UFC fighter Vet Kurt Pellegrino is retiring as a fighter and he said "This might be the right decision for me."

Many was surprised when Kurt Pellegrino declared in his website that he will be retiring as a fighter. But to his close friends and families, it likely didn’t come as a surprise at all.

“I’ve been thinking about retirement since (fighting) Josh Neer (at UFC 101 in August 2009),” Pellegrino told host Ariel Helwani on Monday’s edition of “The MMA Hour.” “I’ve been talking to my wife about it since then, anyway. When it was time to do it, I just said, ‘Do it now.'”

He also mentioned that he wrote the post on his site, published it, and tried to not look back. “I wrote this thing all out and pressed send,” Pellegrino added. I left my house and drove around for a bit. That was how I dealt with it, because it was a hard thing to do. Do I want to fight again? Right now, I kind of don’t.”
