Swedish fighter Akira Corassani has all but confirmed that he’s set to retire after his latest knockout loss at UFC On FOX 14 in Stockholm this past Saturday night.
The former TUF season 14 competitor had lost his last three fights in a row, two by clean knockout and one by TKO, and thankfully the 32 year-old appears to have taken that as a sign that it’s time for him to hang up his gloves.
Corassani bows out with a 3-3 run in the UFC and a 12-6 (1nc) career record overall.

“I feel like I could write at least 8 books about my journey, the behind the scenes stuff and other craziness. If I found lamp today and rubbed it and a genie popped out and asked me to make a wish I would say “I wish every human being on earth could experience everything I have. Along the way I never thought of how many people I’d inspired, entertained and upset (mostly keyboard warriors). It is with deep joy I write this, I am full and content and I would never want to change a single thing. My brain has filed for a divorce and doesn’t want to cooperate anymore. The passion and the technique is there but every car has a date (except for the Swedish Volvo 740). I feel like I have so much to share, show and talk about and I will in the future… From the bottom of my heart… THANK YOU ALL FOR THE WONDERFUL 12 YEARS AND I TRULY LOVE AND APPRECIATE THAT YOU TUNED IN. It was all my pleasure folks. I salute you, THE END!?”
