Massive. Just received an email from a very reliable source from Russia that Fedor will be running for a congress seat in Russia for the pro-Kremlin party 'United Russia'. The party is dominant in the country and holds around 80% of the seats in the senate and Fedor will be representing his region. That's a fact. Just wait for the official announcement which will probably come at the end of this week if not in the next few hours. Now the accompanied rumor is that after Fedor fulfills the last two fights in his Strikeforce contract, he will retire from MMA.
I know all of this sounds bonkers. Trust me, even I can't believe I'm writing a 'Fedor retirement' article on a Thursday night. You're skeptical, I know. Keep in mind that we did break the news that the winner of Josh Koscheck vs. Paul Daley will be the new TUF 12 coach. We even got it right when we broke the news that Shaquille O'Neal is an unlockable character in UFC Undisputed 2010.
Once the news breaks (and I'm absolutely sure it will, perhaps within hours), remember where you read it from first.
