On Friday morning, PRO MMA (promma.info) received the following statement from M-1 Global’s Co-Owner and President Vadim Finkelchtein:
“There have been recent reports stating that talks between M-1 Global and the UFC regarding Fedor fighting in the UFC have ended. Like some of the other reports that have surfaced, this is incorrect.
“It is unfortunate that so much incorrect information has been leaked to the public. It is M-1’s preference not to negotiate in public and we are unsure why people claim that Fedor and M-1 turned down a six fight, $30 million contract to fight in the UFC when no such offer was ever made.
