UFC allowing M-1 co-branding in Fedor vs Henderson? (pic)

Something that we never thought we would see on a Zuffa owned promotion..  Co-branding, as we see on the upcoming Strikeforce: Fedor vs Henderson poster with an M-1 Global logo in the top right. UFC parent company, Zuffa llc. has publicized in the past that they would never co-promote with any other MMA organization including M-1 promotions, which had proved to stop former p4p champion Fedor Emelianenko from entering the UFC.

Perhaps for once things are truly ‘business¬† as usual’ at Strikeforce promotions as Zuffa may have their hands tied in this situation. It had been been a topic of question if Fedor was in fact a Zuffa contracted fighter or an M-1 fighter, and Zuffa has verified that Emelianenko is under Zuffa contract as of now. If so, why the co-branding? Perhaps a contract clause could answer this.
