Josh Thomson Says He's Considering Retirement
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 01.26.2014



Josh Thomson spoke last night following his split-decision loss at UFC on FOX 10 and said he's considering retirement. Check out the highlights:

On whether the loss is motivating his thoughts on retirement: "I'd still be in the same position. There's a possibility (I'd turn down the title shot), because what's the point of winning the title knowing you're not going to fight much longer? I wouldn't want to do that to the UFC, either."

On last night's fight compared to his loss to Gilbert Melendez in 2012: "The Gilbert fight, that, to me, was a close fight and could've gone either way. This fight, I feel like I won. And I won with one hand. I beat the former UFC champion, a guy who was there for two years, and I beat him with one hand. That's what pisses me off."

On considering other ways to be involved with MMA: "I've got to sit down with (my team and the UFC) and talk about the direction of how this all wants to go. I love this sport, I love being around these guys, I love being in the back. Everyone in my locker room knows, I was back there with smiles this is great. I love it. This is the best. Honestly, I'd love to work for FOX and do some commentating I just want to be a part of it."

On not wanting to overstay his time: "I love the sport. I don't want to stop. I still want to be around it. But everybody needs to know that their time has come. Maybe it's not mine right now, but I also don't want to be that person who fights until they don't know when it's time to quit."
