Heavyweight kickboxer, Antoni Hardonk has today announced his retirement from the sport of mixed martial arts and the Ultimate Fighting Championship, explaining he gets just as much pleasure out of coaching as he did from fighting himself.

Speaking via UFC.com Hardonk said:

“Taking that year off and focusing more on that other side and that teaching and coaching aspect of myself, I found that I get as much satisfaction from that as from fighting itself.”

Hardonk was on a two-fight losing streak when he ended his career, losing via TKO to both Cheick Kongo and Pat Barry in 2009. His impressive striking game notched him four victories inside the octagon over a three year spell including a three fight winning streak in 2008.


im confused and having deja vu i swear he already stated this like two months ago!?

eh you know how it is.... some reporter probably asked him a question... he answered it.... and it comes out like he's making a "statement" or an announcement rather... than just answering the question... would be my guess
