Never understood why UFC didn't give him big fights. He said he was half retired before Dana called. Why? he was 3-0 he has taken damage but not really KO'd. His last win he looked real good, strong, cardio. Was it Kingsbury?
But I think they could have done a couple older fighter fights. Vs. Wandy, Franklin, Hendo would all be good fights. I've always liked Bonnar/Lil Nog as well.
He said they didn't offer him much in the way of big fights so he lost interest.
Or maybe he just wants to hang it up. But he was looking as good as he ever had before the Anderson fight. And seemed to be still having fun. Fighters usually come back, hope he does when he's ready. Tough to have a baby and go train for weeks on end for a fight.
