Hamill has decided to retire

Says he doesn't have it in him to keep going.

I liked Matt.

Sucks. He was a guy I respected a lot. All the best to him in a career after fighting.

The only fighter to hold a win over Jon Jones.

After the beating he had put on him, I don't blame him. He's no more than an average gatekeeper right now at absolute best. He might not even be that good. If you don't love going out there, then there is nothing left.

I always thought he was a pretty good gatekeeper up until the Rampage fight. It was pretty clear he gave up before it started.

He was good for the sport, and I'm sure he inspired many people. I wish he would have used his wrestling more in general, but he had a solid career and gained a lot of respect. Best of luck to him.

I'm disappointed, but not surprised. His last two performances were pretty bad, so it's not surprising to hear that the desire just wasn't there anymore.
