A court in Amsterdam ended a two-month trial of the suit M-1 Global vs. Vyacheslav Vasilevsky. The court found guilty of violating Vasilevsky exclusive agreement with M-1 Global, signed in 2010.
Vyacheslav Vasilevsky started to play for the M-1 Global in 2010, and in the same year won the title of M-1 Selection and M-1 Challenge. After winning the tournament Challenge XX December 10, 2010 knockout victory over Tomas Narkunom , Wasilewski refused to continue playing for the M-1. Numerous attempts to negotiations between management and the M-1 fighter and search for a solution have failed. Soon, the media was the news that the soldier signed a new contract and will play for one of the major American promotions of MMA-organizations. M-1 Global has decided to resort to legal means to protect their rights in accordance with the signed agreement.
By court order to pay Vasilevsky M-1 Global, the following penalties: from March 25, 2011, € 1,000 for each day of breach of contract, € 5,000 for each day of presentations from any promotional organization, in addition to the M-1 Global, as well as fully reimburse the court the costs of the claimant.
The court's decision will serve as a precedent in the resolution of disputes between athletes and the organization. Based on this decision will soon be seized by Vasilevsky in the United States to the international recognition of the Dutch verdict.
