"I am in ongoing discussions with some of his (Fedor Emelianenko's) people. I plan on making a significant investment in MMA with the goal of promoting it as a professional sport with professional athletes. There is no reason that a fighter in an undercard match should be treated any differently than how I treat our players on the Mavs. We would work with his promoters to place him in fights from affiliated promoters or in fights we promote ourselves."
