However, the Russian legend still follows the sport, analyzing the fighters still competing. In an interview with WHOA!TV, Emelianenko broke down this weekend's heavyweight title fight between champ Cain Velasquez and challenger Junior dos Santos.
"I think that if Velasquez sticks to his usual game, he's going to become the winner," predicted Emelianenko. "His biggest advantage is that he can transition, he can switch from one to another. He's a thinking fighter."
Check out the video above to hear more from Emelianenko and make sure to check back this weekend for play-by-play and results from UFC 166.
