    KNOCK KNOCK! LOL!
    Former PRIDE heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko is headed to New York City on Monday for a press conference to announce his new contract with M-1. There is also speculation that M-1 will announce the companies first event in the U.S. The event is rumored to take place in February, with Emelianenko headlining against a yet to be named opponent.
    Emelianenko is also expected to go over the details of his new contract at the press conference and reveal the mysterious billionaire backer for M-1. The press conference has been tentatively scheduled for Monday at 5:30 p.m. ET at the New York City offices of fashion designer Marc Ecko.

    Check back Monday evening for detailed coverage of the press conference in it's entirety.

    I recently read it was the owner of the Fox News Network. No substantial evidence though... but it's better to think about than Vince McMahon.

    i don't see his first opponent being Randy. Even t hough he backed out of his contract I am sure the UFC can stop him from fighting for other organizations.

    Barnett would be my logical guess on who his first opponent will be.

    Randy would be my hero if he just said "fuck it" and did it then dealt with the legal problems later.
