Jordan Mein has announced his retirement on Wednesday evening at a young age of 25.
Earlier this week, another young UFC fighter retired from the sport, that man, was Frankie Perez after a KO of Sam Stout in Saskatoon, Sask,. Perez was 26. In Frankie Perez’s case, he just came off his very first UFC victory against Stout, so his retirement was a shock for many fans and fighters.
Jordan Mein on the other hand, has poured his blood, sweat, and tears into the sport over 12 years in MMA. Amazing, right? He began his competitive MMA at the young age of 13 years. Mein has fought in 39 career contests, five of them being in the UFC. Jordan just recently lost to former welterweight title challenger, Thiago “Pitbull” Alves via knockout. Mein went 3-2 in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, his only other defeat coming to Matt “The Immortal” Brown. His victories though, came over Dan Miller, Hernani Perpetuo, and Mike Pyle.
Jordan “Young Gun” Mein ended his carrer with a 29-10-0 record and took home a combined two post-fight bonuses (1 Performance Of The Night, 1 Fight Of The Night).
We all wish Jordan Mein on his future endevours for the rest of his life. All the best Jordan!
