Josh Thomson Hints At Retirement After UFC On FOX 10 Loss

During tonight’s post-fight press-conference top lightweight fighter, Josh Thomson, shocked everyone by saying he may be done with fighting. Thomson lost a very close split-decision to Benson Henderson in the UFC on FOX 10 main event and the defeat derailed his hopes of a title shot.

“This might be it, man… I’d still be in the same position (If he beat Henderson at UFC on FOX 10) There’s a possibility [that’d I’d have turned down a title shot with a win], because what’s the point of winning the title knowing that you’re not going to fight that much longer? I don’t want to do that to the UFC either. But like I said, I’ve got to sit down with them and just talk about the direction of how this all should go. I love this sport. I love being around the guys. It’s great being in the back, and I think anybody who was in my locker room knows, I was back there with smiles just knowing this has been great. I love it, this is the best.”
