Dana Says He’s Going To Sign Fedor, And Brock Wants To Fight Him

Fedor Emelianenko & Brock Lesnar

“This whole Fedor thing has been going on and on and on. I keep saying this and that about him and he keeps waiting. Eventually, Fedor’s going to be here. I want Fedor. I want him to come to the UFC and everything else. [Lesnar] just became the heavyweight champion. We’ll end up getting that deal done. And then we’ll do Brock vs. Fedor, and it’ll be a huge fight.”

—Dana White, at the UFC 100 post-fight press conference, declaring (once again) that he’s going to sign Fedor Emelianenko to fight in the UFC

Also, during the ESPN MMA Live post-fight show, Brock Lesnar said he’d like to fight Fedor next.

If Fedor gets past Barnett, Fedor vs. Brock is the biggest fight that can be made in the heavyweight division and probably even the sport. Will it happen though? I’ll believe it when I see it, but hell yeah, I hope they find a way to make it happen.
