Fedor Emelianenko Officially Signs Deal To Fight For M-1

The following are some excerpts from an article on TheFightNetwork.com:

PRIDE heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko has committed exclusively to the new ownership of M-1 Mix-Fight Championship, which has been purchased outright by an undisclosed American entertainment-related company, according to a source close to the deal who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

The article also stated:

The source confirmed the new ownership has infused a substantial amount of capital into the organization. Finkelstein and others will stay on to assist in running the company, which will continue to promote under a variation of the M-1 name. The new M-1 will take more of a global stance, and Emelianenko (26-1) will headline its inaugural event as early as January or February, possibly in the U.S., the source said.

And finally:

A formal announcement of the purchase, as well as plans for the new organization’s first event, is expected by the end of this month.
