Bosse says that he is listening to his body and will step away from the sport. MMA Fighting with the quotes:
“My body is talking to me,” he said. “It’s time that I make the right decision.”
“When I started in hockey, I had rage in me,” he said. “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.”
Bosse got in a ton of fights during his time in hockey, earning a reputation prior to coming to MMA.
In the professional ranks Bosse managed a 10-1 record, beating such UFC vets as Wes Sim, Houston Alexander and Marvin Eastman.
