Stephan Bonnar UFC 139It appears Stephan Bonnar‘s days in the UFC Octagon have come to an end.

According to UFC President Dana White, following his last fight at UFC 153 in Brazil, Bonnar has decided to call it a career.

Speaking to fans during a Metro PCS chat, White revealed that the former Ultimate Fighter season 1 finalist has decided to retire after his loss to Anderson Silva in October.

“Yes, Bonnar will be retiring now,” said White.

If Bonnar’s days in the UFC are indeed done he walks away with an 8-7 record inside the Octagon, including his iconic fight against Forrest Griffin at the Ultimate Fighter 1 finale that is still regarded as one of the greatest fights in MMA history.

Bonnar had been contemplating retirement prior to his last bout as he was only gunning for a major fight if he returned. He got that chance facing Anderson Silva at UFC 153, but the fight ended with Bonnar defeated by TKO in the opening round.

Following the fight, Bonnar flew home with UFC President Dana White to get home in time for the birth of his first child.
