    Zuffa should be smart, even if Fedor could not bring the revenue to make profit, it would make basically every hardcore MMA fan respect UFC more, it would make this forum explode and it would avoid the no-one wins situation where Fedor would be the Bellator HW champion and basically becomes the Cyborg of men's HW. Yeah we respect you but come on... fight the UFC champions...

    Yep. Fedor fighting at bellator would suck. There can not be enough of these threads since Zuffa reads along.

    Zuffa. Sign Fedor.

    Ridiculous post lol

    You want UFC to lose money on a deal so some hardcores will 'respect' them more?

    You can bet your ass that shit ain't happening. Coker learned his lesson the hard way, he won't throw him crazy money like before. The ufc can afford to pay him a truckload of money even if he flops. Bellator doesnt have the cash to do that, yeah i know, Viacom is backing them up but they are rich for a reason, they won't be throwing crazy money at their experiment for 1 guy. Especially when they know that Coker tried to do that with Fedor in the past and it blew in his face.

    He will go to the ufc hands down, that's not even a question in my mind. Wsof would be retarded to risk paying so much money for a guy with such a massive mileage that can flop at any moment, i have a lot of respect for Ray Sefo but he's crazy when he says that they can afford Fedor. The ufc can afford to do that without risking too much, others don't. As simple as that.

    Oh you are dopey
    Read the post I replied to

    He said that UFC should sign him even if they lose $$$ so they can get hardcores on SD's respect lol

    I never mentioned anything about fedor not being worth it to UFC
    I have no idea how much he wants or what they are willing to pay

    But to say they should LOSE money to gain SD's respect is asinine

    Ok lol but seriously... the point i made is not that crazy... UFC has a LOT of money to spend, what i mean is that even if they would not profit of Fedor, just signing Fedor would also be a marketing thing to the hardcore MMA fan.

    Him signing to another org would be like Cyborg... a situation where you probably have the best fighter (Ronda), but there will always be doubt because of Cyborg.

    The same would go with Fedor. They might lose money to him, but they can claim they have the best, even possibly the GOAT. If he wins, more money for UFC, if he loses, UFC can claim their fighters are better than the perceived GOAT by many.

    Win-win for everybody. Why would you not agree?

    It is NOT a 'win" if UFC loses money lol
    If they sign Cyborg they make MILLIONS ... how can you compare that?

    Fedor as "GOAT" is 3+ years in the past
    3 UFC fighters beat him handily already
    You make it seem like he is 2009 Fedor

    I never said signing him is bad
    I have no idea WTF he or UFC wants/offering, but to sign him knowing they will lose money to placate some hardcore is incredibly bad for business.

    All good man
    I get being excited about Fedor, but you don't make a business decision based on emotion.
    That is why Lorenzo makes the deals & not Dana lol

    Fun back & forth

    Have a great night if you stay up longer


    PS ... it all comes down to how much Fedor wants IMO. If the demands are insane than no deal.

    Judging from these boards, most hardcore fans stream PPVs.

    They also seem to hate any almost every MMA fighter, fight, event, and promotion except Pride and a few of its top fighters. They are really a fun bunch.
