Fedor's FB page asks if he should come out of retirement

source: facebook

On Tuesday Fedor Emelianenko's official Facebook Fan page, with 500,000 likes, recently posed a question:

Fedor Fans!!! Would you like for Fedor to step into the ring once again?
Yes, but he's has nothing left to prove.
Yes, I think he still has to cement his place in history.
No, he's done so much for the sport and deserves his retirement.
No, a time comes when every great fighter needs to hang up their gloves.

The overwhelming majority of fans (1858 at the time of this writing) wanted Fedor back, but added he had nothing to prove. The next most votes (227) wanted him back and said he still had something to prove. The final, least popular options options were roughly equal, with 167 saying he shouls stay retired and deserves it, and the 154 saying simply that it is time for him to hang up his gloves.

The greatest question raised was not on the poll, and that is why was Fedor's management M-1 Global asking the question?

Is Fedor considering fighting again?

I pretty much typed this exact statement out, only expanding into several paragraphs, and forgot to copy it. Had to settle with a "LOL"

I wonder if he's seriously considering coming out of retirement. Any updates on this?

The fight with Brock would make the most sense.Surely there's a legit promoter (ie not Dana) on the planet who can make this happen? Even as a one off fight card. Offer them both $5mil to show and $5mil to win, no strings.You could prolly double those figures and still make a healthy profit.

He won his last 2 in a row.And don't even start on his opponents given the shit the UFC is serving up - at least he was fighting people in his own weight class.

I'd rather he didn't fight in the UFC.Fuck the cage and the stupid rules. OneFV would be way better, at least he has soccer kicks.

Were he to refrain from slugfests, and seek to outlast, or outpoint his adversary I would say yes, otherwise no.

Hey KingofBJJ, Anderson Silva walks around at 220lbs, Fedor is 230...see where I'm going with that in regards to your weight statment? :)

He has to prove that he's not over rated after he retired and is out of his prime? Are you trolling us or yourself? go crawl back under your rock.

Yes he has something to prove: that he is not overrated. He was beaten three times in a row. That does not happen with elite fighters and certainly not with a P4P.As for Silva, no they can't fight because Silva is a MW and Fedor is a HW. There roughly 60lbs between them.
