Board suspends Fedor Emelianenko

After suffering his second consecutive defeat Saturday night in East Rutherford, N.J., heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko raised the possibility of retirement.

"Maybe it's time for me to leave," Emelianenko said. "Maybe it's high time. Thank God for everything.

"I've had a long sport life. Maybe it's God's will."

Fedor Emelianenko can't fight in New Jersey for at least 90 days as a result of Saturday's injuries.

It's not yet certain if Emelianenko will make his postfight comments official. One thing is clear, he will have three months to ponder his MMA future.

Emelianenko was among several fighters hit with suspensions by the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board after Saturday night's Strikeforce card at Izod Center.

He was suspended 90 days due to an eye injury suffered during his bout with Antonio Silva. A cageside physician called off the fight after Round 2.

Emelianenko is also suspended indefinitely pending a CT scan of head and facial bones. Should Emelianenko have the CT scan performed during his mandatory suspension, the earliest he can return is 91 days.

Heavyweight Andrei Arlovski was hit with a 30-day suspension after his knockout loss to Sergei Kharitonov. The KO came at 2:49 of the first round.

It was the third KO loss in four fights for Arlovski.

Despite registering a first-round TKO victory, heavyweight Chad Griggs must sit 30 days due to hematoma on his left ear.

Griggs' opponent Gian Villante was also suspended 30 days due to the knockout.

Welterweight Don Carlos-Clauss was handed a 30-day suspension in order to heal from lacerations suffered during his first-round loss to Sam Oropeza.

Featherweight Anthony Leone is sidelined 90 days in order to heal after a cageside physician stopped his fight with Josh Laberge. The bout was halted after the first round.

Leone has also been suspended indefinitely pending medical clearance.

Like Vera and Koschek rolled up in one mean muggin' Russian.

I've never personally seen someone red up that darkly so fast.
