I'm not surprised he is concerned. With all the money he earned, he would be a fool to not want to enjoy it as long as possible.

Prolonged leave of absence? :( he should spend this time getting the necessary tests to see what kind of condition his brain is in and come back when his baby is born as planned. Sooner the better

That's not good news at all. I hope all is well with him and he comes back soon, 10 months is seeming like forever so far

I would be a great loss if he would stop fighting at such a young age, but I could understand that. I wish him nothing but the best. He provided some great entertainment to the fans and haters.

It's one of the risk being in a combat sport. I think all fighters should undergo test to see if they are still fit to fight. If there is an inkling that a fighter is at risk, then that fighter should retire to prevent further complications.

I would feel bad if he retires. But I would totally understand since it is a very valid reason to do so. And besides he has already made a contribution in MMA history.
