  1. Brian Ebersole wanted 'fairy tale ending' to career but 'it just didn't quite happen'Read the original story

    Tuesday Jun 9 | MMAFighting.com

    Brian Ebersole didn't intend for this past Saturday to be his farewell fight, but no one has ever accused the fight game of being fair to its senior class. Ebersole, the 34-year-old veteran of the early aughts, called it a career after a knee injury ended his seventieth professional bout with a first-round TKO loss to Omari Akhmedov at UFC Fight Night 68. Considering his extensive history in Australia, Ebersole had hoped a win against Akhmedov would land him the chance at a proper retirement bout in Melbourne at UFC 193 , but alas the fight gods rarely allow for such formalities.
