BREAKING: Gordon Ryan Announces Retirement From Grappling

    Gordon Ryan wrote on his Instagram Profile:

    “Thank you and farewell. It’s been years since I did anything besides training. I haven’t taken a vacation in 5 years. On this trip, I realized that there’s more to life than being stuck in a blue basement every day killing myself. I have proven I am the best over and over again and now its time for a change. Its time to start the next chapter of my life. i have some matches scheduled early in 2020 which I’ve committed to and will compete in but consider 2019 the last year of my competitive life span. I don’t need anything else in life. All I want and need now is to explore the world with the ones I love and help my teammates achieve twice as much as I have as well as help people around the world through instructional videos. I know it will pain a lot of you to see me go but this is something I’m sure about. i hope all the fans understand and have enjoyed the ride thus far. it’s not over. I couldn’t have asked for a better career. love you all ♥️. 📸 @jeffreyschu. @heysonnyy”
