ESPN Interested in Broadcasting M-1 Global and Fedor?

According to a Russian MMA blog, ESPN is taking serious interest in broadcasting M-1 Global fights and even possibly Fedor Emelianenko.  Fedor Emelianenko was the most coveted MMA free agent in the history of the sport.  After turning down a multi-million dollar deal from the UFC, Fedor went on to sign with the newly found M-1 Global for five fights totaling over $12 million.  Rumors have been swirling that HBO, Showtime are both interested.  Now, apparently ESPN has also thrown its hat into the race.  Source: Russian MMA Blogspot
