Gunnar Nelson Signs New Multi-Fight Deal With The UFC | Social Media Roundup



It is with sadness in my heart that I say farewell to the UFC. I spent the majority of my life trying to get in and once I was in I did it my way. I accomplished my dreams and did what I could to effect change within a system that greatly needs it. I am grateful for the blessings and the lessons that I was given and shown in these last 4 years and am truly a better man and fighter because of them. To all those that believed supported me, thank you, I love you. To all those that hated on me and motivated me, thank you, I love you. To whatever awaits me next, I am ready, let’s go! ---------- . . . . #farewell #ufc #freeagent #alwaysmovingforward #benow #grateful #blessed #mma #tristarvancouver #love #lifeswork #lifespassion #martialartist #vancouver #vancity
