When Mike Brown Looks Around, He Sees His Cohorts Retiring

By Sherdog.com Staff Jun 1, 2012
Mike Thomas Brown, on “The Savage Dog Show,” discussing what he’ll do when he retires: “I’ve thought about it a lot because I’m getting there. I don’t know how much longer I want to do this. I’m 36. I think I’m probably the oldest guy below 170 pounds in the UFC. ... I realize that I am getting up there. It’s funny, I’m starting to see all these guys I grew up with, fighting or when you go to other shows ... I’m seeing them all retiring. It’s really weird, getting to that age where we’re all at a different point in our lives now. It’s kind of neat and sad at the same time. But I’m doing other things. I’m going to coach here for sure at American Top Team. This is where I’ve been forever and this is where I became champ. I love everyone here. I want to coach here. I also just opened up a fight shop as well, locally here, Only One Fight Shop. I’m doing that as well. I’m doing some things in the business. It’s my passion. When I’m involved with fighting, it’s not working. It’s pretty cool to be able to actually survive and make money at something you would do for free.”
