Former Gophers NCAA heavyweight champion wrestler Cole Konrad, who won $100,000 as defending Bellator mixed martial arts champion, has retired from fighting and taken a job with North Central Trading as a financial trader specializing in milk products.

Helwani tweeted that Bellator will neither confirm nor deny it, but will address it shortly.

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

Well, whatever floats your boat. He fought a few decent guys, but nobody really great. Good for Cole making a $100,000 and running. Can't blame a guy not wanting to get beat up for a living.

Proof Bellator doesnt pay enough IMO, nor are thei r Champs active enough. Dude left fighting to sell milk! I wouldn't want to see him in the UFC anyways.

He's up there with my least favourite fighters so I don't overly care but it does suck to see a guy with potential leave this early in his career.

Best news we've heard all week

Anyone else see the irony of Cole Conrad selling milk products?

Good for him, it always looked like he didn't have that killer instinct fighters need to be truly great.
