I wish he would have given it a couple more fights. I personally thought he WON the Hooker fight and RDA was 5 days notice FFS, but if you've lost the fire, you've lost the fire and I respect that.

Why is he getting a press conference so a subpar career? There is ZERO chance of HOF. No title eliminators, no titles, nothing. 🤷🏽‍♂️

I agree with you paul. That 55 division is insane an I think anyone can beat anyone on any given day there’s not gonna be a reigning champ unless his name is khabib

Could say so much and talk a ton of crap but if there is no spark or passion to do this, then get the F off the plate. Rather him leave on his terms than taking money fights and clogging deep division of hungry men. You gotta do you.

I think the loss of desire to train is more important than anything. If you train daily - it's a lifestyle. If you train 350 days per year it's your life and the fight is just 25 minutes tops so I can see how people lose and lose but still don't wanna leave the sport cause they love the gym. But if you don't miss training it's probably time to hang up the gloves.

The strongest thing to fight is the "I can't go out on a loss" mentality. Cause you probably don't wanna leave when you're winning either... So it can be a vicious circle.

I was at Paul's pro debut for CFFC at the Resorts in Atlantic City. I've had the pleasure of hanging out with him and his family a few times over the years, and the guy is just as solid in private as he is representing the UFC in public. However else he's remembered as a fighter, Philadelphia will remember him as yet another legendary pugilist who furthered our place on the pro fighting map and did it with all the class in the world. Now he continues to do so from the commentary booth and in the legions of up and coming Philadelphia martial artists he's inspired. Thanks for an awesome career, Paul, it's been a joy to watch!

I'm not sure what the term is, maybe stoicism? But Paul's honestly and realism here takes a lot of courage and is really impressive to see. Zero ego and being completely honest. Very rare, especially for a fighter.

Dude’s got a sweet commentator gig. Why get pinched in the face anymore if you don’t have to? If he didn’t have another gig, he would still be fighting. Probably lost the will to fight after being able to sit back. 9/10 people would do the same

Absolutely understand his position, I didn't exactly reach his height but I fought for around 3 years in amateur combat sports bouts. Never lost a fight but almost got knocked the fuck out on my second amateur MMA fight which had become my last to date. The reason is as simple as I don't want to get hit in the head anymore. Luckily for me, I went full throttle on my last year with submission grappling & become the winner for 70kg (8-Man Tournament) & Absolute (4-Man Tournament) in local scene.

As a fan, i will always remember paul felder as someone who left it all in the cage, i remember when he just beat danny castillo and then met edson barboza and lost his first decision loss. He then comes back 4 years later and wins a split decision and gets it back. True heart and grit, well wishes in retirement

I really respect Paul Felder. Hell of a fighter, always ready to lay it on the line but at the same time you can hear humility and wisdom in his words. I respect even more that he felt the internal fire go out and accepted it and hung up the gloves. That is a thinking mans decision.
