Ex-UFC Fighter Rich Clementi Decides To Step Away From Fighting

Rich Clementi has called it a career after 68 professional MMA fights. Clementi last competed at Bellator 81, falling to Marcin Held via submission.

Clementi (45-22-1) last competed in the UFC in 2009. During a 2007-08 stretch, the veteran defeated the likes of Anthony Johnson, Melvin Guillard and Sam Stout.

Well, I guess this day had to come some time Just wish it could have been on my terms but then again we all know that wouldn’t have happened because I would have always wanted just one more time under those lights. I am so grateful for the things this sport has taught me. The friends, experiences and most of all learning who I am

Clementi will continue to work with students at his Rich Clementi’s Gladiator Gym in Louisiana.
