Fedor Emelianenko spoke to “Inside MMA” for the first time since announcing his retirement this past weekend after demolishing Pedro Rizzo in Russia.
Emelianenko touched on the reasons for his retirement and also gave his thoughts on possible fights that could lure him out of retirement such as Brock Lesnar:
“I've got daughters, and they're growing up without me. This is very, very difficult for me. Family is always first place for me, so this is the time.”
No, I'm not tired of the questions. There are actually going to be more of the questions. People will accept my decision. They gotta understand that it's my decision and I've got to go.You shouldn't be disappointed that I'm leaving. Life is going on. I want to thank everyone who has supported me. Eventually the time to go was coming. My time has come. We'll try to make some new MMA stars””
As for a return, “I'm not promising, but anything is possible,” said Fedor.
