Jerry Millen – Thank everyone for coming out on short notice. We’d rather be fighting but we’re here instead at this press conference.
He’s introducing everyone on the panel…
Vadim is up next
Vadim - not only the UFC but all companies. (it's hard to understand the translator)
Makes EA Sports Video Game announcement... says Fedor is heading the game.
Fedor - I'm very happy to be in the video game. Thank you for coming, we'll be happy to answer all your questions.
Asked about the future - " We are working on the options. We'll see... "
"We're exploring all options... we are not prepared to disclose anything today"
Fedor - "I have talked to Dana White on the phone yesterday"
"Our offer is simple... we have a champion, they have a champion, we offer to have a co-promotion. And we're ready to invest together and get the profit together"
"We do have a lot of negotiations and yes Strikeforce is one of them..”
Vadim - "Fedor is the face of M-1 Global..." - M-1 stresses it has promoted MMA all over the world. should fight in UFC under the M-1 banner
M-1 stresses that to do a deal with UFC, they want co-promotion. They think it's important for MMA to have competition, not UFC dominance.
M-1 Global says it plans to increase the number of MMA shows it promotes.
“We do want to work with the UFC, but we don’t want to wait, we want to move forward”
“We will only work on co-promotion deals”
Vadim – "Fedor and I are partners and we share the same interests. Money isn’t everything…. We want to develop MMA. The UFC won’t be able to control the whole world."
Fedor - "I completely trust Vadim and I'm very happy we work together"
Gegard Mousasi is talking now... happy about the strikeforce fight.
Jerry says Fedor will be fighting very soon.... stay tuned.
