    Anderson was one of the sport's GOAT. He started his dominant UFC run when I started following the sport so his fights will always bring fond memories for me. He's an entertainer in and out of the cage, and his finishes against Forrest and Vitor are jaw dropping. Even in his poor showings (like against Maia) he was entertainingly frustrating. His retirement (at least from UFC) signifies an end of an era, and a reminder that all good things come to an end. Best of luck to the legend

    If he goes Tito Ortiz or Cro Cop's path, that's first of many farewells

    Negotiation tactic for Scott Coker to open up his wallet.

    He doesn't even say he won't fight again

    Es normal

    Sounds like a bunch of CTE talk...

    I bet he fights Fedor in Bellator.

    The right translation is SAYING GOODBYE TO A WHOLE LIFE DEDICATED TO MY SPORT

    He told he's saying goodbye to a whole life dedicated to the sport. This seems very retiring to me.

    I hope he calls out Roy Jones Jr.


    It will be a decade too late, but still fun.


    (Or he can retire, whatever, but I’d rather see the RJJ fight than see him in Bellator if he keeps fighting)
