I don't think fighters like Nate Quarry have anywhere to go ... honestly, I'm sure he just saw the guy who dominated him like crazy (Rich Franklin) get dominated like crazy (by Anderson Silva) and probably knows at his age (around 34) that there really is not too much chance for him. People might knock my attitude for being pessimistic or whatever but I think I'm also being a realist and you hate people to go on and take beatings when they just aren't at that level. Look at Ken Shamrock ... people can say all sorts of nice things, and he has accomplished a lot, but truthfully when it's time to hang it up, go out gracefully and be at peace. Ken stayed far too long and let his star blemish. Tra Telligman falls in this bunch of people and should probably hang it up.
