The Russian-Chinese investment fund, Mubadala Investment Company, and Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) have jointly announced the foundation of UFC Russia. The new company will promote MMA and organize new shows in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).

M-1 Global is going to be a partner, responsible for scouting and signing Russian athletes to prepare them to fight in the UFC. M-1 Challenge champions will have a unique opportunity to sign contracts with the UFC.

“We are looking forward to further cooperation with the UFC and the Russian-Chinese investment fund working on developing young Russian talents,” M-1 Global president Vadim Finkelchtein said. “This partnership will benefit our sport very much. MMA is a very popular sport and cooperation of the UFC, investment fund and M-1 Global can take MMA in Russia to a new level. Competition in M-1 Global is going to be even tougher and that means we are going to see even more excellent and spectacular fights!”

M-1 has been letting their top fighters go to UFC for a long time so I´m not surprised. They´re all feeder leagues nowadays.

Yep you're right they are just a ufc feeder league I don't know why vadim wanted to partner with the ufc?  Especially the ufc smear campaign of m1 by dana and the ufc fan boys.

Great point. Fedor escaped from being a UFC puppet under the M-1 banner.

Very true. We still have Rizin, Bellator, Road FC, KSW, ONE, and some others that are not feeders to the UFC but there are too many feeder leagues, I agree.

Absolutely, I don't get why anyone would want anything to do with them. Eddie Goldman warned about it and reminded people who think they can do business that it didn't happen with PRIDE, didn't happen with WFA, didn't happen with WEC, and it didn't happen with Strikeforce.

The ufc will just use m1 to get what they want and then throw them by the way side two things will happen 
1 m1 will end up as ufc feeder league
2 the ufc will buy out m1 global 
3 thank God fedor is with viacom can you imagine if he was still with m1

The amateur groups of both Zuffa/UFC and M-1 are merging, so this is no surprise. M-1 is a shell of itself, so also no surprise right there.

I agree it is no wonder the ufc fans are called "zombies"  because as soon as a person says I'm not a ufc fan or a fighter says I have no interest in fighting in the ufc they act like you're being blasphemous committing sin because you are either not a fan or don't wanna fight in the ufc . That is the difference between us and them pride is the goat organisation ever in my opinion rizin is my current favourite and I do think they can be a major force but they are not at the pride level of status yet. 

Pride to me was way more real then the ufc ever was soccer kicks head stomps knee to the head pile drivers one night tournaments didn't give a shit about weight classes unlike today were people bitch about 0.907 kg 2lbs

As for the ufc m1 paaaartnership it is called ufc Russia there is no m1 in the name is there?

Yup, PRIDE was best and RIZIN is current best in my opinion as well.
