Two interesting reads from the always informative MMA Junkie website.Firstly,

Tim Sylvia is hinting that after his contract is up he may move to M1. Tim's manager Monte Cox runs the show at M1. Tim's beef appears to be that Brock's take home from his last fight compared to his was much less. Brock took home $250, 000 vs. Tim's $100, 000.

Well, I must say that Tim has a point here. I really can't understand how Brock is making that kind of cash. Brock is an unproven commodity however I was certainly excited to watch his fight, although short. If Tim moves over to M1 I am sure that M1 would give him a nice raise, they need more talent. I say do it Tim, this way I don't have to suffer through your fights any longer. Your not the most exciting fighter in the UFC.

THEN I found this .......from another site.....
Former UFC champion Tim Sylvia has posted yet another message board comment, this time clearing up rumors that circulated after his last message.

Sylvia wrote:

"well let me just start off by saying people r f***ed up by saying that i want to leave the ufc. I dont its my home and i would love to be there for the rest of my carear. Second I didnt say i wanted or even was thinking about m1 u guys (forum users) asked about it and I told u my manager runs it thats it, so please dont take shit out of context. Some of u people are going to get me in trouble with the ufc."

the big news from Fedor. Fedor apparently sent an email to Mr. White and cc'ed MMA Junkie.

It reads(roughly translated):

Numerous times have I read mister White’s statements on Internet concerning myself. In my opinion, allowing yourself to say those things is not a sign of a gentleman or a grown man at all! If he candidly wants to prove himself right then let my fight with Randy happen or let me face the reigning UFC champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. In the future I wouldn’t want to hear those statements in my address ever again and I won’t tolerate that.

My last fight in Japan proved that I’m ready to fight anybody with any height advantage, skillset or experience. I have fought and still wish to fight the best athletes. The Randy fight is my goal number one right now, he’s a great fighter and this is a very unfortunate situation when too strict and one-sided UFC contracts don’t let this fight happen.

The whole world is eager to see me fight your champions, people don’t want to listen to your press-conferences. I’m signed with M-1 Global and this promotion is ready to organize such fights under our banner or in co-promoted events.

I probably would have left out the part about his last fight in Japan however hats off to Fedor. Fedor is going to piss off Dana White which is great. Dana be a man and agree to just one fight with M1. Long ago you attempted the same with Pride and you were going to allow a fight with Chuck and Wandy. Lets do the same with M1 and Fedor. Let Cantoure go Fedor. Fedor will kick some Can.
