If this is fo realz, then it's just to cash in on a "return" fight. He'll be back within months...he owes Frankie a fight.

They say that sport teaches you how to deal with losing, well MMA teaches you how to deal with disappointment. It's a mug's game to invest any emotion with MMA fighters. It's not their fault, the way things are, it's just a brutal revolving door not to mention the endless injuries and fluke results that mean nothing.

I hope he does, but I do think the ridiculousness of the whole interim belt business probably got to him. He is in a horrible position, a dangerous rematch that few people believe he can win and then being forced to fight 145 pounds, which I suspect is a horrific thought for him.

Maybe he was also disturbed by that Portuguese fighter who recently died too?

So you are saying there is a reason. Interesting, I thought it was just a panic retirement.
