UFC welterweight Alan Jouban appears to be starting to think about life after fighting.
Responding to former foe Mike Perry's Twitter callout for a rematch, Jouban respectfully declined the offer and hinted at potentially looking towards retirement.
I might be riding off into the sunset my friend. Getting too old for this!— Alan Jouban (@AlanJouban) February 7, 2021
The 38-year old Jouban is 8-5 inside the Octagon with notable fights with Perry, Ben Saunders, Belal Muhammad, Niko Price, Gunnar Nelson, and Warlley Alves. He also won his latest outing defeating Jared Gooden at UFC 255 via a unanimous decision, but Jouban is no stranger to success outside of the cage. He signed a modeling contract with Versace in 2016, has flourished doing analyst work for the UFC, recently even trying commentating for the LFA, and starting a new MMA podcast with radio personality Jason Ellis called G'day MMA.
Whenever he does decide to hang his gloves up and call it a career, there's no question Jouban will be remembered as a fan favorite who always delivered exciting scraps win or lose. More importantly, is that the Lafayette, Lousiana native has clearly set himself up for success whenever that time comes.
