Fedor Considering Retirement, Not A Fan Of The UFC

0

Fedor Emelianenko has two fights left on his current contract with Strikeforce and it looks like there is a possibility that the consensus top heavyweight in the world may be looking at retirement sooner rather than later:

“Fighting for my country and my heritage is what motivates me. Nothing else … I'm not a UFC fan, so I believe our fight is more important (than Lesnar vs. Carwin). I'm not a fan of watching UFC fights. There is always a lot of negativity coming out of their fights. I don't want to look too far ahead, I'm just focusing on Werdum. We have two fights left with Stirkeforce, and assuming everything goes well, I don't see any reason why we wouldn't continue the relationship. But I am considering retirement more and more often now. I'd like to finish out my contract without any losses and then just see what God has planned for me.”
