Just seen this on his Facebook

''I want to thank my family, friends, fiancé and fans for being by my side these past 13 years plus of my MMA career. Every time I fought it was to please and excite you but most of all make you proud of me. Up until a couple years ago it pleased and excited me as well. That is where I went wrong, for the past couple years I have been fighting for the wrong reasons, I don’t have the desire or drive to fight like I used to and the past couple fights have shown it. So at this point in my life I would like to officially announce my retirement from the sport of MMA. Competing has been a part of my life since I was 6 years old, now I would like to put more of an effort into seeing my students/fighters do the same and making my gym grow and flourish. MMA has taken me around the world, let me meet the best and worst of people and made me feel like the brightest star but also like a black hole at times. ..and I have no regrets because I did it all my way.''

Loved Petruzelli and made my day when he beat Kimbo against the odds!

Good Luck Seth

This is his 2nd time retiring and he probably came back because of the 100k prize being too tempting.

I thought he looked good against Mo when they were standing up, but just got caught on the ground.

Good luck with your future endeavors Seth!

Must have been the lack of solid gameplanning( is that even a word?).

Thx Seth for great career and a lot of entertaining moments to booth. Always had fun watching him fight.Still more time to prepare the entrances of Lawler could never be a wholly bad thing. Phone Post 3.0

Just 'saw' this on Facebook. Seth will always be the man that shut down EliteXC and did mma proud. Companies like EliteXC cheapen the sport & Seth deserves a metal for being the reason they closed up shop.

After nearly 13 years as a professional fighter, Seth Petruzelli will step away from the cage.

The 33-year-old Petruzelli (14-8 MMA, 1-2 BFC) made the announcement Friday morning on his Facebook page. His announcement comes following a knockout loss to Muhammed Lawal on Wednesday night at Bellator 96.

"The Silverback" goes out on a two-fight skid, with both losses coming in the first round as part of Bellator's most recent two light heavyweight tournaments.

Petruzelli, in his online statement, said has has lost some of the drive to fight the way he used to.

UFC missed the boat by not making the Seth- Kimbo rematch when both men were under contract.

For a guy whose heart wasn't in it, he sure was agressive, even if it didn't work out for him.

I've always enjoyed watching him fight and I hope he has a happy retirement.

Agree with most of your sentiment but I'm not sure he deserves a metal. Maybe a plastic or a organic wood form of some type. Definitely a award of some kind though...
