Speaking on ‘Instagram‘ Hall said:

“It is with great sadness that I will be stepping away from the greatest sport in the world.”

Hall went on to thank UFC staff, Dana White, his team, coaches, friends and family.

Flyweight: Nina Nunes (11-7 MMA)

Nina Nunes, 36, is hot off a split decision win over Cynthia Cavillo (9-5 MMA) last Saturday, August 13th. Following the match ‘The Strina’ removed her gloves and left them in the center of the Octagon, a symbolic sign of retirement.

Speaking to Daniel Cormier at the post fight press conference, Nunes said:

“As a fighter, I think I’ve done what I wanted to. It started as a hobby. I got all the way here. I’m going to focus on coaching and bringing up those girls that are struggling right now.”

Nunes went on to say that she and her wife, Amanda Nunes, would like to grow their family, the two currently have a daughter, Raegan.
