    Default Dana White doesn't know why Fedor Emelianenko's manager attended UFC on FUEL TV 9

    Dana White doesn't know why Fedor Emelianenko's manager attended UFC on FUEL TV 9 - MMA Fighting

    The Fedor Emelianenko to UFC rumors just won't go away.

    Two months after talk surfaced that Emelianenko's long-time manager Vadim Finkelstein attended UFC on FUEL TV 7 in London, Finkelstein was spotted in the crowd during the UFC on FUEL TV 9 broadcast on Saturday night in Stockholm, Sweden.

    Finkelstein's unlikely cameo came when the cameras showed heavyweight Stefan Struve sitting cageside. The Russian manager, who UFC president famously nicknamed "Vadummy," was on camera for several seconds.

    The appearance was newsworthy because of his seemingly rocky relationship with White over the years, and because White admitted in January that he was close to finally signing Emelianenko to a UFC deal last year before the heavyweight decided to retire once and for all following the death of his father.

    However, despite Finkelstein's cageside seats, which are typically reserved for VIP guests, White said at the post-fight press conference that he didn't know Finkelstein attended the show or why he was there.

    "I think he's stalking me," White joked. "I don't know why he was here.

    "We don't really talk and hang out, you know what I mean?"

    Isn't there plenty of history between Vadim and Mousasi? I'm sure he was there to watch Gegard's UFC debut.

    I know why. Because Fedor is planning his comeback. A royal rumble between him, Brock Lesnar and Randy Couture.

    I'm just going to assume an mma manager enjoys watching mma.

    He just came to watch Mousasi.
    Seriously anyone still thinks that Fedor will be fighting in the UFC one day?

    I don't know...I think a control freak like Dana would know if someone like that was at his show. I'm not buying it....

    Weather DW new he was there or not doesn't mean he new why. Some good points watch Mousasi and enjoys MMA. Either way with there past history it's doultfull they could ever agree, as now Vad would have to concide the most.

    Vadim probably assumed that if he showed up, someone from the UFC would come up to him, and beg him (M-1) to co-sponsor their Russia show. Because we all know that the UFC will never do well there, without M-1's help.
