"I’ve been getting a feeling, like my previously innocent spirit has become a little distracted. When I realized this, I felt like something stretched and then snapped. It might seem like a small change, but for me it was huge. I feel that I can’t continue serious training, and to perform as a professional fighter in this condition. For me as a fighter, the most important things are 'feelings.'" Read Miku Matsumoto's statement on her retirement over at MMA Rising, as translated by Roxanne Modafferi.

Brazilian lightweight veteran Jean "White Bear" Silva announced his retirement from MMA to Tatame today, citing exhaustion and his current lack of a manager, among other reasons. "After a 10-year career and 40 fights, I feel too tired to both train and manage my new training center here in Joao Pessoa... It's a very sad day for me, but sooner or later this day would have come. I think I've given my contribution to MMA, mainly in England, where I spent most of my career."

Melvin Manhoef has retired from MMA competition following his first round submission loss to eventual DREAM Middleweight Grand Prix champion Gegard Mousasi last week.

No word on whether the 32-year-old Dutch striker will continue competing in K-1, where he was last seen in April being KO'd by Remy Bonjasky.
