Fading Russian MMA legend Fedor Emelianenko beat Satoshi Ishii by TKO in the first round at the Dream New Year 2011 event. According to reports coming out of Japan, Fedor did more than finish Ishii in that one fight, he may have ended his MMA career. Fight Opinion has the details:

Japanese weekly publication Cyzo reports that doctors have told Ishii that he suffered a cerebral edema from the NYE beating. As a result, he was warned that any further blows to the head would cause some serious damage. As Cyzo put it, Ishii is facing a retirement crisis. There had been some discussion that he would face Ricardo Arona in late March in Brazil but that fight didn't look to be in the cards. After this latest development, the MMA prospects for Ishii look to be bleak as well.

Wow... if it was trauma-related, there are some treatments for cerebral edema (surgery, diuretics etc.), but I guess there's something more complicated going on that makes them think further trauma-potential poses serious risks.

Poor guy... that's an unfortunate way to end a career.

It's not worth the risk in my opinion. Hate to see something like this happen.

Wrong. No one is to blame, especially Fedor. Just a horribly tragic situation is all

Yeah, to be honest I don't see why Fedor should be to blame. He tried to win the fight, it's not like he stomped the guy's head in or anything. He fought who the promotion wanted him to fight and he won handily.

Diuretics?

Osmotic diuretics, not the over the counter stuff.
That's the first line treatment... then in severe cases they go with surgery to reduce the fluid (but surgery can be dangerous and considered last resort).

This is a tragic side effect of a bad mismatching/fighters being fast-tracked far too quickly. Hopefully Zuffa takes note and knocks off the prospect killing fights.

It's not like Ishii wasn't an Olympic Gold medalist with a 5 degree black belt in Judo or anything, oh wait.....
