Hate to see him go, but can't blame the guy. I'll never forget his fight against Rampage, though. True warrior.

Good luck to him with the next chapter in his life.

He was a good fighter and a true veteran. He was considered one of the best during his Pride days and he really left his mark on the sport. Good for him, he should be with his family.
