Following UFC on FOX 12 Defeat, Kyle Kingsbury Retires From MMA

July 27, 2014 11:46 am by BJPENN.COM News

Last night on FOX, Kyle Kingsbury made his return to action after two-years on the shelf.

Things didn’t go his way.

After three grueling rounds of action, Pat Cummins was able to decisively beat Kingsbury, sending him into retirement.

Following the bout, Kyle explained:

“I’m not sure if it was the time off or the fact his wrestling is so good, that I was never able to get comfortable in the octagon. He set his takedowns well, and I really couldn’t do much to stop them. That was definitely my last fight. I told everyone I didn’t want to be a .500 fighter, and so enough was enough. It didn’t make sense to get beat up anymore.”

Kingsbury leaves MMA an 11-6-1 overall record.
