    He showed pretty damn good grappling against Akhmedov...

    Well, good luck to him, I guess.

    Who?

    Not to be rude but what were his greatest achievements, etc. I don't recall the name.

    Sad, he wasn't amongst the top but he's a tough guy man, i underestimated him a lot of times, if he base this off his last fight i don't agree with the retirement.

    He only had 2 UFC fights and he lost both.
    He lost to Tor Troeng in a Swedish org, and he beat Magnus Cedenblad years ago.

    These Swedes retire young. Was surprised with Troeng retiring too. Both only 32 years old. Must have good potential in other careers.

    Troeng is a mathematician affiliated with a quite large university (large in Sweden, that is). I'm pretty sure he'll have no problems making money.
