According to Aleksander Emelianenko, the brother of WAMMA Heavyweight Champion and former PRIDE Heavyweight Champion Fedor Emelianenko, Vadim Finkelchtein has been the source of trouble regarding
Fedor’s inability to come to terms with the UFC.
Finkelchtein is the President and co-owner of M-1 Global, the company that manages Fedor’s professional career. According to a new report at sports.ru, Aleksander states,
You can negotiate with the UFC. I know that they have sufficiently flexible contracts. And all this talk about the “strict” conditions of signing a contract with the UFC only come from Finkelchtein, who wants, through a contract with the UFC and Fedor to promote his own business.
