Edwards Arreola

Yves Edwards, fan favorite, MMA veteran, and the self proclaimed Thug-Jitsu master recently retired after nearly 20 years of fighting professionally.

Edwards discussed his last bout, a submission loss against Akbarh Arreola, with Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour, where he revealed he didn’t remember parts of the fight.

“As soon as I was fully conscious of what was going on, I don’t…I remember standing up from my butt, and [wondering] how in the hell did I get knocked down — like, what the hell? And then I don’t remember…I remember my leg being caught in the air. I haven’t really watched it, but I remember my leg being caught in the air and remember being in an armbar thinking I was in practice.

“And then as soon as I was coherent, I said, ‘I think I’m done.’”
