Sad Fedor says Nyet to retirement

Fedor lives!

“We consulted with Fedor and it was decided that he should not leave the sport in this way. His friends and past opponents support Fedor in continuing his career and he agreed,” said Finkelstein. “We want to organize a fight for Fedor in Russia and have already begun working in this direction. If everything goes as planned, we will produce a card in Moscow or St. Petersburg sometime in the fall with Fedor as the main event.” The opponent is yet to be determined.

More plans are also in the mix according to Finkelstein, “In addition to the fight in Russia, we’re also working with our Japanese contacts to organize a New Year’s Eve event in Japan that Fedor would participate in as well.”

When asked about 2012 Finkelstein spoke optimistically; “If all is successful, in 2012 we’ll be back in the U.S. All these ideas are being developed right now and we want to work exactly according to this plan.”

First cans in Russia. Then Japan. Then … the world!

    Shinya Aoki vs Kyle Maynard….lol….

    First time that Aoki has ever had the striking advantage.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    These are all great, clint – except I can’t see the Japanese letting Sakuraba fight a werewolf – perhaps an Evangelion?

    Sad. About the only interesting fight for him is Overeem and that will never happen.

    Seeing him beat up nobodies in worked matches in Russia will be a real blow to his legacy.

    If this is how Fedor is going to finish his career, I am going to have a hard time convincing my son (when he gets older) that this guy was one of the greatest fighter the sport had ever seen. Despite having zero fights in the UFC.

    World’s Fattest Baby made the corners of my mouth go up. It hurt. What’s that involuntary muscle spasm called?

  • gerg

    The guy’s god damned manager is named Fink. Who the hell trusts anyone named Fink?

  • bosswell

    Clint: fucking awesome.
    Frickshun: is the word you’re thinking of “blowjob”?

  • CAP

    No surprise they are going to give him a layup to get them back on track. Just don’t embarrass yourselves with the selection. I hear Van Damme was looking to fight again! Book it Fink!

    frick: felching is the word your looking for.

    I believe the 2nd was Penn’s. When Fitch took him down he just layed in his guard, when BJ took Fitch down he tried to acadnve and took his guard, he didn’t really settle 100% for the decision, like Fitch did (And always does). But I agree with the judges that the 3rd was 10-8, Penn did nothing and he wasn’t really intelligently defending himself, which makes the fight close to being over.I say move GSP to MW (If he beats Shields) and have a rematch between Penn Fitch for an interim title.
