Fedor Emelianenko has officially retired from Mixed Martial Arts
Emelianenko finished the Brazilian veteran Pedro Rizzo in a mere 44 seconds.
The Last Emperor had this to say after his victory: “I think it’s time. I’m retiring from sports. I still have the SAMBO World Championships. My family is the reason I will not be fighting again. My daughters are growing without their father, so it’s the right time to leave.”
Emelianenko went undefeated for almost a decade until his loss to Fabricio Werdum in June 2010 and was adamant about his decision: “There’s no ‘fantastic’ offer that could tempt me out of retirement. I’m not obsessed with rematching Fabricio Werdum. There’s no agreement for such a fight, therefore there’s nothing to talk about.”
Fedor’s retirement signifies the end of an era. Now that he has formally walked away from a legendary career the Last Emperor can devote his time to being a father to his children. We wish him nothing but the best.
