Steve Bosse Retires Weeks After Signing With The UFC

Canadian slugger Steve Bosse,is a former semi-pro hockey enforcer turned MMA fighter who signed a multi-fight deal with the UFC in February and was booked to take on fellow Canuck Ryan Jimmo at the TUF Nations Finale on April 16th. Bosse was forced to withdraw from the match after suffering a shoulder injury a couple weeks ago, but he has now decided to retire from the sport all together.

Bosse told a Presse that he has had some four operations and more broken hands then he can remember, he also said that his decision to leave MMA was based on the great place in life he has found himself in.

“When I started in hockey, I had rage in me, This sport helped me channel that. It was my therapy. Today, that rage is no longer in me. Today, I’m doing well. I don’t feel the need to fight anymore, to go make war.”
