Kyle Kingsbury Officially Retires From UFC After Losing To Patrick Cummins At UFC On Fox 12

After he was thoroughly dominated by Patrick Cummins at UFC on FOX 12, light heavyweight Kyle Kingsbury officially retired from competitive action on Saturday night.

Although the fight went to a decision, UFC insiders and fans alike were left with little doubt about who the winner was. Cummins scored a decisive victory on the scorecards (30-27, 30-25, 30-24) with Kingsbury actually losing rounds by a wider margin as the fight continued.

“I’m not sure if it was the time off or the fact his wrestling is so good, that I was never able to get comfortable in the Octagon,” Kingsbury said in a post-fight statement. “[Cummins] set his takedowns well and I really couldn’t do much to stop them. That was definitely my last fight. I told everyone I didn’t want to be a .500 fighter and so enough was enough. It didn’t make sense to get beat up anymore.”

After losing his UFC debut to Tom Lawler at The Ultimate Fighter 8 finale, Kingsbury racked up four straight wins. Since then, he lost to Stephen Bonner, Glover Teixeira and Jimi Manuwa.

Kingsbury finishes his MMA career with a record of 11-6-1.
