In an interview published by the American website Sherdog, the top hat stated that he started new conversations with Vadim Finkelstein, director of M-1 and that he is interested in signing the athletes.
“Look, there are thousands of ways to negotiate. Believe me, I want Fedor more than anyone. Just like I want (Gegard) Mousasi too. So I would love to have both in the UFC. And there is more than one way to negotiate,” said Dana White.
“There is only one way to find out if Fedor wants to come to the UFC. Put him here and let's make him come in and fight. I can do the same thing with Mousasi. I like him (Mousasi),” he said.
