Fedor Emelianenko announced he may be retiring in his post-fight interview after suffering his second consecutive loss versus Antonio Silva.
He called it "God's will."
If he really does decide to retire, there is a good chance we won't be seeing him ever again. This is disappointing considering there are many opponents we have never seem him face that would still be appealing to the fans.
The part of him that has seemed to have been lost is the invincibility he once carried; the idea that he could never be hurt or lose to an opponent he was expected to beat.
After being dominated by Antonio Silva in the second round, his last and final moment in MMA may have been his darkest.
If he fights again, it will be to not go out on a loss, and the opponent he chooses to face would have to reflect his desire to show the fans that he is always what they thought he was‒the greatest fighter to ever compete in MMA.
