    Thanks, now I understand why he would have turned them down after MMA became a big deal. But if the UFC or Pride were my promotion, I would be offering him the moon to fight for me, regardless of wheather or not i thought he would turn it down.

    He's 41, and has been out of competition since 2004. I think it's best he stick to what he knows.

    Karelin isn't impressed. "A regular Russian 23-year-old likes vodka, women and cards," he says. "I'm more practical than that. I want to look into one thing and be the best at that. Greco-Roman is an original Olympic sport. I like the idea of being a classical man, of belonging to a classical tradition in music, painting and literature."
    Classy old-schoolery.

    Not to mention the guy has his own damn helicopter.

    True. People fight to have their own damn helicopter. Or for movie deals too.

    One of the single greatest grapplers of all time. Karelin was a physical marvel.

    i didnt see anything in his wiki entry about being married or having kids. i would hope that he would have a few sons. it would be interesting to see how they turned out in competitive grappling in 18 years or so.

    As found on a biography page:
    "He lives with his wife and three children in a mansion in Novobirsk, Siberia"
