Not everyone believes that we’ve seen the last of Henry Cejudo fighting in the Octagon. But, for now, it seems clear the decorated fighter is moving ahead with retirement.

After stopping Dominick Cruz earlier this month at UFC 249, Cejudo shocked the MMA world by announcing he’s retiring at the age of 33. Recently the now-former bantamweight champ was removed from the UFC rankings, and Cejudo shared out this statement.

“Thank you for the awesome experiences uncle @DanaWhite. I will forever be grateful. Thank you for taking a chance on the sport that people thought would never make it. To all my coaches and fans it been a wonderful ride. Triple C is out.”

The Olympic Gold Medal wrestler went 16-2 during his professional MMA run, which began in 2013.
