We all get old boys... it's part of life.  

Hats off to a LEGENDARY career... it doesn't get any better than what Fedor accomplished.

I still remember when I was just a little kid and a friend of mine showed me Fedor's fights. For the first time, I thought superheroes existed in real life. 

Thank you for all the great memories, Fedor ! A legend like you will never be forgotten.

Death penalty for all the people that predicted Fedor to win!
