Evann Dunham has decided to call it quits in his longtime career after his fight against Francisco Trinaldo in September. Scheduled to fight in Sao Paulo, Brazil at UFC Fight Night 137, the lightweight veteran will hang up his gloves after 20 fights in UFC. Evan Dunham declared this on his Instagram:
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.
