I had a great time, but, I think this is it for me, guys. I’m going to call it a career, probably.

“I just give it my best, I want to thank my gym and my training partners, I had a great time, a great trainer, I never thought about it but I felt like it was getting harder and I think this is it, I enjoyed it, I loved being part of the UFC.”
