All good things must come to an end. Last night Fedor Emelianenko, the greatest pound for pound fighter ever to step in to the ring, lost for his second time after an illustrious career.

We all knew his reign would have to come at some point, but I expected it to last a few more years.

I began to notice his pace slowing about 3 years ago, and ever since then he just didn't look like the same fighter any more. He also commented on his heart not really being in it any more. Once your motivation and desire go, expect the rest to go.

Regardless of all of that, no one can take away his legacy as being the baddest man on the planet.

Good luck, Fedor, in all of your future endeavors.

The UFC wants to own the entirety of its fighters' careers. He had good reasons not to join.

Much as it would have been really really cool to see him fight Lesnar.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

Agreed on all counts.
