Hey guys, so Cejudo has claimed he is retiring, but does anyone actually think so

I've done my best to give the argument for both sides

What do you think?

Maybe. Nobody knows for sure. He may stay retired. He might take a few years off and come back later because he is bored. Maybe he turns around and fights Aldo by the end of the year.

MMA fighters nowadays seem to retire more times during their careers, than the times that I said that I would quit MMAtycoon...

I hope not. All cringe aside, he's one of my favorite fighters. I don't think he beat DJ in the rematch, but every fight since then he's surprised me in each of his fights.

He is only 33y and at his peak. Personally i would like him to continue to see how far up the GOAT of the midgets he can climb. He is probably top 3 already in his weight class, i still think DJ is higher up that list, even though he lost to him, simply due to his continuity.

He is not.

 

He retired somewhat early from wrestling. Unless they decide to set him up a money fight at 145 vs Alexander I don't see why he would come back to fight for the same pay to fight bigger and stronger opposition at 135. He believed it is High Risk Low Reward and he is getting older and has left the sport without becoming a vegetable. He neat Demetrious Johnson, Marlon Moraes and Dominick Cruz and left on top. Also he stated that he wants to get involved in real estate irl. Nothing left to prove.

Meh, he has a lot left to prove. You gotta stay on top not just make it to the top and leave. He barely defended any Title, and the Cruz stoppage was absolute shit. He could have had a few more fights to prove he was truly the best, he has a ton of contenders at 135 and 125 and obviously dodged the Benevidez rematch which he should have wanted to avenge that loss.

He can say what he wants but in 5 years his name will barely be remembered by most.

We're not forgetting Cejudo anytime soon, for better or worse. Great fighter. Picked him to beat DJ when DJ knee fucked him lol.

Probably a financial move more than anything else.  Professional athletes not getting nearly compensated enough.  If the company generates enough money for Dana White to own 20+ ferrari's, it makes more than enough money to pay most of the top half of it's employees nearly double.

 

If MMA paid better I would of given it some serious thought when I was younger. Crafton Wallace was paid like 2500/2500 to fight on UFC Fight Night. That's horse shit, even if it was in 2006. I think he might of made up to 5000/5000. Both fights were short notice, he's a WW and it was at MW vs Martin Kaampan and Nate Marquardt.

Ehhh idk, after the fight Henry went on a 6 fight win streak, including winning the title against DJ, and going on to KO Dillashaw, Moraes, and Cruz. Bennevidez stayed at 125 and went 4-2, losing to Sergio Pettis and getting KO'd by Figueiredo. 

 

I get why you're saying but Benevidez not being and big money fight, and losing those 2 fights, its hard to say that Henry really ducked. More like he just didn't care. 

 

IF Benevidez had also been on a 6 fight win streak, was the 125 champ, and even willing to go to 135 for Henry, then id agree hard dodge. But thats not how it happened.
