Wouldn't this be a storyline to spin: CroCop washes out of the UFC - or takes a sabbatical, at least - and after his departure, knocks out Fedor Emelianenko, the man who refused the UFC for their contractual obstinacy. How much would Dana White love that? He would hang that over the head of Vadim Finkelstein and M-1 until his dying breath. I can't say I totally blame him either.
On the positive side for MMA fans, at least Fedor has someone to fight other than gigantic Koreans and Kodiak bears.
