Translation: HIs current time off after facial reconstruction surgery last year might turn into retirement. "We'll see. It's kind of nice, actually, taking this time off, waking up in the morning knowing that I don't necessarily have to get punched today and I've got so many other incredible opportunities going on, so we'll see where my career takes me. I've been fighting for 12 years, training for 14. So 12 years, that's a lot. I started with absolutely nothing, literally living the American Dream. I saw the UFC on TV when I was 24, opened up the phone book, found a gym and started training. ... I was the guy sitting on the couch watching the fights, got up, went out, joined a gym. If I can do it, anybody can because I had no athletic ability from day one. Just willing to take my beating and move forward."

he was a good gatekeeper for his division. i know hes had alot of health problems. i was surprised to hear he had started fighting again after that back surgery a few years ago. i could see him doing some commentary or production stuff.

That's the way it sounds. It doesn't have to be a bad thing. Just don't waffle and make a half-assed return.

Big fan of Nate....would love to see him fight at least a couple more times before retirement.
