It was through Instagram that Cedenblad made the announcement:

Joanna Jedrzejczyk Gives Advice To Zhang Weili Following UFC 261 Loss: "Start A New Chapter"

 

 

Igår skrev jag det jobbigaste mailet i mitt liv. Som alla vet så har jag varit skadad en längre tid å kg ser inget ljus i tunneln. Känner att jag nu måste gå vidare med mitt liv och starta ett helt nytt kapitel istället för att hålla fast vid en dröm som mer å mer bleknar. Men som sagt jobbigaste mailet någonsin. Dra ut sladden från din bästa vän. Som nu är död. Rinner en tår när jag skriver detta men inser att det är det enda rätta. Så tack ufc för att jag fick fightas i världens bästa organisation och speciellt ett gigantiskt stort tack till mma du har varit min bästa vän å min livskamrat i så många år (du kommer finnas kvar men på andra sätt). Å tack till alla er som har följt min resa. Önskar jag hade kunnat visat mer. Men det är en del i att vara idrottare. Jag skulle aldrig varit nöjd. Men ändå så stolt över mig själv. Tack allt å alla.

Here is a translation of what Cedenblad wrote, provided by Google Translate:

“Yesterday I wrote the hardest mail in my life. As everyone knows, I've been injured for a longer period of time. Kg does not see any light in the tunnel. Feel that I must now move on with my life and start a whole new chapter instead of sticking to a dream that fades more and more. But as said the hardest mail ever. Pull out the cord from your best friend. That is now dead. Running a tear when I write this but realize that is the only correct one. So thank you ufc for getting fightas in the world's best organization and especially a huge thank you to mma you've been my best friend to my life mate for so many years (you'll be left but in other ways). Thank you to all of you who have followed my trip. Wish I could have shown more. But that's part of being athletes. I would never have been satisfied. But still so proud of myself. Thank you all to all.”

Cedenblad ends his professional MMA career with a final record of 14-5-0, with some notable wins coming over Jarred Hamman, Krzysztof Jotko, Scott Askham and Garreth McClellan. Cedenblad was last seen in action at UFC Fight Night 99, suffering a second round TKO loss to Jack Marshman.
