All i read was Fedor saying, "Maybe its time to leave" then i hear SF say that if anyone gets injured Fedor is the first to step in.
Nothing sounds official yet at all
But i totally agree that Fedor would do better as a big LHW, and his hand speed would STILL be A lot faster then most LHW's so i dont see how having close to the fastest hands in LHW being any worse of a advantage then having guys like 40 pounds bigger then you...
Fedor would bring scary power to the LHW division and would be a big LHW so he would have a easier time getting back to his feet if taken down, and he is obviously better standing.
I would love to see him fight someone like Dan Henderson, it would be epic.
But like you said i dont think Fedor has the heart right now to care enough to wanna drop down and try to make it.
He is almost to prideful in the sense of him going to LHW is saying he cant handle the HW's, which is obviously true...
