MMANews.com has posted a translated excerpt of an interview that Ricardo Arona conducted with Brazilian MMA website and magazine, Tatame.
During the interview, Arona denies reports that he’s signed with M-1 for a potential fight with Fedor Emelianenko in December:
“I have not signed anything with M-1. I’ve heard rumors about it but no offer to fight against Fedor. To be honest I never heard of this event. I’ve gotten a few offers from the U.S., Canada and Japan, but I’m still weighing in my options before I sign. I’ll probably have a contract to fight in December.”
