That was probably his reaction too.
He's voiced on numerous occassions that Fedor is his favorite fighter and he doesn't want to have to fight him at all.
How they couldn't come to terms and make Wandy/Rampage 5 in the place & ring in the land where it all started is beyond frustrating. Wand/Page 4 was as awesome as 1,2, & 3, regardless of the oversensitive negative nancies.
And Fedor vs. Werdum was makeable.
Hell, resurrect Fujita, f******! ANYONE!
Including Wand! THAT would've been awesome, particularly as they were both kings of Japan at the same time.
Neither can really gain, but both can lose.
It's not like they're concerned for Wand's health anymore than BKFC.
I can't imagine Wand would be asking for any more to fight Fedor than Quinton to fight his mancrush.
