Fedor Backs Off Retirement Talk

Fedor Emelianenko vs Antonio Silva

Following his doctors stoppage loss to Antonio Bigfoot Silva at last Saturdays Strikeforce event, a bloody, swollen and defeated Fedor Emelianenko seemed certain of retirement. Now that he is back home in Russia, the great heavyweight has change his tune.

“I rushed to declare my retirement. I will fight more. Possibly, I will return to the Heavyweight Grand-Prix. I am capable of having a few more fights. I didn’t make any analysis yet on why I lost. I need to recover, I can’t see very well yet.” [BloodyElbow]

With all the money surrounding the Fedor, I doubt this is the last time we see him fight.
