    ...Randy said he never wants to fight for Zuffa again
    ...Fedor doesn't care for Dana
    ...Dana said he didn't want Fedor anymore

    highly doubt it

    if he and Tito could see past their differences for the sake of business, i'm sure Dana and Feddy Ruxpin could too

    I dunno what to say, maybe the zuffa's can buy Dana a filter, so he can filter that garbage he calls a brain. I hope he does though, Fedor's style will mix well with UFC HW talent and the octagon.

    money talks

    one-fight contracts could be drawn up, which obviously would sidestep fedor's obligations to compete in sambo tourneys

    The fact that its onefight means that it would boil down to money, not restrictions.

    I want to see Fedor fight some REAL competition, which will be impossible in the weak UFC HW division. Seriously, other than Nog who Fedor already smashed 2x, who do they have for him?? The fights I want to see:
    Fedor vs. Randy (not in ufc)
    Fedor vs. Barnett (not in ufc)
    Fedor vs. AA (not in ufc)
    Fedor vs. Sylvia (not in ufc)
    Fedor vs. a motivated CroCop (not in ufc)

    I want to see a good, competitive Fedor vs Barnett SO BAD.

    I really doubt this will ever happen unless they get a huge chunk of cash for it. Barnett turned down their original fight and he hates to fight friends (which they are).

    None... but unlike the UFC, pretty much all of the others are willing to co-promote.

    All the others fall under the same banner. Cage Rage, EliteXC, Strikeforce, all the same. You probably won't see EliteXC and DREAM cross promoting.

    UFC is the only org that can afford the cost of the Fedor/Couture fight and still turn a profit

    Do you think Dream has the money to put on that fight? Fedor wants a min of 2 million a fight and Randy isn't going to take a penny less than Fedor.

    Whoever said Golden Boy/Affliction wants the fight is probably right. I'm willing to subscribe to that idear.
