“Fedor will fight for the title first” – Dana White

If you thought last week was stuffed with an absurd amount of bangemite sticks, just wait for the aftermath that is this week. Right now, Fedor is sitting in a hotel room in Anaheim eating In and Out…probably watching reruns of Cheaters and Strikeforce is not the only organization who’s vying for the guy that has enough power to armbar Captain Planet. The UFC appears to be putting a bid to get The Last Emperor inside of an octagon and it seems like Fedor’s management is pretty open to it. We’ve all seen this story play out over the years, but this is the first time Fedor isnt signed to a promotion (other than M-1). Check out what Dana White had to say about all of this:

“My job is to put on the best fighters and to give you, the fans, the fights you want to see. I’ve been trying to get Fedor in the UFC. I want it because you want it. Believe me, I’m trying to make it happen. He’ll fight for the title first. What does he need, a tune-up fight or something? … To argue where this guy sits in the heavyweight division, we can argue that all day. Fedor has a ton of experience. The guy’s been around forever. But you can’t take anything away from Brock Lesnar … It’s an interesting fight. It’s a very good fight. Fedor’s got to come to a deal first. If Randy can go out there and cut that deal with Fedor, then Randy, get to work, buddy.” 

So maybe our Top Ten Reasons Why Brock vs. Fedor will never happen will be obsolete by the end of this week. Bummer, all that hard work for nothing. Time to get that Top Ten Reasons Bobby Lashley will defeat Galactus list up. [Source]
