M-1 Global’s Evgeni Kogan on Showtime, The Relationship with the UFC, and Fedor’s Future


M-1 Global’s Director of Operations Evgeni Kogan took time for an interview with MMAWeekly Radio just 24 hours away from the promotion’s latest offering on Showtime.

Kicking off on Friday night, M-1 Global will present their second show featuring a main event heavyweight bout between Kenny ‘Deuce’ Garner and Pat Bennett.

Kogan talks about the upcoming card, and also the plans for a show in October that will likely feature two title bouts.

Also, since Strikeforce has been bought out by Zuffa, Kogan explains how the relationship with M-1 Global has been working with them so far, and he also gives his thoughts on the upcoming bout between Fedor Emelianenko and Dan Henderson.
