It was news to Krzysztof Soszynski that he was retired from fighting.

Not that he hadn't previously considered it – but that he had announced it to the world on Monday evening.

"I'm sitting down surfing the net, and I come across Dana White's video blog," Soszynski (26-12-1 MMA, 6-3 UFC) told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "I pop it on because I'm always a fan of those things, and next thing you know, there I am."

It would make sense that the Canadian light heavyweight appears on the UFC president's blog since he fought on the UFC's most recent pay-per-view card, UFC 140. The webisodes take a behind-the-scenes look at these events and everyone around them, and as of late, they frequently feature a fighter's raw moments immediately following a fight as a doctor checks him out. Victorious or not, viewers are often privy to intimate confessions and revelations they might never hear in public.

Such as a fighter who calls it quits, as Soszynski does in the bowels of Toronto's Air Canada Centre after a knockout loss to Igor Pokrajac.

Or did he?

"The truth is, I don't remember," Soszynski said. "The last thing I remember before the knockout was going into the cage, setting up across from Igor, and then shaking hands. The next thing I remember is I'm woken up in the back, fully dressed, and (UFC matchmaker) Joe Silva came up to me, sort of gave me a hug and told me to keep my head up."

Ya, I was pretty surprised when I watched that video and he was saying he was going to retire. I hope he sticks around a little longer, but there is no shame in retiring now.
