In the weeks leading to up to his Saturday night bout with Randy Hedderick at "Ultimate Chaos" in Biloxi, Miss., Affliction vice president Tom Atencio had said his second professional MMA contest would also be his last.

After being visibly rocked and dropped to the canvas early in the bout, Atencio probably wished he had stopped with just one.

But after battling back to earn a TKO win at the close of the second round, Atencio told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) that he hasn't ruled out another trip to the cage.

Atencio did impress me with his victory at Ultimate Chaos. But the guy needs to put all his time into keeping Affliction alive. He's in his 40's his MMA career is practically over, he's not Randy Couture.

Id like to see Atencio fight again, he had a lot of heart for someone who doesnt need to fight.
