Evan Dunham Says He’s Mentally Prepared For Retirement
“I think I’ve prepared myself mentally pretty well for it. I knew going into it, win, lose or draw I was going to be proud of myself, and I already know what I’m going to do. … I have a responsibility to myself and the fighters coming up behind me, that when your body is telling you it’s time to quit, it’s time to hang it up. That’s what I’m doing, and I’m very happy with my career, and I wouldn’t change a single thing.”
Dunham has been known for his exciting fighting style. He has earned four “Fight of the Night” bonuses and one “Submission of the Night” bonus. In his career, he earned six submission wins and three knockouts. At one point, Dunham was a hot young prospect with a record of 11-0. He may have not won championship gold for a major promotion, but there is no denying his toughness inside the Octagon.
