    The agreement will see M-1 Global effectively act as the farm league to the world's biggest MMA promotion, and focus on the development of MMA in Russia and the CIS, and will be involved in the preparation and holding of sports events under the UFC brand.

    M-1 will oversee the search for and training of new MMA prospects in Russia, and the deal will also see all M-1 champions have the opportunity to sign a contract with the UFC.

    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    Not any more, he's a Bellator property these days!

    The guy I'm excited to see come from M1 is Ivan Buchinger, a Lightweight...….he's torn up the European scene for years, think he lost recently but until then his only loss was Conor, I think. He's very exciting to watch.

    EXCLUSIVE contract though?

    From what I recall, yes it is. Although Bellator don't really hold any of their guys exclusively, they let them fight all over really.
