    Please take the following with a grain of salt as nothing will be confirmed for certain until Monday's press conference in New York featuring Fedor Emelianenko and executives from M-1.

    According to sources close to M-1: -American MMA Super Agent Monte Cox will be the new CEO of M-1.

    -Fedor's contract is said to be a five fight deal worth 12 million dollars.
    -Mark Cuban is likely to be involved with M-1 at some point in the near future.
    -TV deals are being negotiated with HBO and possibly Showtime though nothing has been signed, it looks like the UFC may have missed their chance. -Fedor's opponent is still unnamed but will likely be a former PRIDE heavyweight. Check back soon. Well have more information as it comes down.

    hence why it's just a rumor. even if untrue (which i assume it is), it's still interesting :o

    I hope its only a rumor. If not then MMA is destined to the fate of pro boxing. Promoters and agents running shit and crossing over to other orgs. Huge conflict of interest. The only upside is the non exclusivity in boxing besides the pay to fighters. Its not out of the norm for champions to hold more than one orgs title without a unification or anything.

    Or its possible that he will quit being a promoter.

    Hell, even Dana quit doing it when he became the president of the UFC.

    No one listens to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Went to Maryland for orientation, meet my bosses, etc...

    My background check started today and I have to go take a physical and drug test Monday.

    Just got back, I start on the 29th for a 3 week training period where I learn how Ti02 is made and how to start collecting the data I need to do my job.

    You should stop using your lame blog site and get on LJ. I update mine pretty regularly.

    And I don't "holster" dicks.








    I caress them.
