From where Nogueira sits, though, perhaps Emelianenko should stay retired. Nogueira, in Melbourne for Saturday's UFC Fight Night card, was asked by Australia's Submission Radio what he thought about "The Last Emperor's" continued fight career and suggested Fedor may have been better off retired.

"If he got to the UFC five years ago, maybe seven years ago, something like that, he'd be in his prime," Nogueira said. "But now, it's not his time go anymore. If I'm in his place, It's time to retire."

This coming from a guy who was no longer offered fights from his employer and was basically forced to retire himself.
