    Fedor Runs for Senate and Retires??

    Middle Easy's breaking the news:
    http://middleeasy.com/index.php?opti...rticle&id=2316

    Huge news. 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.
    So after Werdum and Overeem, that's it? He is getting on in the years, but this will definitely leave the biggest "What If" in the history of the sport. I can guarantee that Dana White will use it as proof that Fedor's been ducking the UFC heavyweights, and I don't know if he'd be that off. Why risk such a pristine record when you're already getting older and looking for a career change?

    As a fan though, it'd drives me bonkers if we never see Fedor vs. Lesnar/Carwin/even-Randy-Couture-at-this-point.

    Wow! That is huge news. I'm actually glad. I get so tired of seeing fighters fight past their prime, and ruin their reputations. I would love to see Fedor go out on top!

    Thus he will not go down the Muhammad Ali route and Fedor haters will be doomed to a life of impotent rage. I love it.

    Update: M1 Press Release, Original Russian
    http://www.mixfight.ru/info/publicat...0/6/3/Edinaia/

    Белгородские единороссы объявили старт праймериз к выборам в областную Думу
    Опубликовано 3 июня 2010 года
    Сегодня, 28 мая, региональный политсовет партии «Единая Россия» одобрил список кандидатов на внутрипартийные выборы – праймериз. В списке 58 кандидатов. Не менее 10 000 единороссов голосованием определят лучших, которые и получат первые места в партийном списке на грядущих октябрьских выборах в Белгородскую областную Думу.
    В списке предварительного голосования есть 24 дебютанта, которые никогда не участвовали в выборах в органы законодательной власти. Одним из достижений стало включение в список не только членов «Единой России», но также просто сторонников партии и даже беспартийных кандидатов. Это к примеру управляющий директор комбината КМАруда Владимир Томаев и глава корпорации ЖБК-1 Юрий Селиванов. Они не только не являются членами партии, но и, работая в облдуме четвёртого созыва, не вошли в думскую фракцию единороссов.
    По словам руководителя общественной приёмной партии Юрия Селивёрстова, среди белгородских единороссов были дискуссии о том, стоит ли выдвигать от партии беспартийных. Пришли к положительному решению. Это позволило выдвинуть и ряд кандидатов, представляющих общественные организации региона, – председателей организации инвалидов «Союз-Чернобыль», организации ветеранов внутренних дел и др.
    Среди наиболее примечательных кандидатов, помимо действующих депутатов облдумы (Анатолия Зеликова, Виктора Филатова, Вадима Клета, Валерия Скруга, Ивана Кулабухова, Владимира Куликовского), – знаменитый спортсмен Фёдор Емельяненко, новый ректор БГТУ Сергей Глаголев (к слову, беспартийный), директор института государственного и муниципального управления БелГУ Александр Маматов.

    Middle Easy Translation:
    The regional political council of the party "United Russia" approved the list of candidates for internal party elections - the primaries. In the list of 58 candidates. No less than 10 000 United Russia vote will determine the best, and who will receive the first place in the party list in the upcoming October elections in the Belgorod Regional Duma.

    The list of early voting have 24 newcomers who have never participated in elections to the legislature. One of the achievements was the inclusion in the list not only members of United Russia, but also simply to party supporters and even non-party candidates. This is for example the managing director Combine KMA Ruda Vladimir Tom and CEO JBK-1 Yuri Selivanov. They are not only members of the party, but also by working in obldume fourth convocation, not included in the United Russia Duma faction.

    Among the most notable candidates, in addition to the deputies (Anatolia Zelikow, Victor Filatov, Vadim Cage, Valeria Skruga, Ivan Kulabuhova, Vladimir Kulikovsky) - a famous athlete Fedor Emelianenko, the new director of Belarusian State Technological University Sergey Glagolev (by the way, non-partisan), director of the Institute of Public and municipal government BSU Alexander Mamatov.
