can't he easily start his own gym?

he has the name value and credibility.

can't understand how so many fighters end up broke.

he could also push MMA products etc.

the answers to those questions probably go against the spirit of this thread which is to pay respect to the man, lol. Farewell to a pioneer!

OFFICIAL MESSAGE:

Quote:I dont where to start or have the words. I remember like it was yesterday the first time I saw a UFC and knew this was the sport for me. The first time I stepped in the cage against Moti H. and hoped that Karate shit didnt work against Wrestling. I believed in Wrestling then and still do now. The hardest thing about this sport is that you dont tell it when youre through it tells you when youre done! This latest setback is the tuffest opponnent I ever had to fight against. In all of my years I never looked accross the cage and thought that I couldnt win;that was until my hip collapsed. It pains me to tell you for the past 6 months I have been doing anything I can to make the pain go away and figure out how I am going to pay for this surgery. I had a great career and only regret is I should have worked harder.
I want to thank all who have supported me through the years. There are way to many to name them all. To name a few: my parents/daughters/family, Dana White/Joe Silva/Fertittas/& UFC/PRIDE, MMA ELITE, Josh Burns/Patino Diet, Mike D., Mike Davis UCL, Dan Lambert, and so many more. Thank You, Live Your Dream, and God Bless....MC

Dude threw like 20 consecutive knees to the top of Igor's dome until he tapped. Respek.

Mad respect and Igor is my all-time favourite fighter. He honestly did well against Shogun at only 0.5% vs Shoguns 10.5% Yah bless!

RE: Mark Coleman Retires at age 48, needs hip replacement
Fedor took Igor and Coleman's styles and improved on them. Became the GOAT.

I hated Coleman because I felt his grand prix belt was a sham. But over a decade later and not giving a shit about the sport anymore, I respect all he did to take MMA to a higher level.
