Oh man, one cool thing about this sport is there is ALWAYS something going on. It’s almost like a soap opera at times. Fedor Emelianenko’s management company, M-1 released a statement on Tuesday claiming the long-talked about fight between Randy Couture and Fedor Emelianenko has now “lost its luster” due to Randy losing to Brock Lesnar at UFC 91.
Most people would agree with that. In fact, PRO MMA even agrees with that since we already have an article up about that very subject.
In an effort to stifle any bright ideas the UFC might have about labeling Brock Lesnar as the best heavyweight in the world, M-1 is issuing a challenge to have Brock Lesnar fight Fedor in a “superfight.” M-1 proposes that the UFC will try to say Lesnar is the number one heavyweight in the world much like they have tried to use a “marketing campaign” claiming Anderson Silva is the number one pound-for-pound fighter in the world.
