It seems like all the top fighters all fight up to 40 years of age.
Conor or Honda.
Phillip Miller 16-0
gsp left when he was like 33
George left on a win streak and with the respect of fans and peers.
Edit: Not a top 3 fighter but...
Nick the Ninja of Love Denis.
Anybody remember this sick finish?
Shamrock retired from UFC(not MMA) when he was the champ at 25. However guys who retire early are usually back. Look at GSP.
Tj grant 29 yrs old.
Somewhat offtopic, anyone know the name of the guy who retired after his very first UFC fight?
GSP retired number 1. Although he's coming back so there goes that . Conor may not come back so him.
Cathal Pendred - youngest UFC legend to retire
Only one I can thinik of is Mark Hughes (brother of Matt), although he had a couple more fights outside of the UFC.
Wasnt top 3 but Jordan Mein retired at 25
Chris Holdsworth - age 26 (not top 3)
Olympic Gold Medalist Mark Schultz after beating Gary Goodridge retired from the ufc with an mma record of 1-0
Cody Phister @ 26 y/o
Correct answer but not what i was thinking of, it was fairly recently. Young guy had his first fight in UFC and looked fairly impressive, then retired in the post fight interview saying it was his dream to reach the ufc and that he accomplished it of something
EDIT: Frankie Perez. KO'd Sam Stout in his debut in under a minute then retired, after which Bisping trashed him quite a bit
