Murilo Rua lost to Tom Watson on the third round of their middleweight championship bout on BAMMA 6. That marks his second loss in a row, and 4 out of his last 8 bouts, dropping his overall MMA record to 20-12-1. Shortly after the bout, 'Ninja' took to twitter and announced his decision to retire from professional Mixed Martial Arts.

His farewell twitter post is after the link.

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.
