    M-1 Global may be ready for a "Breakthrough," but California isn't ready to host it.

    SI.com's Josh Gross reported on today's edition of his podcast "Gross Point Blank" that the previously announced "M-1 Breakthrough" event will not take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center as was originally planned.

    MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has since confirmed Gross' report, though a source close to the organization insists the event will still take place on Aug. 28, though a new location has yet to be determined.


    This is why they want co-promotion cause they can't even get their own shit in order.

    Door open for UFC, but Strikeforce – and broadcast television – just fine

    While it may have seemed the UFC and M-1 Global were within inches of finally bridging the gap between the two companies, in the end it seems the two parties are no closer to reaching an agreement than before.

    And while the world may still hold out hope for a compromise, Millen said M-1 Global executives are pleased with their decision to work with Strikeforce.

    "I think that teaming up with Strikeforce is a great opportunity for M-1 Global, for Strikeforce, and I think it's a great opportunity for MMA fans," Millen said. "Broadcast television, Showtime, CBS – it's just going to open up to a huge platform.

    "I keep saying this: Look what CBS did for 'Kimbo Slice.' Imagine what this platform could do for a true MMA fighter like Fedor. It will blow the sport up even more. I'm excited. I think it's great for the fans."

    And if mixed martial arts (and UFC) fans hope to see Emelianenko in the world's biggest MMA promotion, Millen suggests they use a bit of the same tactics that motivated White to substitute Vitor Belfort for Dan Henderson in the main event for September's UFC 103.

    "If the fans want to see a Brock Lesnar fight, hey, all they have to do is keep pressure on Dana," Millen said. "Do a co-promotion. They do it in boxing every day.

    "We feel we have the best fighter in the world. You feel you have the best fighter in the world. Let's throw them in the cage, and let's see who the best fighter is."


    This isn't boxing you dumb motherfucker. And does he not realize that all those shady fucking promoters are the ones that have pretty much ruined boxing. God I hate this guy
