He is 33, not too old, I think he could have couple years left (depending of those injuries of course)



Last time he fought was in february, 2011, knocked out Gabe Ruediger with a head kick
According to an article posted on MMA junkie about an hour ago, he's announced his retirement. Sad because he was always an entertaining fighter to watch. His fights with Kelly, Reudiger and Davis were all great.

Aww man...

Damn I feel sad now, he was one of my favorites, his fights with Paul Kelly, Marcus Davis, Gabe Ruediger, Edilberto "Crocota" de Oliveira and Chris Lytle were awesome fights.

But its important to have a good health in your life, so I understand his decision. Sucks so much that this had to happen to him again and again

Hopefully he will be good financially now after fighting

All the best, Paul!

I'm sure after his latest withdrawal, the UFC told him to announce he was hanging it up, so they would not have to publicly release him. He'll probably turn up again in a UK B-League organization in 2014.

Sucks that Taylor not only pulled out of the fight, but also retired. Njoukani is tougher than his recent record suggests but a loss could still see him leaving the promotion. A win for Iaquinta would be huge for him.
