Sean Pierson Mulling Retirement Ahead of UFC 161 Bout
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 06.12.2013



UFC fighter Sean Pierson recently spoke with reporters this week on his upcoming welterweight bout with Kenny Robertson at UFC 161. The event is set for Saturday, June 15 in Winnipeg, Canada. Below are some highlights:

Pierson on potentially retiring soon: "Everybody is struggling for me to chase my dream, and I can't be selfish forever. I'm going to have to end that soon...Start letting my son get the spotlight, and even put my wife in the spotlight ... she's a beautiful woman. I've had my moment. I've had my moment, and I'm not done yet. But when it's done, I'll step right out of it."

Pierson on potentially going into a job in law enforcement in Toronto: "I don't think the door's ever fully been closed on me. There's different forces, too. I think someone would be willing to grab me. It's just one of those things where I have to put all my chips on the table, because I do bring more to the table than I did three years ago."

Pierson on getting more comfortabl in the Octagon: "Right now, I'm coming into my comfortability in the octagon. People always say it's first-time jitters. For me, it was for a while. I had to understand I belonged in the UFC, and now I feel I belong. I'm not questioning it. I'm going to go out and perform now."

Pierson on fighting in Canada: "I want to be one of those Canadian fighters that gets a fight on all the Canadian cards. One, it's better for taxes. Two, it's just my home fan base. When I was down in Florida, it's not like I didn't feel love. But I definitely didn't feel the love I felt in Toronto or Montreal. I'm hoping to feel that love (Saturday) in the MTS Centre."
