By FCF Staff
Bellator vet and former tourney finalist Brent Weedman has reportedly announced he’s retiring from fighting at the age of 29.
The 22-9 fighter’s representatives, SuckerPunch Entertainment, made the announcement recently via Facebook.
We are sad to announce that @BellatorMMA standout @brent_weedman is retiring from MMA. Brent called us over the holidays to let us know this was a hard decision for him and he is very grateful for all the opportunities he has had along the way. With the latest addition to his family, Brent wants to simply focus on being a dad, husband and his post fight career. It has been a pleasure working with Brent and watching him climb the ranks in Bellator. We look forward to what the future holds for Brent and his family and wish them all the best! You will always have a home at SP if you decide to come back Brent! Cheers!
Weedman went 7-4 during his run with Bellator, and the only man to defeat the rugged fighter in his last five fights is Rick Hawn.
During his time with Bellator, Weedman scored wins over established vets like Dan Hornbuckle, Marius Zaromskis, and Thiago Michel Pereira Silva among others.
