Fighter finally gets UFC contract, forced to retire immediately

by 6 years ago



Steve Bosse finally got the call up to fight with the big boys. He was ready. Too bad his body wasn’t. 

The 32-year-old Canadian MMA fighter was scheduled to make his UFC debut against Ryan Jimmo. Bosse already had a 10-1 pro-record and seemed ready to make a statement.

Then his shoulder crapped out. Bosse was forced to not only cancel the match but retire from the sport.

“My body is talking to me. It’s time that I make the right decision. When I started in hockey, I had rage in me. This sport helped me channel that. It was my therapy. Today, that rage is no longer in me. Today, I’m doing well. I don’t feel the need to fight anymore, to go make war.”

Really? It seems the rage would be with his bum shoulder.
