M-1 Global to Release “Groundbreaking MMA Reality Series”

M-1 Global released a video teaser on their website unveiling a new reality television project entitled “Fighting Fedor.” According to the video’s narration, fighters from around the world will join up at Red Devils Sports Club in St. Petersburg, Russia to live together, be filmed by American film crews, and fight in a tournament in which the victor will earn the right to fight against Pride heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko.

This video was recently posted on The video boasts that this will be a mixed-martial-arts unlike anything ever seen on American television… we shall see.

As of yet, no television affiliates have been mentioned, nor any information regarding a debut date.

    Hell yes…this ought to have the UFC execs plenty pissed!!!

  • ufcfan says:


    didn’t this show start a few years ago
    and wasn’t it called “The Ultimate Fighter”

  • Jason Brewer says:

    This looks way better than TUF and the prize is a lot better than a six figure UFC contract ($20K a fight for 5 fights yipee)

  • TomK says:

    What’s the prize? The chance to lose a fight to Fedor and then never be heard from again? I’d take the 5 fight deal with the UFC.

  • Mike Wolfe says:

    I can see it now. A cast of circus freaks and reality show losers like New York , Bret Michaels, Tila Tequila and Flavor Flav all living together in a house squabbling for the right to either date Fedor or fight him or both. They could call it “Sambo: the Dance of Desire” or “Tough Love” or “Hurt so Good” or “Fedor’s Big Adventure”

    Maybe that’s the next 5 oz. contest: Create the plot and the name for Fedor’s new show!

    hadnt seen that video clip yet. is that MAC DANZIG doing the shadow boxing at like the 50 second mark? surprised they were allowed to use the pride footage as well.

  • GassedOut says:

    It looks exactly like TUF to me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big mark for Fedor, but this is hardly new or groundbreaking for American TV.

  • Zack says:

    This is ‘tarded up.

  • Patrick says:

    People need to get off Fedors nuts.

  • Matt says:

    I thought that was Danzig too, but later on in the clip they showed a glimpse of a guy that looked alot like him. Don’t tell me that none of you guys would watch it if there was nothing else on.

  • Jim says:

    I hope they get sued for using the Pride film.

  • hankd says:

    Definitely odd that they used all of the Fedor Pride footage…in the past 9 months or so we’ve only seen his footage vs Lindland, etc.

  • Ian says:

    This is obviously a vehicle to get Fedor some name recognition in America. It seems Reality TV is the fastest way to make it happen. It’s not like the UFC invented the genre. They just profited off of a proven entertainment model. So now, instead of Dana controlling his image in America, Fedor and M-1 get to do it their way.

    That’s a good thing, in my book.

  • Eric says:

    I wonder if it’s too late for Arlovski to get in on this. He may have a decent chance.
