fedor talk

Dana White has turned on the anti-Strikefore jets full bore. His act is predictable, lame, and totally effective. Like stabbing an unarmed nun.

M-1 is partially owned by Fedor Emilianenko. Why is it so hard to understand he wants it to succeed? His interests lie with himself, not in fighting what Dana White decides are the best heavyweights in the world. I personally applaud Fedor for trying for that brass ring. That's EXACTLY the kind of balls it took for Dana White to get where he coming up with an idea, pitching it to some rich guys, and riding the fuck out of it. Great, big, cast-iron balls.

Will it work? Strikeforce has a tiger by the tail...they'll not only need to manage events now, but manage press and public opinion, which is a much harder row to hoe. We'll see. If they can milk the three fights on Fedor's contract, they may end up in good shape. But of course, they could end up broke and Fedor-less, just like Affliction.
