Said they made a deal that win lose or draw he would retire after this fight but he didn't. So Dana said he is forcing him to retire.

WTF? He's 35 not a spring chicken but definitely could fight 3 more years or so if he wanted.

Lauzon is not a competitive fighter. He went out on an easy win and should enjoy that. It’s time to move on.

How can he force him to retire? He can release him but make him retire? Shouldn't be a promoter's choice.

Huh? Lauzon said he’d retire if he lost. But even in the pre fight interview you could tell he didn’t want that to happen. He comes out and has a great, dominant performance. Bj penn should retire. Joe Lauzon should not, he earned another fight at least

This. Joe gets one of the most dominant wins of his career and is forced to retire. Chris got GnP'd by backhand slaps and will probably fight Thiago Santos next.

I'd love to know your definition of competitive if a winning record in the highest league on the planet doesn't qualify.

Wait, are we still saying that? The UFC is the most competitive, highest league on the planet? 
I think they are more entertainment based than competition based. Highest league on the planet could be ONE these days

What did yoi expect from a man who is honestly conflicted with what to do with his career? Probably a ton of different emotions going through his head.

I like that he still triggers you basement dwelling homos.  I hope they keep Dana as long as he wants to stay...and pay him 10 times more than the highest paid fighter!! Money well spent!!!

I love Joe Lauzon, and I've thoroughly enjoyed his career. I'm also worried he might stay too long, and I don't want to see that.

Sounded like he is starting to get a little punch drunk. Dude has been in some wars.

I just think it was because he was getting emotional, which usually he doesn’t

He sucks at his job these days. He’s a promoter that does nothing but demote his fighters. The last time he actually promoted a fight was May/Mac

Retire at 35? Maybe he enjoys making around 6 figures (or close to it) per fight.  He’s got a family to take care of.  You don’t know his financial situation.  He can still knock guys out in the ufc.  That means he’s still a top fighter.  Not top 10 by any means but if you can beat guys in the ufc, you’re still able to fight at the highest level.  There are people in worse situations
