Ishii may have suffered career ending injury in bout with Fedor


When Fedor Emelianenko rocked Satoshi Ishii and sent him to the hospital, the initial worry was about a broken nose. In the post-fight chatter, the blood was discussed as a factor in changing Ishii’s psychology during the fight. For some fighters, seeing their own blood can spook them. What Satoshi Ishii didn’t know when he got rattled by Fedor is that it may have very well been his last fight ever.

Putting the cherry on top of the proverbial sundae, Japanese weekly publication Cyzo (which has been on a very good run this month for fight business stories) reports that doctors have told Ishii that he suffered a cerebral edema from the NYE beating. As a result, he was warned that any further blows to the head would cause some serious damage. As Cyzo put it, Ishii is facing a retirement crisis. There had been some discussion that he would face Ricardo Arona in late March in Brazil but that fight didn’t look to be in the cards. After this latest development, the MMA prospects for Ishii look to be bleak as well.

It might seem that way, but in reality there's only about 10 trolls at most (Drmmgay, stonepony, and watchinmma are 3 of the main ones actually) that are obsessed with bashing Fedor and post (obsessively sometimes) on every thread about him

 Im still not talking about that you try to go offtopic hide the fact that Fedor or his management, maybe some his delusional fans made up this rumor to hype up Fedor. It might have been Fedor himself laying out these rumors, since he must know how much of a work that fight looked and was

Way to not address my post. Keep trying to convince people Fedor isn't a great fighter, just makes you look ridiculous. For someone who knows so much and is always right, your new name is fitting.

 They already resorted to Nuthugger tactics by attacking me in person and not understanding how much they were off in their thinking on this thread. But, hey anything to help Fedor in forum politics, I mean Fedor aint helping them by choosing Ishii's and Lashley's..
