Philippe Nover Retires After UFC 208 Loss
– Following his UFC 208 loss to Rick Glenn (19-4-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC), Philippe Nover (11-8-1 MMA, 1-6 UFC) took to social media to announce his retirement today. Nover plans to return to school to earn his masters degree to become a Nurse Practitioner…
I want to thank the UFC, Dana White, and Sean Shelby for giving me a second chance at my dreams as a fighter. I'm officially retiring from MMA. A big thanks to my teammates and coaches over the years, as well as my supportive family and friends. I'll be moving on to focus on many other things in my life. It was an amazing run and I'm glad I tried my best at it.
I'll be starting school for my masters degree to become a Nurse Practitioner. Time to focus on my future.
