“I want to thank all the fans for their love and support. I have decided to take some time off to enjoy life, train and teach. I will keep you posted with what’s next.”What does this mean? Is BJ considering another fight? BJ has publicly stated several times that he was considering retirement before the Jon Fitch fight. After he lost to Nick Diaz, I was not surprised to hear him say he was retiring. But this statement leaves a lot of questions.
As always, time will tell. But as a fan, I'm hoping BJ actually retires. Watching him not train properly and gas out in every big fight is frustrating. He's a legend and he should walk away now. If his heart and mind are not committed to training properly, all the talent in the world can't win you fights when you don't prepare.
