He had some exciting match-ups if the UFC optioned him, imagine Kyle vs Nedkov

Kyle just never seem to pull threw in the big fights. He still has a ton of fights in him though I hope he thinks it over and reconsiders

Yeah, I was thinking that too, take the rest of the winter and spring off, comeback in the summer, be nice to see him take on Rumble in WSOF.

I dont think fighters should make major career decisions 5 minutes after losing a fight

That kind of extremely high emotional response is illogical at best. The guy needs to learn the ground game or accept the fact that he is never going to go far. He's got a big right hand...so what.

I completely agree. Unless this is something he's been contemplating for a long time now I think he should wait on it and see how he feels in a few months.

I'll wait until I hear it from his mouth as opposed to a tweet by Ariel

Hes a nice dude if you talk with him on twitter and hasn't had too many easy fights in his career. Mousasi and Cavalcante aren't exactly chumps
