    according to Jason Coles(mmasun) and others on twitter.

    I wonder if they'd consider signing a big name Russian like Arlvovski. Khabib and Rustam would likely be on the card and maybe the debut of Adlan Amagov and Adam Khaliev.

    Cue fedor rumours, and the ensuing disappointment when it doesn't happen

    AA isn't really a big star in Russia and isn't Russian.

    UFC is the pinnacle of MMA. If your a fan of MMA and live in Russia you know who the best guys are in the UFC and chances are very high you follow the UFC. Maybe they bring in a few Russian fighters to round out the card but they aren't going after any big names that is for sure (ie:Fedor or anything crazy like that).

    They gonna need some Russians in UFC then, for now there is only dagestanians in UFC, nothing bad about that i just dont think that they are marketable enought in Russia.

    Unless UFC is going to Mahachkala :wink:

    Everyone saying Arlovski isn't Russian, should understand that he considers himself Russian, and was born in the USSR. The part he was born in was only declared as Belarus in 1990.

    Once more, MMA fans will find themselves embroiled in a debate about ethnicity vs nationality.

    When he said that he was mad because Fedor and Sergei were saying he wasn't a "real" Russian. That's what he was responding to.

    Ready for Andrei Koreshkov to finish walking through Bellator so he can hopefully come over to Zuffa like Lombard and [hopefully] Alvarez.
