As long as there is a six figure paycheck waiting for him, he'll come back.
Right now, Fedor's in the same point in his career that Chuck Liddell was at when he was getting mauled by the likes of Keith Jardine and Rashad Evans.
Fedor's in the tail end of his career and like most greats, is in denial about it.
I disagree. Chuck didn't get 'mauled' by anyone. He lost a few at the end of his career but they were still good fights. Certainly not getting 'mauled'.
Same goes for Fedor. It's fair to say he got 'mauled' by Big Foot. But other than that he hasn't been 'mauled'.
