Too many injuries for Bas. Even in the end of his career he ate pain killers like Tic Tacs. Bas is done.

There's a few others out there like Bas. Hard to put something you love down though.
Not to cross train cripples the martial arts, without it you can become a mechanic, but never an artist.

I would love to see Bas back in the ring/cage, but to be honest I don't wan't him to do a comeback. I mean when he retired he was undefeated his last 22 fights, not to many fighters have done something like that, making a comeback now and losing would destroythat and why should he do it. No, I want to keep my image of Bas as the best fighter to ever have lived, maybe it is bold of me to say it but to me, he truly is the best fighter ever.

Well he definatly shouldn't make a comeback, agree with you 100% there. Not quite with you on the best fighter comment but hey we all have our favourites take me being a Bisping fan :lol:
Love all mma, and big UFC fan but I do miss Pride.

He should concentrate on making more of his really really cool street defence DVD instructionals as his first 2 lots were awesome :lol:

On a serious note Bas was in my opinion about 5-8 years too early. Imagine a heavyweight with his talent and fighting ability mixing it up with the heavyweights today and i could see him owning the heavyweight title too. Bas vs Randy would have been awesome but Bas is done. Training is now his thing along with his commentating and presenting.
Fighting is a hit and miss game. Are you prepared to pay the price if you miss?

To be honest I don't think he retired a second to early, of course we all wanted to see more of him but thats the whole point of retiring when you are at the top right? we all want more of him and will remember him as one of the best.
