Rami Aziz, 25 Announces retirement from MMA

Iraqi/Swedish fighter Rami Aziz has announced on his Facebook page his decision to walk away from his career as an MMA fighter.

Aziz (8-4 MMA) who competed last under the Brave Combat Federation banner and in 12 professional MMA bouts overall, said she gradually lost the will to compete in combat sports. Because of that, he has no desire to go on if the motivation needed to compete at an elite level isn’t there.

Aziz said his will to win hasn’t been as big as the fighter standing across the cage from him. This sports is very tough mentally, it’s tough to fight but it’s tougher when you are suffering from it. So he decided to announce his retirement via social media.

“Everything has a beginning and an end,” Aziz wrote. “Now, I put the gloves on the shelf. Some people start their career at this age but I have competed in full contact sports continually for the last 10 years. It feels the best time to stop now.”

Aziz has been a major figure on the Swedish and Middle Eastern MMA scene. Having fought in top regional organizations, Aziz made his last appearance in the cage under the Brave Combat Federation banner where he lost to Abdulkareem AlSelwady in the main event of Brave 1 “ The Beginning “.  He may have lost his last fight, but he was standing in the exact place that most MMA fighter dreams of competing.  Known for his remarkable athleticism and incredible conditioning, Aziz will always be remembered as the triathlete who loves to throw leather.

He was also spotted in the corner of fellow teammate Erik Carlsson at Brave 2. Aziz plans on focusing more on family life, developing himself as a triathlete and of course, staying in the MMA scene as a trainer.
