Thanks everyone for your support. Disappointing performance to say the least. I thought about this a lot recently and that was my last fight. I can no longer compete at a high level. It’s been a hell of a ride. I’ve gone places and seen things I never thought I would. I’ve had a chance to make friends and memories all over the world. MMA gave me a life I only could have dreamed of. I will now focus on helping the next generation become successful and finally getting my BJJ black belt. – Patrick Healy
