The jerks responsible for Fedor’s retirement

After yesterday’s epic showdown between Fedor Emelianenko and a guy who hadn’t fought in two years, Fedor announced his retirement. And why did he do this? Is it because he’s realized he’s getting old? Is he tired of fighting an endless litany of cans? Here’s what he said after his fight:

“I think it’s time. I’m retiring from sports. I still have the SAMBO World Championships. My family is the reason I will not be fighting again. My daughters are growing without their father, so it’s the right time to leave.”

Goddamnit. First it’s M-1 screwing everything up, now it’s Fedor’s family. Someone needs to kidnap his daughter and force him to fight in a crazy underground tournament or something. Actually, considering he’s buddies with one of the most powerful dictators in the world, I take that back. Even the suggestion of messing with his kids might result in some polonium-210 in my Lucky Charms.

This retirement stuff seems a bit premature, like maybe Fedor forgot to do something. Did no one tell him if he doesn’t compete in the UFC before retiring his career means nothing? He must not read forums or twitter.

    Who’s the jerk responsible for not having FX chat up on time?

    Since when was Vladimir Putin a dictator? What are the prerequisites for being a dictator? Is it being Russian or fixing the polls? If that was the case every other U.S president would be labelled a dictator

    Worst article I have ever read from a mainstream sports reporter! Training like a GD Beast takes away the focus from Family and I respect Fedor’s decision regardless of my own selfishness. If you really want to blame someone for the retirement blame the Politics first and foremost, Blame Dana, And unrelated…Blame the Nevada State Athletic Commission ( I hate those bastards), for not setting up the best fights possible!!!, But in twenty years from now when he is holding a grandchild he wont be saying I wish I was still in the ring for all those selfish SOBs!!! Too many Deadbeat Dads in MMA. Hopefully years from now he wont speak with a slur like Gary Goodridge!

     It’s better to go out on top then to go out like Ken Shamrock!

    it’s about time he retires anyway. got exposed a few times, do some damage control by beating someone last relevant in 2000. better to leave than keep fighting cans (and even risk losing to them) or fight good fighters and actually lose…

    hey threat starter, i seriously don see why u need to do this. even after what u had done, fedor is still fedor. fedor is still the guy that bully ex ufc champs. fedor is still the fedor that has no lost over ten years. and btw if fedor’ family members really got kidnap the poilce will be tracking down your ip.

    american rules are shit, they wank off to takedowns even thgouh takedowns do nothing unless you capitalize on it. Japanese rules are better because it scores you overall and not round by round and also scores you for how well you defend, escape etc. Jap fighters arent used to American rules.
