The career of one of Mixed Martial Arts greatest fighters may be coming to an end sooner rather than later as Fedor Emelianenko has had the idea of retirement on his mind for some time now and talked about the possibility of it with Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour:

“To tell the truth, I certainly, was — I am thinking about retiring but that’s not because of the loss. I used to think about it before [the loss to Fabricio Werdum]…. This is just because of my age. Because of my age, because for the heavyweight sportsman my age is considered a very big one. So sometimes I’m thinking about maybe finishing my sports career because also my former injuries started reminding me about themselves. But I hope that I still will have some time to fight…. I think maybe about a year and after it, it’s God’s will.”
