-- FightLine.com is reporting that the UFC presented Fedor Emelianenko with a six-fight, $30 million dollar contract, which the Russian heavyweight turned down.
One of the items listed in the article was that Fedor would have been offered an immediate title shot with UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar, and that Fedor's management company would have received a percentage of the Fedor - Lesnar PPV.
Fedor's management apparently wants Fedor's fight to be co-promoted with M-1 Global, which will not happen. The UFC is still hopeful to get him signed, however it's looking more and more unlikely.
