At the press conference few hours ago he said this might be his last fight.

http://lenta.ru/news/2012/05/15/emelianenko/

Russian MMA fighter Fedor Emelianenko stated that he plans to end his fighting career in the very near future. He plans to train young fighters but doesn't want to open up his own school/gym.
He will root for Josh Barnett in the finals of the SF HW GP against Daniel Cormier and says chances of himself facing the winner are rather minimal because he is about to retire from the sport.

People can safely go on pretending that if he were "prime" he would wreck everyone today.

This.
Also, he has been saying this for a while, not really a surprise. It's a shame his managment ruined his career, he will always be one of my favorite fighters though. Phone Post

 Perhaps not the best HW of all-time, but imo the most exciting HW of all-time.

One of the greatest of all time. I really wish he would have fought in the Ufc, too bad it never happened. A victim of management, like Sakuraba. Phone Post

If he only got the chance to fight Randy and destroy him easily, some people would actually respect him.

He could have been the GOAT and right now hold the UFC HW belt making mad cash if he went to the UFC and bought a house in the US and trained there with a serious camp.

Sad news. Will miss him immensely.

I never got as excited and nervous at the same time for any fights as I did for a live Fedor fight.

HW GOAT, legend, shame he never fought in the UFC but he's had a great career.

At this point does he want to continue fighting this level of opponent? All the top HW are with Zuffa so he only fights now for a paycheck. He isnt challenging himself against the best in the world.

Well he is the best HW of all time.

debateable, thanks to his management team.

There are certainly heavyweights that can beat him out there. And on top of that, he has lost to a middleweight and has fought a lot of guys who weighed much less than him.

So at the end of the day, he's not as great as his record suggests.

The M-1 management team just lost their gravy train. Sucks to be them.

To be honest, I thought Fedor retired after he got cut by Zuffa...

 Doesn't matter what the noobs and Zuffa shills think of his modern career, Fedor was the greatest HW in MMA history and has earned his retirement.

Annnnd then it was M-none.  Vadummy loses his gravy train.  Should have taken that sweet deal.  Fedor would have steamrolled Brock and up'd his value even more.  We all take wrong turns in the forks of life but this one was fueled by excessive greed so it's nice to see karma step in and curb stomp
