Well just a rumor here it goes:(taken from www.tatame.com.br) taken just a part from the complete article.
Por falar em Minotauro, a Dream Stage Entertainment (organizadora do Pride) já confirmou a luta do brasileiro com o russo Emelianenko Fedor pela disputa do cinturão dos pesados para essa edição do torneio. Entretanto, esse combate pode não se realizar. Segundo informações, o russo estaria reclamando do pouco tempo entre um Pride e outro, e que isso prejudicaria a sua preparação para a disputa do título. Se Fedor não lutar, outro russo poderá ocupar o lugar contra Minotauro, mas sem disputar o cinturão.

And talking about Minotauro DSE. has confirmed the fight between the brazilian and the russian Emelianenko Fedor for the heavyweight championship for the next edition of pride.
Meanwhile this combat could not be done. According to informations, the russian would be asking for a time between a pride and another, because this is something that would affect his preparation towards the fight for the fight, If fedor doesnt fight, maybe another russian could occupy his place against minotauro, but it wont be a championship fight.

The champs fighting without the title is a good and intelligent move by Pride, if the opponent wins the organization will card them again for the title, more money and drama.

It is better then wait for one year ... zilions of talking about contracts, special undisclosed rules, marketing the public with trash, etc ... At the end we have Tito facing an old not ranked legend to be just smashed.

How long do we have to wait to see Tito fighting again?
