The following is an excerpt from an article on MMAWeekly.com:

His signing with the new M-1 Global mixed martial arts promotion put much of that talk to rest, but it all sparked up again when speculation about him fighting in Japan on New Year’s Eve started circulating.

That talk can now be put to rest as well.

“No. It’s not going to happen,” said M-1’s president and CEO, Monte Cox, of the proposed fight.

“There was an offer. We looked at it. We tried to see if it was possible,” he admitted. “But in the end, there just wasn’t enough time to pull it off.

“It wasn’t a bad idea. It was kind of planned to be a sort of goodbye to Pride fans for Fedor.”
