The fight was going to happen last summer in 2012. Lesnar agreed and Fedor refused to sign with UFC again.

Long story short, his experiment paid off

And no way would Cain had been given a title shot for beating Rothwell. He had 0 top 10 wins at the time. Nog would be much more likely
I'm sure whatever "Island" it was or whereever the fuck it was coincided with the video I posted. That was a pretty famous rant at the time where the negotiations went terribly wrong. I even remember at the time Dana saying he would sign him for sure and then the meeting went all wrong and you can here his rant.

Nog had a severe staph infection at the end of 2009. Thats why his original fight with Cain was postponed.

Dana should have co-promoted.

It's not like Strikeforce didn't co-promote with M-1.


It has been years and people are still talking about this fight.

Even co-promote, it probably would have been the biggest fight and UFC would have made a ridiculous amount of numbers.

The fight wouldn't of happened. Brock got sick, end of story. UFC would have signed Fedor for some ridiculous deal and couldn't even milk it for what they intended for
