I don't know about that, you look at 11 of his last 12 fights and it's pretty crazy.
Alessio, Castillo, Grant, Guillard, Henderson, Johnson, Njokuani, Pettis, Tavares, Varner, Volkmann
going 5-6 against that field isn't to bad.
Yeah but no one really wants to be a fighter as a means to an end. Once he got that UFC contract he must have been thinking "Nice, once I get to the top I'll be taking Edgar's crown". Now it's pretty much confirmed that he'd never get to that stage and if he has other oppertunities ahead of him he might be best to end it on his own terms.
Would have been good to see the dude end on a win though.
