UFC bantamweight Aljamain Sterling is currently ranked 6 in the division, has a three fight win streak and two finishes. Yet, he’s not feeling so great about the way things are going right now.

Sterling took to Instagram to vent his frustration. Sterling posted a photoshopped image of him saying that he might have to retire and get a full time job because he can’t get anyone to fight him.

He wrote a pretty lengthy caption, explaining why he’s so frustrated.

Ain’t that some ishh?? Working my butt off every time I go to practice with dreams of winning #UFC gold since I was a college student. Training and studying instead of partying. Not doing drugs and not chasing females around because I had one true goal. A burning desire to finally be the best in the world at something. Came up short for High School wrestling, and college wrestling. Now this “is my shot” is slowly starting to feel like this “was my shot.” I’m a realist and in doing the math, I will not be able to have a financially stable future if things don’t change. I teach my students to focus on what you can control and the only thing in my control right now is furthering my education and hoping I get my big break into MMA. This sport has so many ups and downs, it’s highs and lows, and overall great experiences and perks of being a UFC fighter. With that said, it doesn’t last forever and if you aren’t at the top of the game in your division, count your blessings if you’re able to retire with any money, and with your body and brain intact. Ultimately, this path was my choice and I have no regrets. Just things I’d like to do better and recommend others to do better than I did. At the end of the day. I love this game…
