Lance Pugmire, the reporter who broke the Fedor Emelianenko story for the Los Angeles Times, has posted an update on Twitter regarding the negotiations. He says that while negotiations continue, they are complex and likely will not be finished in time for Friday’s media conference call.
This indicates that the deal was not finalized, as Pugmire originally reported. I’m actually surprised by this update, even though I shouldn’t be. Pugmire is one of the best reporters in the business and has a stellar reputation.
