    I tired of seeing so much man hugging in the cage. Getting back to the craziness of Pride will be :coold: Maybe CroCop will go over to M-1 so he can start throwing bombs in the ring again, instead of worrying about getting owned in the cage :rofl:

    :werd: All that greco-roman bear hugging bullshit is just a scheme for dana white to allow his fights to run longer than need be so the average ticketholder layperson doesn't complain about quick KO fights that last only a few seconds. But above all, I'm sick of hearing Goldberg's shitty commentating and Bruce Buffer's goddamn annoying voice.

    But back on topic, I'm excited for M1. I hope to see a good majority of ex-Pride fighters join this fight organization. :coold:

    Cage Fighting Championships (CFC) Spokesperson Crawford Grimsley announced today, “The CFC will put up a $3,000,000 purse to bring the Couture vs Emelianenko fight to Pay-Per-View. $1,000,000 will be guaranteed to each fighter while the winner takes home an additional cool million, making this the largest single purse for any one MMA fight.”

    this true :dunno:

    Would you fight Randy Couture if given the chance?

    Yes, I want to fight Randy. He is the UFC Champion regardless of his resignation.– he is the second best fighter in the world (laughing). No, I have a great deal of respect for Randy. He is a great champion and a great ambassador for the sport. The fans deserve to see this fight and to not wait years for it to happen. I see no reason why I shouldn’t be able to fight Randy by the end of 2008. It is good for the fans, good for the sport, and good for the fighters.

    I looked up Sibling Entertainment Group and they only have a Market Cap of $16.34 million. That means it would only cost Zuffa a little over $8 million to become a controlling shareholder. If I were Zuffa's CFO, I'd be getting out the checkbook. I hope Brian Patton knows how to leverage up M-1 in a hurry!

    Still, if the UFC wants Fedor, they can essentially have his contract for $8mm.

    Even better then,

    1) Spend $8mm and get Fedor Contract
    2) Sign Randy to M-1 to Fight Fedor
    3) Cash in on biggest fight in MMA history
    4) Sell off assets of Sibling Entertainment Group and M-1

    I'd do it if I had $8mm, it looks like an easy profit making transaction
