Fedor has discussed moving to 205, also talks about loss and merger


Props: (Via Fighters Only)

(Have you considered 205, and fight with Henderson)

 Yes I have talked about it with my manager Vadim Finklestein. But as far as I know, there is no offer made by Strikeforce to fight as a light heavyweight.

(At the end of fight, you announced your retirement, you seem motivated now. how do you feel about it now)

For me it was a disappointing moment when I lost the fight against Antonio Silva. It was not a moment of weakness but at that particular moment it was the way I felt. Back in Russia I talked about it with my management and my spiritual father and my decision now to continue fighting. I do not consider to retire at the moment. So I don’t think about my future career or playing in movies. I don’t think being a movie star is something for me. In the future I would like to be useful to people. Everything is in gods hands and the future will show what path god has in mind for me.

(How he felt about merger)

"The Strikeforce Heavy weight tournament will continue and the fighters will keep on fighting for Strikeforce. I consider myself a fighter and that’s my focus. All other things are for my management. I was not really surprised. For me it makes no difference for which organisation I’m fighting as long as I can fight," 

It was rumored awhile back that Fedor had talked about moving down for the fight with Dan Henderson, his management quickly denied the talks. But now we hear from the legendary heavyweight himself, that he has talked about the possible move down, but Strikeforce has yet to offer anything. Fedor also discusses how he feels about retirement and that he doesn't care if Zuffa now owns Strikeforce as long as he continues to fight.
