    He’s about three fights late. Good for him though.

    The dan kelly loss should’ve signified the end of his career.

    Rashad was a beast in his prime. It's been hard seeing him lose to guys he was better than these last couple years.

    Meh, in 6 months he'll sign with Bellator or ACB.

    Had an awesome run... TUF Champion to UFC Champion. Just glad he is hanging them up. No point sticking around being a punching bag.

    Well past due.

    He hasn't been in it to win it for quite some time.

    Good. He made a mistake in his last fight that you only see on the amateur scene. It's time.

    See you in Bellator in 9 months, where we'll be forced see the unnecessary rematch between him and Machida.

    But he had a good career, I hope we see plenty of him at the analyst table because he's got a good eye for it.

    This is a good call. I hate when great fighters look like a shell of their former self. That was Rashad for the past few years. Great career. Nothing more to prove.
