This is a pretty big announcement that hasn’t gotten a lot of press because fans are currently sick of hearing about Fedor and the UFC’s issues with their contract negotiations. On that note though, according to the most recent Beatdown on Sherdog, it was said that the only issue with the contract is Fedor’s desire to continue his Sambo fighting. The UFC has always wanted their fighters to be exclusive to the organization, so it will be interesting to see what ends up happening in the next week which is when everyone believes a decision will be made.
Fedor will be attending UFC 75, but not for the reasons you may believe. He still isn’t signed, so the UFC won’t announce him but don’t be surprised if they show him on camera to start getting fans accustomed to his face. Instead, Emelianenko will be in attendance at the O2 arena to promote the Affliction clothing line.
In my opinion this all but assures that Fedor Emelianenko will be a UFC fighter very soon. Hopefully Dana has been jerking us around and is gonna announce Saturday that Fedor has indeed signed with UFC. Its defenitely a possibility!!
