Following His UFC on FUEL TV 6 Loss, Tom DeBlass Announces Retirement
Posted by Larry Csonka on 11.14.2012



- According to mmajunkie.com, UFC middleweight Tom DeBlass is retiring from fighting following his UFC on FUEL TV 6 loss to Riki Fukuda. Here is what DeBLass had to say about his retirement…

"After a lot of talk with my family and coaches, I have decided to retire from fighting and focus on my family, my academy and helping my students to achieve their goals. I have had the opportunity to win the Pan American games, the No Gi World Championships, and National Championships, the Abu Dhabi trials and compete in Abu Dhabi. I have competed all over the world at 30 years old. I fought for Ring of Combat and won their titles. I made it to UFC in a year and a half.

I know I am nowhere near my prime, however I feel my time is better spent elsewhere. At this time I feel it's best for me to give my time to others, and spend more time with my family. The drive to keep fighting is not there any longer. I have an amazing academy and feel my students need my full attention. Maybe I will return to jiu-jitsu competition. Thanks to everyone for the support. It's been an awesome ride. God bless."
