Did anyone watch Ariel's video? Because in it, he DID NOT say he was retiring. He said he is going to re-evaluate his situation in 2 weeks. I am no longer a blue name so I am not going to post the video. But boy, front page of this site and this is the misleading headline being used?

Very surprising news considering how well he fought last night, but I guess only the fighter knows when it's time. If he truly does retire, thank you MTB for all of the amazing fights. He reached the pinnacle of his weight class and not only dethroned, but KOd Faber when he was considered P4P one of the best in the world. And then he beat him again. It's unfortunate he wasn't given the same treatment as Urijah after losing his belt to Aldo. He was forced to start from scratch at the bottom of the division, and unlike Faber, was given no favors when it came to getting another title shot. Leaving on a 2 fight win streak isn't a bad way to go out.

That's too bad.   I'll always love Brown for the way he handled Faber twice.  Zuffa wanted Urijah to have the belt back so bad and Brown just shut down their plans.

Other than getting his back taken in the last bit of the last round, he pretty much controlled the whole fight, and hurt his opponent several times.

He nearly lost that fight. His wrestling barely made him win
