Sad to see him go, one of the greatest - a true legend.

...It was bound to happen soon. Rizzo isn't nothing what he was but that was a classic Fedor beatdown. He went out with a nice KO. He gave the MMA world some memorable fights we can look back on and still cheer. Fedor has a young body with a lotta miles on it. I often wonder about Rogan saying" Werdum shattered the myth surrounding Fedor". I think losing back to back played a role as well. Anywho, it's too bad Emelianenko never set foot into the Octagon. Whatever Fedor decides, he's earned it and them some. A historic run to the Pride HW belt. His fights with Big Nog were classic.
He defended that WAMMA belt twice against 2 game competitors at the time. Add that to his 12 Russian Sambo gold medals, an all around respectful guy, you have a legend...

Putin is pretty heavy into martial arts and a keen supporter of it. He was successfully competing in Judo and Sambo when he was young and is an active practitioner for almost 50 years now. He has a 6th dan (6th degree black belt) in Judo and Kyokushin Karate and a "Master of Sports" rank (third highest Russian title) in Sambo. He even wrote a book on Judo. I don't know anything about any relations with M1. Putin probably likes Emelianenko just for being such a figurehead and ambassador for Russian martial arts all around the world.

Farewell. Always fun to watch and definitely one of the best Heavyweights and fighters of all time. It's a shame he didn't fight in the UFC but he definitely left his mark.

I will always have fond memories of the days when I would teach newcomers that the baddest man in the world was a ringer for the Pillsbury Dough Boy.
