Just watched your fight and it hurt to see you get submitted! I’m not an MMA guy myself but a serious fan of the sport.
I too know what its like to feel like you are “getting old”
In my industry I’m kinda like you, an icon, but I must admit it is hard to see other guys come up and take over. We all have our time in the sun and yours, or mine, does not have to end.
You are an ambassador for the sport of MMA and a true class act. When we see many kids coming up who are just “fighters” you are a serious legend that is to be respected and admired. Regardless if you fight again, or not, just remember that you have such a platform to encourage people (both young and old) please know that you inspire me.
You seem like such a fine person, so don’t lose hope my friend, there is much more in your future…in and out of the cage!
Thanks for being such a class act.
