Less than three months after one of the most impressive performances of his career, 27-year-old bantamweight Michael McDonald has decided to retire from mixed martial arts.

McDonald (19-4) informed ESPN of his decision this week. McDonald is fresh off a 58-second knockout of former Bellator MMA champion Eduardo Dantas in July, but was forced to undergo his fifth hand surgery in the last five years following the bout.

A former UFC title challenger, McDonald said he wrestled with the idea of retirement even prior to his latest injury, and is confident he can now move on from professional fighting.

Agreed. Bummer we never got to see his full potential. I think he could have challenged for the title in time.
