four-fight, incentive-laden contract; however, no decision has been made on his next home. Naturally, reports are indicating that his management team is also speaking with the UFC, as well as Japanese organizations overseas. Stay tuned.
