Fedor return on hold as M-1 Global hit new snag over deal with Strikeforce

Once again M-1 Global have haulted Fedor Emelianenko from competing saying that “M-1 wasn’t promoted that much” at the last event.

Speaking via Yahoo!Sports.com, M-1 Global spokesman, Eugene Kogan said:

“The way the show was promoted, that was an issue to us, but we don’t have an issue with Strikeforce over it. M-1 isn’t a management company for Fedor Emelianenko. We are a fight promotion… But the media didn’t feature the M-1 name… Specifically, it wasn’t Strikeforce’s fault. They honored their agreement. The way the media perceived the event was it was Strikeforce. M-1 wasn’t promoted that much. That was an issue with us.”

On Fedor Emelianenko’s next fight, Kogan said:

“We’re almost there. Once we get that part out of the way, then we’ll decide on an opponent and a date. No fight is scheduled.”
