Gary finally gets paid, but it's $9,000 short for taxes......something that has never been taken out before.

And he announces his retirement.

Thanks for the memories, big guy!

"After a year of trying, MMA veteran Gary Goodridge has finally been paid for his bout with Gegard Mousasi at the New Year's Eve Dynamite!! 2009 event in Tokyo. It took a public back-and-forth and several missed deadlines, but FEG paid the outstanding debt, minus deductions for applicable taxes, so now Goodridge is happy. Sort of.

"They gave me $9,000 short," Goodride told MMA Fighting on Thursday.

"They came up with some kind of Japanese tax, I don't know what they did. They sent me a breakdown of it, but it's just tax. I've never paid these taxes before in my life. But they're having problems, the company is having problems, so I'm glad to get paid, absolutely. Should I keep my mouth shut? No. But thank you very much, it took you a year and then you're $9,000 short. I'm happy, but in the same breath, they cheated me."

"I'm done. I'm just looking for a job. I'm going over some legal stuff right now and then just trying to get a job and relax. I'm 44. I'm done."

Fucking scumbags.

It saddens me that the Japanophiles on this and other forums make excuses for FEG cheating fighters out of their hard earned money. In my book, they are only a slight step up from the absolute sleazebags who bilked fighters at Impact FC, Nemesis, and the rest of their ilk.

The finality of Gary's career is a great example of karma. Gary was possibly the dirtiest big name fighter in mma history and is ending up broke and punch drunk. In a way I feel bad for the man.

What happens when an MMA fighter retires. What does Gary Goodridge do now for money. It's not like he made a ton of money when he was fighting.

He finds a job and goes to work. That's what happens when an MMA fighter retires.
