Leonard Garcia announces retirement from MMA
Garcia was without a doubt one of the sports most entertaining fighters, one of the fights that always comes to mind is his first fight against Jung Chan-Sung at WEC 48. If one ever wanted to see “heart” in a fighter, this is the fight that one should see, a pure display of heart and determination coming from both parties.
Although Garcia had an up-and-down fighting career, it is safe to say that almost all his fights were highly entertaining due to his gritty nature in the cage. He will be missed. Although he will be retiring from MMA he did hint at giving professional kickboxing a try in the future.
Below is a video of Legacy FC 37 Highlights which has a snippet of Garcia’s fight against Pineda.
