Joost Raimond, the operations manager of Emelianenko's global promotion company M-1, invited the winner of the July 11 UFC heavyweight championship fight between Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir to attend the Emelianenko-Barnett bout, and pushed for the UFC to allow Emelianenko to fight that man as part of a one-fight contract on a card that could be fully promoted by UFC.
That's not the way the UFC operates, however.
"The fans can come out and push for this, and make it happen," Raimond said.
At least we'll be heard. Dana, obviously not the 1 fight deal, but could you pleaaase try to be more flexible in your contract negotiations. For the fans. Yourself included.
