Paul Fielder is one of the UFC’s most respected and feared fighters. Or rather it was. This is because the Irishman has officially announced his retirement from MMA competitions. In fact, during the last UFC fight night comment (Vegas 27), the guy officially announced that he would no longer fight inside the octagon. It is clear that Fielder will continue his career as a commentator in the UFC.

UFC, Paul Felder officially announces his retirement
“Since I encountered Dan Hooker in New Zealand in February, the fire came back a bit when I had to face Rafael dos Angus with 5 days notice. I thought I had the urge to come back but since then I have spent most of my days swimming, cycling and running. I have enjoyed the moments with my family. And my new job as a commentator.I feel like I’ve reached that point where I no longer feel the urge to fight for many more years to win the title.I’ve always said that if I don’t win the title in the last year, I will retire to be close to family and friends, even to save myself. General, I feel physically fit, I love UFC with all my heart for all it has given me, for all the opportunities I have had to work and sit here, next to this office, something that I have always wanted to do and will continue to do.I have officially pulled out of MMA and UFC.
I came to be number 6 in the world and I was about to fight for the belt, I ran into some of the strongest players in this division and I really want to thank all of my opponents. And I also want to apologize to all the men behind me, the guys who can’t wait to fight. I am officially holding back because it is not right to prevent a split. On the contrary, I would like more people to follow the example of me. this is how I feel now. I love my fans, producers, teammates, UFC, and Dana White. I love this company and all it has given me, the life it has guaranteed me. Fielder said.
