    It seems like all the top fighters all fight up to 40 years of age.

    Shamrock retired from UFC(not MMA) when he was the champ at 25. However guys who retire early are usually back. Look at GSP.

    Conor

    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.

    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
