M-1 Global's Jerry Millen Speaks On Strikeforce Signing Of Fedor Emelianenko

New, 11 comments

Look at what (Showtime and CBS) were able to do with a fighter like Kimbo Slice," Millen says. "Imagine what will happen once Fedor is exposed to the mainstream. Fedor could be 100,000 times bigger than a Kimbo Slice, because he's a true MMA fighter.  The audience here is huge," Millen says. "And UFC needs some competition. That's what M-1 Global and Strikeforce will bring them. Competition is good. 
This does not close the door on Fedor fighting Brock Lesnar," Millen says. "It just means now it would be Strikeforce, M-1 Global and UFC.

Good luck with that Jerry.

Fedor's happy, M-1 Global's happy, Strikeforce is happy, and fight fans should be completely happy

I'm not completely happy, but at least he'll be fighting I suppose.
