PostSubject: Fedor: One more fight and folding   Fri May 18, 2012 8:30 pm

Quote :
After much speculation, Fedor Emelianenko is calling it a career.

Following his June 21 bout against Pedro Rizzo in St. Petersburg, Russia, Fedor will hang up his gloves for the final time.

“June 21 will be the last fight of my career,” Fedor said, according to iSport.ua.

Fedor ruled the Japanese mixed martial arts scene, dominating many of the best heavyweights in the world during his tenure under the Pride banner.

He defeated the likes of Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Mark Coleman, Kevin Randleman, Semmy Schilt, and others, while many were at or near the peak of their respective careers.

After Pride was purchased by the owners of the UFC and eventually shuttered, Fedor moved on, first to the fledgling Affliction promotion, then on to Strikeforce, where he stuttered to a 1-3 record during his two-year stint there.

Once regarded as the top heavyweight fighter on the planet, Fedor was strongly pursued by the UFC, but the MMA juggernaut and Fedor’s management, M-1 Global, could never see eye-to-eye.

Pedro Rizzo is not a fight... no matter how you look at it... Hell I'd much rather watch Dan Severn fight ....

yeah... idk about this... I'm all for the guy calling it quits, he's looked on the decline for a while now. But with Rizzo as your final opponent? Calling it quits after his W over Monson would have been his best bet at this point... IDK if you know its your last fight why not sign on with Bellator for one against Konrad or a Dream Freakshow Fight against Duffy or something? Going out against a good tough competitor could do alot for his "legacy" as opposed to Pedro "I haven't fought in 2 years" Rizzo.

I've always like Rizzo more the Fedor and really hope he can find a way to win this. His leg kicks have always been devestating. I remember that fight against Tank where he pretty much turned his legs into hamburger meat. And, of course that KO over Barnett was just brutal as hell.

I will definitely be pulling for the Rock in this one.
