Report: Recent UFC Addition Steve Bosse Announces Retirement
By FCF Staff
After having to withdraw from his UFC debut due to injury, light-heavyweight Steve Bosse has reportedly decided to retire from fighting at the age of 32.
Bosse, who made his name as a fighter in semi-pro hockey before transitioning into MMA, was scheduled to fight Ryan Jimmo April 16th. The Tristar fighter had to withdraw due to a shoulder injury, however, and subsequently announced his retirement to La Presse.
The Quebec native cited the numerous injuries he’s incurred over the years as a contributing factor. Bosse plans to focus on his career as a firefighter.
“The Boss” went 10-1 during his pro career, and during that run the powerful fighter scored wins over UFC vets like Houston Alexander and Marvin Eastman.
Bosse hadn’t fought since May, 2013, when he stopped Caleb Grummet.
