“Hey guys from TATAME, I announced to you in first hand my retirement. It’s 10 years of career and almost 40 fights. I’m too tired to train and administrate my new training center here in João Pessoa. Another reason is that my manager abandoned me. It’s complicated when you lose, because you don’t have any value anymore. I had other problems that made me think more on taking care of my family and my business around here. It’s sad to me, but sooner or later this day would come. I think I already gave my contribution to MMA, specially in England, where I fought most of my career".

*wow kinda shocked by this..as i have followed White Bear thru his career..but i guess it's smart to get out when you know you should..i do hope that he keeps training guys down in Brazil..

So long White Bear... you were a pioneer of the lower weight classes.

Great fighter. Helped to pave the way for Brazilians and Japanese fighters coming over to the UK for fights.

I hope all goes well for him in his retirement.
