News hit last week that top heavyweight star and former Pride champion Fedor Emelianenko had his eyes on a seat in the Russian Parliament that would soon bring an end to his mixed martial arts career. Despite a lot of heavyweights breathing a sigh of relief that Fedor could be gone soon, the report is false and the Stary Oskul native will still be reap havoc in the MMA world for the foreseeable future.

Fedor's involvement in the political machine in Russia is true, although according to M-1 Global's Director of Operations, Evgeni Kogan, news of his retirement is completely overstated.

Kogan broke down Fedor's nomination to go to the Russian Parliament for his region in Russia, and how he didn't actually volunteer himself to get involved.
