Stephan Bonnar confirmed his retirement via Twitter on Wednesday, just a day before welcoming his son to the world. Bonnar last fought in October, falling to Anderson Silva.
“Huge thanks to every UFC fan out there! All I ever wanted was to bring ya’ll some fun….hope u were entertained,” Bonnar posted on Twitter. “Peace, love & violence.”
Bonnar semi-retired earlier this year, but took the fight with Silva because of the impact a win could have on his career. All but one of his UFC losses came at the hands of champions in the promotion.
