Nick Catone will not be competing as scheduled at UFC on FOX 15 next month in Newark. And we have likely seen the last of the New Jersey native in the Octagon. Catone has decided to retire from the UFC due to lingering injuries, mainly chronic back pain, he told MMAFighting.com on Tuesday. The 33-year-old attempted to get through camp for his bout against Vitor Miranda on April 18, but just couldn't do it. He felt like his back was only getting worse and refused to get the cortisone shots he had been taking over the years to ease his pain. (Courtesy of on Twitter)
