Nik Lentz officially calls it a day.
Lenz Announcement of retirement on social media Immediately after his split decision, which was defeated by Mofsalevloev in a catchweight match at UFC257 last night.
Lenz absorbed a lot of damage especially during combat, including the bloody right eye.And lost a significant portion of his eyesight Eye pork suffered last year Against Arnold Allen, the veteran wanted to see if he could finally compete again.
It turned out that was not the case.
“They say they don’t make a rush decision after a loss, but this is neither rush nor quick about that. The injury I saw last year was the ender of my career. Total vision. I lost about 40% of it, but I wanted to see a new look at what another fierce battle would look like. Last night it was clear that it was no longer possible for me to compete at this level. I couldn’t fix it to a moving target and 40% of my eyesight was virtually gone … it’s at least chaotic 🤣
“My life as a fighter in the best organization on the planet ends here. I don’t feel sad or upset by it, the day comes for everyone. I raise my head Standing. God is my Redeemer, my children and wife are my treasures. The fight gives them those treasures and only asks for a little vision as a payment. The deal I do 100% of the time.
“Thanks to my fans, coaches, family, and everyone who participated in this process. Who knows what’s coming next to Kearney … but I’m not what it is I can tell you. Love, Kearney 🎡👊🏼 @ UFC # UFC257 ”
