President Of M-1 Global Says He's Tried To Get Fedor Emelianenko To Come Back
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.05.2013



In an interview with Combat Bear, M-1 Global President Vadim Finkelstein revealed he was still trying to convince Fedor Emeliananeko to come out of retirement. Here are highlights:

On if Fedor could come back: "I don't know anything about this, but I'd really want him to. I use every opportunity to convince Fedor to return. He still has more to show us."

On M-1 without Fedor: "We're doing great. We were never dependent on Fedor. Now we're doing the Grand Prix of heavyweights. The first round will be on April 9. in St. Petersburg and the semi-finals May 22 in Moscow, Crocus City –The largest business center in Russia. Our fighters are all very strong and they are very motivated for this tournament. We wanted to involve Sergey Kharitonov, but we have not yet come to an agreement."

On which fight he wanted to see Fedor in: "I don't think there could be a better fight than Brock Lesnar vs Fedor Emelianenko. Because Fedor was undefeated for 10 years, and then Lesnar was two years in the first ranking. Now he also lost, but still remains a legendary fighter."

On why Bellator is not an elite organization: "Because from Bellator the good fighters move to UFC, and those that remain are not better than M-1 fighters. Forexample Zayats and Volkov were not the best fighters in the M-1 organization, but in Bellator they are perhaps the best. UFC is the best organization, but our level is higher than Bellator. I don't understand when he competes in America in low-level organizations that makes him much cooler than here in Russia. I just don't understand it."
