As Alex Caceres enters the Octagon at UFC 165, it could be one of the final times. The bantamweight recently suggested that MMA is a temporary job.
“I don’t want to do it for that long,” said Caceres on MMA Junkie Radio. “Once I hit a certain age, I just don’t want to do this anymore. Fighting is very nice, but then again, from the beginning, I am a martial artist, and I’ll do that my whole life. But fighting is something that I’m doing in the time being.”
The 25-year-old expects to be done fighting in five years.
Caceres had three straight wins, but the last one was overturned to a no contest when his drug test came back positive for marijuana. He’s now 8-5-1 NC and challenges Roland Delorme this weekend.
Delorme has taken three wins for the promotion. Earlier in the year, he got the decision over Edwin Figueroa.
They’re set for the prelims of UFC 165. It’s September 21 from the Air Canada Centre.
