Did you ever think you would see the day where...

Fedor got released from an MMA promotion?

This is such a surreal moment, I can't believe his time is finally over.

 Reeased =/= not re-signed.

Semantics, but yeah... I mean no.

He wasn't released.

His contract ended.

He (M-1?) turned down the new contract offer.

shrug

So did he have two contracts? One with Strikeforce and one with Showtime? I don't see how Zuffa could sever a Fedor/Showtime contract.

It is very sad but personally I wouldn't mind seeing Fedor ride out the rest of his career smashing cans and collecting paychecks in a smaller org.
