Evan Dunham says that he will retire after his fight with Francisco Trinaldo at UFC Fight Night 137. Dunham posted to Instagram announcing that the fight, which takes place as part of the September 22nd event, will be his last.

Dunham wrote, “September 22 will be my last fight. I can retire from the sport that I love with my head held high. I know that I never held anything back while in the cage and September 22 will be no different. My goals and priorities have shifted throughout the years and I am ready to concentrate on building my gym, as well as any new opportunities that come my way.

I have gone toe 2 toe with many of the worlds best competitors and I am truly grateful for this. My passion for Jiu Jitsu will continue to be a driving force in my gym and at select Jiu Jitsu competitions.

I want to thank my family, friends and fans for all of your support throughout the years.”
