Hearing you don't have the fire anymore sucks. Denial sucks even more. The first thing you do it get angry at the person who makes the statement running through your own head.
I don't blame Fedor for what he said and he's been saying it as far back as 2010.
As a matter of fact, I guarantee you the Underground plagiarized the 2010 interview in the article cited here:

I think we may have a little extra manufactured drama going on here.
Now, I know this sounds stupid as hell, but is someone trying to drum up interest in a rematch with either Fedor or Aleks again???
And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
And the microphone smells like a beer
