    What a stupid idea. How about m-1 use all the money they are investing into this and sign some good fighters so they dont have to go down this road. Surely fedor would rather fight some top hw fighters to solidify his place at the top. I think this promotion will ruin his career. He should just go to america with all the best talent.

    I know I am not the only one that would watch it. No different than the ufc giving title shots to the tuf winners.

    it might be good, i hope thats not his only fight plan for the year if its just one fight thats fine but he needs to face some top comp soon.luke who should he fight in the ufc the only ones thet make sense are randy aa and tim and who knows if those three will be still in the ufc soon the only other one is nog who he already beat.

    Since it doesn't say when this will take place, Randy, A.A., and Tim could all be part of the 16 heavy weights. Boy Dana would Shit!

    Well Fedor is the top dog right now and maybe Randy is his only competion, but what the heck this show would be awesome to watch, sign me up. I'm glad M-1 is coming up with some good ideas to kick the UFC's ass since they want to control the whole world of MMA.


    February 12, 2008 at 9:28 am

    I like the idea, it gets exposure and young fighters to audition or whatever they have to do…I dont think they'll obviously be able to fight Fedor every season so each new season should be the belt holder or ranked fighter in a different weight class

    The reason they won't shoot this in the U.S. is because the commision would never approve this. First off the only reason Ultimate Fighter got approved is because the whole top ufc staff worked for the Las Vegas Athletic Commission. Fertitta, the owner of the ufc was a commissioner, Kirk Hendrix was the attorney general for the commission and Mark Ratner was the Athletic Commission director. Now guess who is the new director for the commission. It is Keith Keiser who replaced Kirk Hendrix the deputy attorney general and now replaced mark ratner the ex athletic commission director.

    By law any pro fight has to have 28 rounds of fighting or it won't be approved. Also they are suppose inform who the winners are the day of. Why do you think there is no amateur mma in vegas. So no one else could ever do a show like this. When I questioned Keith Keiser about this he said that the commission gave them a special permit and that Ultimate Fighter was an exhibition.

    Ultimate fighter saved the pay per view ufc because of all the free advertisement. Have you ever wondered why no one else has done a similar show in the state. This is a great idea what M-1 is doing. Very smart move.

    Jesus Christ…… I see my posting days on Cagetoday coming to an end very soon.


    February 12, 2008 at 10:06 am

    Joe, for what reason? ur one of the few people who actually knows what your talking about on this site

    Kazja if all that is true then why is fox going to have their own mma reality show? Last i heard the ufc has not bought the fox network.

  11. kazja

    February 12, 2008 at 10:26 am

    Ok, you caught me. The truth is that I am a liar. I am just a fat conspiracy theorist with no life. Am sorry guys…

  12. kazja

    February 12, 2008 at 10:28 am

    and fuck you all

  13. luke

    I would love to see fedor fight arlovski. roy i just think there would be a wider variety of apponents in UFC, M-1 had to use a K-1 fighter to take him on for his big comeback fight. I just dont see where his competition is going to come from, I doubt that there will be any top heavyweights in this tournament i hope im proven wrong but i cant see it.

  14. roy

    dam kazja don't get mad people here have been telling you that there not interested and gave you places where you could post up your problems but you kept putting them up here.this is one of my favorite spots to post but there is bigger ones if you want to reach a bigger crowd i can tell that you have inside knowledge and have been around but no one here wants every thread tooken over by your coruption theorys(witch may be true).try posting up some of your knowledge on the topic at hand and you would get a welcomed response but don't sound so alarmed when people get sick of hearing about your other beefs that are not related.

    Way to much anger. Can't we all just get along

    I would like to see this series. I wonder how much contact the fighters will have with Fedor during the show. What I'm really hoping M1 will do is sign more talent and big names instead of relying on Fedor to make or break the organization.

  17. Realwun

    February 12, 2008 at 10:44 am

    I'm just not going to acknowledge any of his conspiracy posts. If Kazja wants to talk about the topic at hand I'm all for it, but other than that I'm not interested.

  18. roy

    February 12, 2008 at 10:45 am

    luke i would have loved to seen him in the ufc too but randy is gone and it looks like arlovski too and maybe sylvia theres barnett who i would rather see him fight even over randy so in the near future i think he will have the compition that he needs.

