The following is a rumor-killer update from CBS Sports writer Sam Caplan's FiveOuncesOfPain.com website:

I didn’t hear the show but I’ve read in several places that Tagg Radio reported today that the show heard from a reliable source in Fedor Emelianenko’s camp that he’s been offered a four fight deal worth $2 million per bout that would also allow him to fight in Russia. The reports I am reading suggests that Fedor is close to accepting.

If that story is in fact being reported I can tell you that a reliable source I spoke to from the UFC left me with a completely different impression of Thursday’s meeting. I did not ask the source specifically about Tagg Radio’s report and simply asked about how the meeting on Thursday went. The answer was not good and no indication was given that a deal was even close to being agreed to.

Never get your news from a site called FiveOuncesofPain.com. Especially when Yahoo! now has MMA stories in its boxing section and so does Fox Sports (shout out to the partner)

They had Maskaev-Okhello in Russia and they're having Ibragimov-Holy there too. Why not a UFC? One bout deal - Couture vs. Fedor - with a stipulation Fedor has to defend within 6 months wherever Zuffa says if he wins. Make it a major, major event. I wonder if Randy would go for it since it "favors" someone making their debut in the company rather than the champion...
