The Bostonherald's reporting UFC heavyweight Christian Morecraft(7-3) is calling it quits at just 26 years of age. The 6'6 team Bombsquad standout leaves with a 1-3 UFC record, and on the heels of a 2 fight(KO) losing streak, with his latest defeat earning him(and Pat Barry) "fight of the night " honors. Incredibly, Morecraft has never seen the third round in 10 pro fights, winning or losing all 10 fights by some form of stoppage. An exciting but raw talent, i wish him all the best and sincerely thank him for all the entertainment, quoted is the Facebook message announcing his retirement.

"To anyone who still follows, competing in the UFC is a tough job on many different levels - getting better staying focused and all the other (expletive) that life brings to you and not to mention I still have to work a full time job to support yourself in the mean time. There's plenty of "ex professional athletes" out there who are lost , broke, and jobless when competing is over, so with that being said trying to find an easier way to make a living and most importantly be happy so with that being said I'm saying GOODBYE TO THE FIGHT BUISINESS for right now. Nothing's set in stone because we all know that nothing in life is, but for now I've got some other matters to take care of. Thank you all for your support over the years. Thank you and god bless everyone."
