They don't have anybody for him. This might hurt Fedors bargaining power a little.. But not really, because Fesor will make the UFC a lot of money and get people watching in huge numbers, that's his bargaining power. Hopefully Fedor is willing to inderstand he isn't quite what he was, so makes it not too impossible for him to be brought in the UFC.
Simply put he is way to expensive and we have no fights for him.
I wouldn't say they have no fights for him. Fedor vs Kimbo, Fedor vs Lashley, Fedor vs Kongo. They aren't competitive fights, but they are bigger fights than anything anywhere else.
I think Coker wants to see Fedor's worth and what his drawing power is in today's economy. He probably felt burned or used in his previous deal, he wants to see how Fedor fairs in another promotion. Probably will come scoop him up if Fedor is still the draw he use to be.
I was thinking the same, previous deal probably left him with a bad taste? considering M1 was involved, but this time around I think Fedor is free of M1. Lets hope the UFC makes it happen at least sign him to a 1 fight deal.
Those fights would e a travesty and shouldn't even be talked about. That would be short term bump for complete desecration of the sport. The UFC has the appropriate fights for Fedor, I'm glad Coker knows it, because eveybody else with a brain does.
You're reaching at best with those fights.
I don't think Fedor would even waste the time getting on a plane for those fights.
The reality is its all about money. With PPV points Bellator has no way of compensating Fedor outside of just paying him way more than they could ever get out of him. Fedor is bad business for Bellator as is any top UFC star. They simply don't have the revenue to support those kind of stars.
FREDDY is Zuffa bound. Anyone who thinks otherwise is delusional. He probably is already signed to them.
Bellator isn't going to pay him $2-4m to fight on Spike. Makes no sense for them and they would never make a return on his fights.
Bigger than anything ...except the ufc. Kimbo is only "money" fight outside for him and rest are all the same.
Also, it will be next to impossible for Bellator to "scoop him up" if FEDOR is a big draw upon his return.
I hope your right, but Fedor and UFC have never gone good together.
We really don't know that..
Also, Fedor v Kimbo is a draw in the same way Fesor v Jose Canseco would be a draw.. Please stop pretending that's some kin of reasonable option. It's embarassing. Kimbo isn't that fkn famous, tbh. At all.
Those fights are Fedor vs Zulu- and Fedor vs Yuji Nagata-level fights. Absolute jokes. He might as well stay in Russia and fight nobodies for M-1 if that's the best on offer.
Great news for us, the fans.
So much for Viacom money.
I wonder if they have the resources to make even 1 bid on him?
Well it looks like it's a matter of days - if not hours - before the anouncement of Fedor signing with UFC is made. I can't imagine Coker saying something like this if it wasn't official, unless of course he's trying to swerve us.
fixed that for you
Bellator hasn't "done it already with Fedor". I guess Coker is saying he got taken to the cleaners by Fedor and M1 in the past and he's bitter or wary and/or he doesn't have the money to bid for him.
I guess that means he thinks Bellator will be able to afford him if he gets cut from the UFC.
