Loretta Hunt of The Fight Network is reporting that Fedor Emelianenko has agreed with sign with the fight promotion M-1.
Fedor has close ties to M-1 through his manager, Vadim Finkelstein, who, according to Hunt, is no longer M-1’s owner. Finkelstein has reportedly sold M-1 to an American-based entertainment company that plans to infuse the promotion with a large amount of capital.
Emelianenko, who is technically still the PRIDE heavyweight champion, is the promotion’s first major acquisition. The promotion has its sights on promoting shows globally and could hold a card that will feature Fedor as early as January or February.
