Fedor Emelianenko may be done for good.  After being beaten soundly by Antonio “Big Foot” Silva en route to a second round doctor stoppage, Fedor announced that it was time for him to stop fighting.

In a post-fight interview, Fedor openly stated that this could be it for him.  When asked straight-forward if he was done for good by in-ring announcer Gus Johnson, Fedor responded by saying, “”Yes, maybe it’s the last time. Maybe it’s high time. Thank you for everything. I spent a great, beautiful, long sporting life. Maybe it’s God’s will.”
