Nordine Taleb says next UFC bout will be retirement fight

It appears Nordine Taleb will soon hang up his gloves.

The 38-year-old UFC welterweight announced Tuesday on Twitter that he is retiring after his next fight. Taleb (15-7 MMA, 7-5 UFC) is not currently booked, but he recently competed in September where he suffered a first-round knockout to Muslim Salikhov.

Taleb has been fighting professionally since 2007. The Frenchman holds notable wins over Pete Sell, Li Jingliang, Erick Silva, and Danny Roberts. Taleb, who also competed under the Bellator banner, has been in the UFC since 2014.

Below is Taleb’s announcement:

Hi everyone, after thinking for a while about it, I took the decision that my next UFC fight will be my retirement fight. It was a hell of a ride and I’m very grateful for it! See you soon for the last ride.
