..hasnt won a fight since the year 2000.. got destroyed by mike whitehead in his 'comeback fight' in the first round.. just got destroyed by mustapha al turk in cage rage in the first round.. i know this is the time that everybody seems to be making a 'comeback' into the sport.. but mark kerr needs to retire, IMO.. what do you think? think he still has any juice in the tank? i think hes been running on empty for a while..

I think he must need money, he's like the Mike Tyson of MMA( well not as twisted) and needs to retire,

Retiring now might save his reputation. But if he keeps fighting like Ken Shamrock. His glory days will be overshadowed by the bad times. I hope he retires soon. So we Can remember him in a good light.

I don't see much left for him; he didn't look good against Mike Whitehead in the IFL and he didn't look good this weekend by all accounts.

Honestly, he should have hung it up awhile ago. His first comeback involved taking a header and knocking himself out, then two relative unknowns pummel the crap out of him. I think hes lost the will to fight and I agree hes probably in it for money.

Best bet for him would probably be to open a school or do an IFL team.

I thought he looked in shape vs alturk, I think he just wasn't the better man that night

He might have some juice left in his needle.

i heard he was considered for a coach of an IFL team, but I haven't heard anything since.. if he is, it will probably be in the 2008 season.. I think that would be his best bet..

I think that would be the best thing for him, especially if his problem is more his heart than his body. Working with a bunch of spitfires on the mat could be the thing that gets his blood up for fighting again, and he could use a fight with an IFL coach to really propel him back into the fight world if he so wishes.

I see the IFL being the destiny of all too many fighters who will turn into coaches just cuz they are getting older.
Imagine a Chute Boxe IFL team when Wand gets old.
Sick as crap.
I dont know if Mark Kerr could come up with a decent time. Just because you have a good coach doesnt mean the time is gonna be amazing.
