    Well, i was thinking yesterday about this forum and all nice people who was here for me when i had hard period last year. As some of you know i am fighter who survived brain stroke with 21, my left side of body was paralized and after that in order to continue with training and fights i had to do open heart surgery. Last summer one of my dreams came true, to go in Amsterdam and train with best fighters and learn something new. As i came back home i started to lose vision in my eyes. Then i discovered that i have Glaucoma. Its problems with eyes, high pressure , once it destroys Eye nerves, its impossible to come back and you stay blind. For my right eye it was late because i didnt know what is happening, in 2 weeks or so i lost 95% of my vision. I needed urgent surgery. Doctor saved 5% and then i had to fight for left eye, 50 or more % was lost and we tried to save what is left. Sherdog and my friends have helped me to go in Russia and save my eye. Now i dont want to bother with another Rocky story and comebacks. But definitely with fighting i am done. I had my own gym back then in Serbia with 40 or more students and before one month i arrived in Kuwait, as a Kickboxing coach. I am glad they decided to hire me to be on of many in team. Now what i wanted to say is that , you never know at what side o Earth life will put you, if somebody has told me that i will come and work some period as a coach i would not believe in this. My dream was fighting, only fighting and i lived for it no matter what was on my road.
    Here is video of me doing pads, after all that hurricane in my life.
    I do it only because i enjoy, not fighting anymore.



    Picture with my youngest students here :)

    I want to thank Sherdog once again for all support they gaved me all years while i was fighting and in bad times when i had problems with health. I hope as is planned one day i will hit you with my documentary video because some people think it should be done.
    I will never again follow my dreams, because life is so unpredictable. I just wish for health and nothing else.

    Edit : 3 days ago i was forced to leave Kuwait and my dream job because of health and problems again
