If you believe Fedor’s side of the story, White was being rude and disrespectful, so they were never able to complete a deal. White has a colorful response to that courtesy of 5th Round. “We made every big fight with every fighter since we bought this company,” White boasted. “You don’t think we wanted to do Fedor vs. Brock Lesnar? I f****** wanted to make that fight so bad. “Brock wanted that fight. Brock wanted that fight bad. I wanted that fight bad. It sucks.” “Dude, when I tell you that we did everything – someday I’ll tell you the story of how much we offered that f*****, too,” White stated. “People will f****** s***. [The deal] made no sense [for us]. “Literally, when we got on the plane to fly back, we were like, ‘Thank f****** God they turned that offer down.’” “We had to build a f****** stadium in Russia, and we had to do all this stupid s***, stuff that no normal f****** human being would do,” White said. “And now they lay in bed every night and regret not doing that deal. “I explained this to Fedor. We’re catching a moment in time, right here, right now, where this fight between you and Brock Lesnar will be f****** massive. We’re talking Dallas, Texas Stadium. This huge fight between these two big heavyweight guys. We’re laying this massive f****** offer on the table.’ I said, ‘You’re one punch away from being worth f****** zero.’” “Maybe he was [the best heavyweight in the world],” White acknowledged. “Maybe he was when he was fighting in Pride. Maybe he was. I don’t know, because we never got to make some of the fights we wanted to make. “Who knows? Maybe Fedor knocks out Brock, because we saw Brock against guys that hit hard. And that’s probably what [Fedor and manager Vadim Finkelstein] look at now, like, ‘Goddamn. [We should have taken the UFC's offer].’” Tell us how you really feel Dana?
