They have a funny way of looking at things over at M-1 Global. By funny, of course, I mean stupid. That’s the only explanation for their latest endeavor, a reality show where sixteen fighters compete for the chance to face Fedor Emelianenko. Oh yeah, they also seem to think that this is a new idea.
I can’t tell you what’s going on inside the minds of the M-1 Global executives. Apparently unsatisfied with being a Fedor rental operation disguised as a fight promotion, they’re now endeavoring to tread ground already broken by their predecessors, only they want to do a much sloppier job of it.
I also have to wonder if M-1 has license to use that old Pride footage of Fedor. I mean, any other company you’d give them credit for not being so dumb as to expose themselves to the most litigious fight organization on the planet.
Then again, nothing about what M-1 has done makes me inclined to assume that there’s any intelligent thinking going on in there.
