UFC News: Charles McCarthy Retires

UFC mccarty bisping

Who says Bisping isn’t tough, it looks as though he retired his latest opponent. In a prepared statement, the 27 year old, UFC fighter Charles “Chainsaw” McCarthy has announced his retirement from the sport of Mixed Martial Arts.

“I would like to announce my formal retirement from Mixed Martial Arts competition…I have achieved many of the goals I set out to accomplish in this sport and found others just out of reach. It is now time for me to lay down my gloves and rededicate my attention towards my business, my fighters, my family and my team.”

“The successes I have found in my career are due in large part to all the great people who have helped me along the way. Being involved with the true champions at American Top Team has guided me to become a better father, husband, teacher and friend. Without the great generosity of ATT my life would have had a void. I hope that everyone reading (this) can one day feel the love of a great family as I have.”

“It’s something that was in the back of my head a little bit…We train so hard and we put so much time into it. I figure I’ve worked since November to do this and there’s so many other things going on in my life that I put on the back burner since November. You know, at the end of the day, that paycheck that used to be enough, isn’t enough anymore.”

“I have a gym full of guys that need my attention, so I plan on giving them as much of that as they can possibly handle…I think out of everything that’s what I enjoy doing the most and I’d like to be able to focus my attention on that….hank you to all who have supported Mixed Martial Arts. You have helped me live out a childhood dream of being a professional athlete. I am proud to say that in some small way I helped to grow our great sport and entertain fans across the world. Some of the best friends I have made throughout my career I met on the other side of the cage. I would like to thank them for the opportunity to compete with them and entertain the fans.”
