One of the biggest questions everyone has about this whole Fedor thing is who the fuck is M-1 and where do they fit into all this? Are they a real promotional company or are they more smoke and mirrors than legit? I’m going to go ahead and admit that I have no idea yet and am trying to figure it out myself. They’ve promoted a shitload of small shows all over the world, but now it looks like they’re trying to take things to the next level. Not only is full on co-promotion a new stipulation for anyone who wants Fedor to fight in their organization, but they’ve got an event of their own coming up August 28th in LA featuring King Mo versus Don Frye.

Personally I’m not a big fan of the plan since we’ve already seen how fighters getting half works out in boxing. But for everyone talking about Fedor stepping over dollars to chase pennies, it seems to me like he’s stepping over being someone’s employee so he can be his own boss. Speaking as someone who’s done that himself, I can’t really fault him for doing the same.
