Yeah my guy is retired and I played with him online. And dudeabides:
Yes you have to retire.
I retired after 40 fights ending with a 12 fight win streak.
No you can't stay and rack up stats.
Thanks, it finally happened to me, Dana White saying I had a year to go. Stat cramming here I come, screw the cred stuff. My fighter hasn't aged a day since we started though. I made him 18 at the beginning, being new at this, cause I thought it would give him more years than if I made him my age, but nope, the never able to please boss Dana is asking an 18 year old middleweight champ, with several ko's of the night and one fight of the night to retire.
