    They tried to sign him, he laughed at their contract. He makes more fighting in Russia than what the UFC wants to pay him.

    The UFC can keep signing fat slob American heavyweights for 10k/10k and most fans won't know the difference. The UFC only wants to invest in talent if it's American or from maybe a few other nationalities.

    That's sad. He should be paid whatever he wants IMO. If they cared about making HW good again!

    He apparently rejected their offer.


    They are also paying peanuts compared to some of these overseas orgs.

    I'm confused. Isn't a "bogatyr" Russian by definition? Wouldn't a non-Russian bogatyr...be called something else to begin with?
