MMA Fighter Jay Hieron Announces Retirement
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 03.08.2014



Former UFC, Strikeforce, IFL, and Bellator MMA fighter Jay Hieron announced on his Twitter account that he is retiring from fighting. You can check out his tweet below.

Jay Hieron leaves the sport with a record of 23-7. He last fought at UFC 156 in February 2013 when he was knocked out by Tyron Woodley in the first round. His combined Octagon record from three separate UFC stints was 0-4. In 2011, Hieron won the Bellator season 4 welterweight tournament. He later went on to face the undefeated then-Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren at Bellator 56. Askren won the fight over Hieron by split decision.

Believing he won the fight and not wanting to go through the tournament format again to earn another shot, Hieron sought out his release from Bellator. He then fought in Legacy FC and beat Romario da Silva before signing with the UFC again in 2012. He made an unsuccessful return to the Octagon in October of that year, losing to Jake Ellenberger in their rematch at UFC on FX 5. Hieron also fought for the now defunct IFL where he won their welterweight title in 2007.
