This. But I don't think Fedor has enough time to adjust to 205 and establish himself there. He probably has had enough of fighting.
Too much time passed since Pride and he was too inactive, he should have been in the UFC. He would have been the number 1 heavyweight if he was, he would have smashed Couture and then probably Lesnar too. Now with the likes of bigfoot, Cain, JDS etc... the sport has evolved past Fedor.
The most respectful and humble fighter ever, sad to see him bow out but it had to come sooner or later. The losses weren't too devastating so he can retire gracefully.
