Audio: Fedor won’t be fighting on New Year’s Eve

I was a guest during the “Insider” segment on Tuesday’s edition of Fight Network Radio with Mauro Ranallo. You can hear the audio of the segment by clicking here.

During the segment I broke the news that Fedor Emelianenko will not be fighting in Japan on New Year’s Eve. According to M-1 Global CEO and President Monte Cox, the promotion was considering an opportunity for Fedor to fight but the timing simply wasn’t right.

I also followed up with Cox in regards to a previous statement that the promotion would be announcing several fighter sightings following their New York press conference several weeks back. According to Cox, the promotion wants to focus on securing a television deal before they start finalizing contracts with fighters.

There was also a lot of discussion about the IFL and Fight Network Radio producer John Pollock broke the news that IFL Battleground on Fox Sports World in Canada averaged just 200 viewers an hour.
