    So he retired to " I’m going to go home, have fun, enjoy my family, enjoy my dad, enjoy my sister, my brother, my niece, my mom and go see my family in Miami. I just want to enjoy life for a little bit.”"

    Or am I missing something?

    translation: UFC is the major leagues and we still have to have 2nd jobs.

    IIRC that's pretty much the same reason John Cholish retired. Good for him, though. Any time a guy can walk away with his health on his own terms is fine with me.

    "Who knows what will happen later"
    "I’ll be back in the gym this week"
    "I just want to enjoy life for a little bit"


    He didn't retire. He wanted to do something to get more attention.

    He beat a guy whose years past his best and wants to act tough and duck top fighters at the same time. Good riddance.

    yeah, and why ruin your health and get CTE when you have skills and a way to make money apart from fighting?

    Well he could get in via the famous fights category.

    Those stout-fisher fights were awesome.

    So long Frankie Perez...

    Can't say I'll miss him, considering I didn't know who he was before this fight.
