On Monday, former UFC middleweight champion Rich ‘Ace’ Franklin decided to officially announce his retirement.

Franklin is a legend in the sport, known as the guy who went from being a high school match teacher to a UFC champion. The guy who earned his nickname, ‘Ace’, for his uncanny resemblance of actor Jim Carrey, went undefeated for the first 14 fights of his career. After his first loss, to Lyoto Machida in 2003, he went on an 8 fight win streak which included winning the UFC title and defending it twice.
