M-1 Global, a partner to Affliction in promoting the recently cancelled “Trilogy” event, has recently issued a sincere open apology to the fans that were planning on watching the highly anticipated show.

The company has stated that the cancellation of “Affliction Trilogy” came as much of a surprise to them as anyone else as they have recently revealed in a press release issued to FiveOuncesOfPain.com that they had been given no warning or notice of the events cancellation.

Fedor Emelianenko had no clue to the demise of the event as he and 35 members of his crew were a mile high, on their way to Anaheim, California – U.S.A. when they received the bad news.

The statement also confirms that Fedor was absolutely ready to go regardless of who his opponent may have been. This is perhaps the least surprising news of the recent events that have unfolded over the last few days. Eight days notice on an opponent? No problem.

M-1 Global understands how disappointed fans are that they will not be able to see Fedor in action and have promised to ensure that “The Last Emperor” will return as soon as possible.
