Given that the KB match was a week or so after his UFC debut, he likely already was signed for it and the UFC allowed him to do it in order to get the name on their singapore card. I'd be surprised if they allowed this outside of matches like silva vs RJJ where they surely got a piece of the pie.

That.....and Dana's claim that M-1 wanted him to build an arena in Moscow.

M-1 really never had a leg to stand on when it demanded co-promotion status. They co-promoted the first 2 Affliction events, which did underwhelming PPV buys, tickets sold *and* overpaid the fighters.

but let's be clear, that was only 1 of many sticking points with Fedor, and probably a minor one. rumor has it UFC did acquiesce to allow Fedor to fight Sambo but they then got caught up in the main sticking point - Fink wanted to co promote.
Combat Sambo is MMA with a GI

Sambo is pure grappling.
