    Why would a professional fighter ever post something like that on Social Media is out of my reach.

    This is the era of Social Media. Hardly anything is private anymore. At least for those below a certain age.

    It's 2020 and there's nothing wrong with admitting to mental health problems.

    Getting them from head trauma from fighting is worrying, though.

    Yeah, for 14 000 to show, it may not be worth it.

    What good will come of admitting this to everybody though? Nobody needs to know this except his doctor and his family

    I assume the UFC get to know his medical records anyway (or at least the commission), so I don't think it will have an impact on his ability to get fights.

    Alot of fighters take pride in being professional, being able to cut the required weight, turn up in their best condition etc.

    I think he was trying to explain why he couldn’t do that. Not sure it was the best move if he wants to keep fighting.

    If getting hit in the head is making you depressed fighting definitely isnt for you.

    Ideally, yep, but even the low-to-mid tier pay is often too good given the lack of alternatives. I'm guessing the decision goes somewhere like "I'll get 100-200k if I fight a few more years and then I'll have savings for the transition period to the next stage".
