The Truth?! Don Quijote Buying FEG’s MMA Branch?
There’s a new article on cyzo.com touching on what might be the truth of this whole FEG/WVR thing that’s been going on.
According to the article (which doesn’t say that this is 100% true but it’s from people involved) as SENGOKU didn’t get a TV deal (plus their bad attendance), things were getting tough, so Don Quijote’s Yasuda arranged some very secret meetings with FEG President Tanigawa to discuss a union angle which would excite MMA fans.
FEG were however originally not going to agree to this and just leave SENGOKU be until a possible death and then maybe try to sign Ishii.
However, talks came up that FEG’s sponsor, pachinko manufacturer FieLDS, will not renew their contract next year (I think the pachinko industry is doing really bad right now so FieLDS itself might be in a lot of trouble).
The article states that currently there is not just discussion about Don Quijote becoming a sponsor of FEG’s MMA branch, but buying it. The article also goes on about how things are currently difficult for K-1 as well.
