Strikeforce: Fedor Emelianenko vs. Dan Henderson, takes place July 30th, 2011 on Showtime. Will this be Fedor’s last fight? Loser of 2 in a row in shocking fashion (tap out, doctor stoppage), Fedor prepares for another fight after strongly considering retirement.
Emelianenko returns to the cage to face Dan Henderson, if Emelianenko does not win, many expect him to retire. In his last fight with Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, Emelianenko wilted in the second round as Silva passed to mount, Silva unleashed a furious ground-and-pound on Emelianenko that left him bloody and swollen. Emelianenko wanted the fight to continue, but his right eye had swollen so much that ringside doctors called a stop to the fight, claiming Emelianenko could not see.
Immediately after the fight, Emelianenko implied he may retire after losing 2 in a row. Through a translator he said, “Yes, maybe, it’s the last time. Maybe it’s high time. Thanks for everything. I spent a great beautiful long sport life. Maybe it’s God’s will.” But after some time, it was clear that Emelianenko was speaking on emotion as he planned to fight again. But will a third loss in a row convince Emelianenko to retire? Or will a victory keep him going? We can only wait and see.
