I will always remember when he almost beat Brock and I could see money rolling in...that was until Brock somehow survived.

But hey I enjoyed his beatdown of Mir and Gonzaga!

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

You gotta give it up to the guy, he finished everyone he ever went up against, destroyed a champion in Frank Mir to become interim champ, was the first to whoop Brock's ass, and went to a heartfilled decision with JDS. Steroids aside, he accomplished enough to be content if you ask me.

I think he could have beaten anyone if he had started younger. If he was 29 right now, healthy and training full time with a good camp he'd be challenging Cain. That being said when you train and fight like him your body breaks down quickly, I bet he's in a world of pain right now.

Not surprised by this at all. Not getting any younger, constant injuries, this is easily the best decision for his health. It's good to see a fighter who knows when to hang up the gloves. It sucks that his career took the turn that it did. I would've like to see him go out in style.

Too bad he didn't get to retire on his own terms. The best of luck to him.

The dude is all but confirmed as a roider. I was never able to get behind him and I am only a little upset that we'll never truly watch him get his arse kicked like Overeem. Good riddance.

Why do you say that? Not agreeing or disagreeing just I dont know. Is it because an incident happened or just because of how he looks? just curious not starting anything.

A couple years back Shane Carwin's name was on a list of high profile people that had been receiving prescriptions from a doctor that was selling HGH (he may not have been on HGH, probably something else). He also looks like a roider and his fight style and lack of gas only helps solidify it for me. Dude is a full time engineer, how does he find time to powerlift all the time when he's meant to be training MMA?
