I agree but he'd have to serve his suspension before he could. Guess we'll see how long it takes to file the paperwork

It pretty much had to happen with this latest drug test failure.

Love him or hate him, he made things interesting.

Yes he did. I really wanted to see who would win between him and Vitor

I have a feeling he will be like Michael Jordan to me. Hated him while he was playing but missed him when he was gone.

What a way to go out. Get popped for a failed drug test, then retire. Maybe now that he's retired, he'll spend more time on the pg.

Chael's my favorite fighter in the world.

The commission is essentially giving him a lifetime ban by allowing him to legally use TRT in the past then completely shutting that down with absolutely no way to get his levels back to normal.

I'm honestly mad, angry, sad, the whole spectrum.

Sad to see him go.
Another ufc star gone.
Glad to see him live when I could.

Best fight club Q&A ever was with him in Atlanta
Glad to see that Silva rematch live.
Also a great guy in person

Kind of saw this one coming. While we won't see him fight anymore, you can bet the farm he will remain a announcer and who knows what else with the UFC.
