UFC Welterweight Jason Witt Announces Retirement

Six-time UFC fighter Jason Witt has announced his retirement from MMA.

Witt, 35, revealed his exit from the sport via social media this week.

The welterweight is retiring from MMA after more a decade in competition, including more than 25 appearances as a pro.

“I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason,” said Witt via Instagram. “I am closing this chapter in my life, but I’m very excited for what the future holds.”

Witt first debuted as a pro in 2013. He competed on the regional scene for most of his career, appearing briefly in notable promotions like LFA, Bellator, and Titan FC.

Witt entered the UFC roster late in his career. He attained two wins through his six fights with the promotion.

He is now leaving the sport after suffering two consecutive losses this year due to finish.

Witt now says that he will chase other goals in his career. It is not known what exactly his next journey will be.

“To each and every person that has been a part of my MMA career (there’s way too many tag individually), from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU. To everyone that has followed or shown support, you are greatly appreciated […] On to the next chapter!”
