Emotional Krzysztof Soszynski implies his retirement following UFC 140 loss

Former Ultimate Fighter semifinalist Krzysztof Soszynski suffered a devastating knockout loss to Igor Pokrajac earlier this month at UFC 140: Jones vs. Machida. The loss ended a two-fight winning streak for Soszynski, and, apparently, his MMA career.

During UFC President Dana White‘s first video blog for UFC 141: Lesnar vs. Overeem, Soszynski is shown being looked over by the medical team after ths loss in Toronto. While being examined he informs teammate Mark Munoz and everyone around him that he is retiring.

“That was my last MMA fight, I am done,” Soszynski said. “It’s a shi**y way to go out.”

Also shown is the doctor continuing to ask Soszynski several questions in hopes of judging where his head was at following the knockout. “The Polish Experiment” replied by showing he knew where he was – Toronto – and the month – December – but was unaware of the date.

Munoz can also be seen telling Soszynski, “Don’t apologize,” in relation to the loss after the 34-year old continues to say he’s sorry for the lackluster performance.

“The Polish Experiment” holds a record of 26-12-1 in his career with past wins over Stephan Bonnar and Brian Stann. Whether he will stick to his statements or reconsider once he’s in a less-emotional situation remains to be seen.

    Hate to see him leave like that. Krzysztof is a game fighter who makes almost every fight very exciting to watch, the LHW division needs guys like him.

    He came out a bit too hot, tagged Igor, and then got caught himself. I don’t think you can draw much of a conclusion about the direction either fighter is going after a fight like that. Hopefully he reconsiders.

    Thumbs up gentleman.

    I too enjoy seeing the Polish Experiment in the cage, but he has talked out other interests lately. I know he’s mentioned doing the “Hollywood” thing, and in truth, I think he much better suited for the screen than Randy. Hopefully it was just the concussion speaking though.

    This guy is about as retired as BJ Penn is… We will see him back inside the cage sooner then later. Emotions after a fight are high and he just needs time to reflect.

    I am sure he will reconsider. I just read on another site that he said he didn’t even remember saying that, but at the same time he did acknowledge he was hurt and needed to speak to a doctor and see what is wrong with him before he makes his choice. Even if he does fight again though he did state it would be his last fight because he wasn’t making enough money fighting in the UFC and needed to supplement his income.

    Being a fellow Winnipegger I am pulling for our hometown boy to get the medical ok and then for him to come out and fight and end his career with a victory. But regardless if he does fight again he always put on a good fight and always came out to entertain and for that I thank him.