  19. rhinox

    February 12, 2008 at 10:50 am

    I think M-1 is hoping that since most organizations hw class is watered down that they can build one up. Than if AA, Sylvia, Couture would come their way than they would definetly have something the ufc doesnt. Seems like they are leaning toward the old boxing adage that the hw's fill the seats and then move on from there.

  20. luke

    February 12, 2008 at 10:52 am

    I agree barnett would be a good fight but he hasnt fought for over a year i dont think it would be good if he went straight in and fought fedor. If arlovski and couture do move to M-1 then he's got his challengers.

  21. Jun Da Silva

    Well true MMA fans can agree that PRIDE had the UFC beat, if not the UFC wouldn't have bought PRIDE. They bought the PRIDE organization because it was being a serious threat to the UFC. All organizations have to start some where and I believe M-1 is stepping up their game so what if they only have Fedor that's enough to get the ball rolling and unlike the Japanese the Russians will the Dana and Zuffa their not for sale.

    I did not post those comments #11 and#12 someone else changed there name to mine and are making false statements claiming to be me. I would not swear on this site. I would never use amother persons name and post a saying. It should not be that easy to do. Is this whole site one person making conversation with himself. My last post was #7. I am going to try and post another name lets say Dr. Law if it comes up. Then this site is a joke.

  23. Dr. Law

    February 12, 2008 at 11:52 am

    Kazja you are right.

  24. Dr. Law

    February 12, 2008 at 11:53 am

    What a joke this site is.

  25. kazja

    February 12, 2008 at 11:54 am

    Thanks Dr. Law

  26. kazja

    February 12, 2008 at 12:08 pm

    Dr. Law I bet all the knuckle heads will think this is a conspiracy also. We just proved a fact to everyone. Thanks Dr. Law

  27. Dr. Law

    February 12, 2008 at 12:10 pm

    you are right again

  28. kazja

    February 12, 2008 at 12:17 pm

    Dr. Law who the hell cares about kazja's name been stolen?

  29. Dr. Law

    February 12, 2008 at 12:17 pm

    No one cares

  30. Dr. Law and Kazja

    February 12, 2008 at 12:28 pm

    We care! #28 and #29 false statements again by some psycho that needs medication.

  31. Dr. Law and Kazja

    February 12, 2008 at 12:46 pm

    anyone that calls themselves kazja and dr. law and come to every thread leaving comments about crazy conspiracy and imaginary "evidence" needs medication.

  32. Jun Da Silva

    February 12, 2008 at 1:05 pm

    Kazja, your my boy and all but sometimes you worry me.

  33. richaaron

    February 12, 2008 at 1:19 pm

    What is going on….?

  34. kazja

    February 12, 2008 at 1:34 pm

    #31 is another one claiming to be kazja. Someone has to contact the webmaster to fix this problem. It is to easy for someone to claim to be someone else on this site. It may be the webmaster. This is a joke and whoever is making comments claiming to be me is liable for false information. He is trying to sabotage my credibility to protect the truth from coming out about the corruptness that is going on with the out of control UFC Athletic Commission.

  35. kazja

    February 12, 2008 at 1:53 pm

    Real mma fans just try it you can make your own conversation now on this site. You can make a comment change your name to Dana White hit submit comment. Pow you are Dana White. Then you can respond to the aerobic instructor and type in Tito Ortiz in the box that says name required hit submit comment and now you are Tito. What a joke! Watch the next two post.

  36. Dana

    February 12, 2008 at 1:54 pm

    Tito is the greatest fighter ever to compete in the UFC.

  37. Tito

    February 12, 2008 at 1:55 pm

    Thanks Dana you are the greatest promoter and dance instructor.

  38. kazja

    February 12, 2008 at 1:57 pm

    MMA fans wake up. Have a nice day and find another site this one is a joke.

  39. derek

    February 12, 2008 at 2:53 pm

    wow, randy should sign up to be a contestant. winner of the show has a guaranteed fight against fedor!

  40. derek

    February 12, 2008 at 2:56 pm

    lol. dana called tito a "weasel" in his last interview.

  41. Jun Da Silva

    February 12, 2008 at 3:00 pm

    Kazja, come on dude where you going man, you give us the MMA news straight and forward. Why do you want to leave us. I know this site could get a little out of hand but it's still a cool site. Everyone knows who you are, they even want to be you man, what more do want., that person who was trying to be you never had a Super Hero when he was growing up and now in "THE CAGE" he met you and wants to emulate you. He wants to be "Kazja Man." Don't worry if forgot to take his Ritalin, he'll be okay tomorrow.
