    i don't think fedor's coming back from retirement to compete in mma ever again. may be as a judge or special honourary guest but not as a fighter. when fedor says he's retiring i believe he will stay retired. no ifs or buts.

    I just don't trust it to happen until it happens.....reliability of promoters, even within the U.S can be shaky at best....

    It says that in august 11th will be the final of the first ever official "MMA Russian championship".

    In august 10th, weigh ins will take place and also there will be the opening of a fan zone.

    It says that Fedor will be participating, but it does not exactly say if he will take part in the championship or will be making some exhibition fight. It does not say anything about any potential opponent.

    As I understand it, it will be like a little festival to celebrate "The day of the sportsman". So the MMA championship will take place, some exhibitions, recognition to trainers and sporstmen from Sochi, even a car competition.
    I am not sure what exactly Fedor will be doing. We will see.

    So much for retiring, it appears Fedor will compete in a government MMA tourney | So much for retiring, it appears Fedor will compete in a government organized MMA tournament this month

    Alright, here's what we know about the following paragraph of squiggly and unintelligible lines. It's Russian, that's a start. It discusses a tournament for the 'Official Russian MMA championship' which leads people to believe that it's organized by the government. The event goes down on August 11th. The article was first published in the town in which the bout will take place. People believe that Fedor will only attend the event, but the title of the original article is 'Федор Емельяненко проведет бой в Сочи' which means 'Fedor will fight in Sochi.' If Fedor does compete, it will most likely be an exhibition match. Here's the untranslated excerpt for anyone else that wants to give it a shot:

    Федор Емельяненко проведет бой в Сочи

    10 и 11 августа на курорте состоятся массовые мероприятия, посвященные празднованию Дня физкультурника.

    Напомним, 11 августа в клубе "Плотформа" пройдет финал первого в истории нашей страны официального Чемпионата России по смешанному боевому искусству.

    Накануне, 10 августа на олимпийской площадке Live Site возле морпорта состоится торжественное открытие фанзоны и взвешивание участников Чемпионата, рассказала начальник управления культуры администрации Сочи Рузанна Барсегян. Трансляцию боев также можно будет смотреть на Live Site.

    Недавно стало известно, что в соревнованиях примет участие Федор Емельяненко - заслуженный мастер спорта по самбо и мастер спорта международного класса по дзюдо. Об этом сообщили в мэрии Сочи.

    Кроме того, в День физкультурника 10 августа на площадке Live Site состоится чествование сочинских спортсменов и тренеров, пройдет ряд показательных состязаний, - рассказала замдиректора департамента физкультуры и спорта администрации Сочи Галина Мацнева.

    Одним из показательных мероприятий станет соревнование по автоманеврированию. Федерация автомобильного спорта Сочи проведет соревнования легковых автомобилей по фигурной езде "Сочинский лабиринт 2012".
    Massive thanks to Andrey Kamensky from Sherdog for the help with uncovering whatever facts are buried in those garbled lines known as 'Russian.' Feel free to read the rest of the article which is unfortunately not written in English.
