    My guy Ben Askren is retiring this week and it is depressing me.

    I guess I get spared of the decline that many other fans have to deal with; but its still tough as a fan.

    So besides the Funky GOAT who else managed to leave the sport before they tarnished their legacy?

    Would have said GSP but that's possibly no longer going to be the case.

    Chris Lytle went 5-1 in his last 6 fights before retiring. Retired off a win as well. The Original Firefighter Fighter...

    He gets over looked far too often. Perhaps the most dominant champion ever.

    True but I have this feeling he isn't really retired. He is just better off sitting out until DC loses the belt rather than lose his spot near the front of the line

    Bas Rutten. Dude is was on a legit win streak. Then cameback for one last finish. Now he does stuff with Kevin James. And his acting isn't half bad.

    Lytle was definitely in the decline but still fought his ass off. I was shocked when that dude with the arrow of hair whooped his ass.
