Brent Weedman retires from MMA


When the new year comes around, a lot of people like to make big resolutions and changes in hopes of having a great year. Today, former Bellator MMA tournament finalist, Brent Weedman, decided that his new year’s resolution was to hang up his gloves and retire from MMA in order to be a better Father.

His management company, Suckerpunch entertainment, broke the news on their Facebook:

We are sad to announce that @BellatorMMA standout @brent_weedman is retiring from MMA. Brent called us over the holidays to let us know this was a hard decision for him and he is very grateful for all the opportunities he has had along the way. With the latest addition to his family, Brent wants to simply focus on being a dad, husband and his post fight career. It has been a pleasure working with Brent and watching him climb the ranks in Bellator. We look forward to what the future holds for Brent and his family and wish them all the best! You will always have a home at SP if you decide to come back Brent! Cheers!

Weedman is 29 years old and most recently fought at Bellator 104, losing to Rick Hawn by decision for the second time.
