lol at that guy knocking out Stout then retiring. His coaches looked like they wanted to rip the mic out of his hands

That was extremely bizarre, but understandable. If you don't have it in you to do an extreme job (which cage fighting is), doesn't really how much talent or ability you have.
Cole Konrad retired undefeated in the Bellator cage because he realized that even at the UFC level, the pay rate was terrible and having trained with guys like Brock Lesnar, etc, he probably realized that he wouldn't be nearly as dominant at that level... his heart wasn't in it so he said **** it and went for a career in commodities.

I am guessing that is what he was thinking. Tried MMA, got beaten in his MMA debut, lost his heart for it but had something to prove, so he did.
I'm interested to see whats talked about at the presser.

Yeah, I get it. I know why a mma guy would retire early because of lack of money, time away from family, injuries, etc.

But this guy has his biggest win ever then retires without telling his coaches or anything. It just seemed like he jumped the gun and was way too emotional afterwards

Rumor has it that Erick Silva was roided up and was sloppy because he can't roid anymore. To be fair almost all UFC guys have been called out for roiding at this point, but it makes sense. Based on prior fights I thought that Silva would be able to destroy Magny

This is unfair, because we have no proof, but that theory seems to make a lot of sense with Silva. I've seen that dude run through guys and look invincible, and then, nada. Maybe he's a head case?

I make $31,000 dollars a year and I have a home.

I think Magny is a tad underrated its but not impossible to conceive that Silva was roiding, since that seemed to be very standard among the Brazilian fighters.
