Mark Holst's "Boots" are indeed made for walking, in this case walking away from MMA. The former UFC fighter, who was cut by the promotion after an 0-2 stint in the promotion, announced yesterday he will retire from active competition after what is expected to be his final fight on January 28. He plans to focus on tournament competition and opening a new martial arts school.

I bet he fights within 2 years. He will need the money. Running a gym is a mother.

it's cool, i knew the news already about a month ago. He's not retiring from martial arts though, he's got 4 tournaments lined up for the rest of the year, bjj and muay thai. I'm sure he'll be back at some point he's still young he's got time to work on what he needs to improve.
