Josh Thomson and retirement crazy talk
One of the most bizarre things i've ever heard come out of a fighter's mouth was when Josh Thomson was talking about retiring before the Benson fight. and then seemed to mentally break after the fight and all but quit.
He hurt himself in a fight that most people thought he won. He was already no.1 contender. He's top 3 in a division that's absolutely stacked. He worked his entire life to get to the top of the mountain. He's a few steps away, and now he's talking about just giving up?
What do you think about this? He clearly has the tools to be champ. But what goes on mentally with a guy that is so close and yet doens't seem to want it anymore? He's still talking like this too. He said he's not looking at retiring, probably has at least 1 more good fight after Green. ... ... ... ... ...
If he wins should he face cerrone for #1 contender spot?
