After a disappointing light heavyweight debut for Luke Rockhold at UFC 239, should he retire?
Michael Hiscoe MMATorch Contributor
That’s three pretty nasty knockout losses for Luke Rockhold in four fights so he may want to consider retirement for the sake of his brain. Two of those three knockouts (Michael Bisping and Jan Blachowicz) came against guys who don’t have reputations as knockout artists. I’d suggest he go back to middleweight and take on a mid-level guy to see if he still has any fight left in him.

Yes; he should have done it before this fight. Nobody wanted him to win and nobody gave him a chance. There is nothing left for him to do, there is nothing left that we want to see him do. No more talk of this guy, he’s done, he’s BEEN done!

Only if he wants to. Yeah, he’s taken punishment over the years, as all fighters do, but I don’t think it’s reached the point where he’s become a danger to himself. If he were to ask my opinion for some reason, I would tell him to fight once more if he wants, but otherwise retire if he doesn’t feel the hunger to keep fighting.
