Rami Aziz’s latest cage appearance at Brave 1: The Beginning turned out to be his career swan song. After nine years and 12 professional fights, Rami Aziz has decided to call it a career.
The Iraqi/Swedish featherweight announced his retirement from the sport of MMA with a touching statement on Facebook that translates to:
“Everything has a beginning and an end,” Aziz wrote. “Now, I put the gloves on the shelf. Some people start their career at this age but I have competed in full contact sports continually for the last 10 years. It feels the best time to stop now.”
The 25 year old fighter has had a lengthy career that began in 2009, and has won 8 out of 12 professional fights. His last appearance was only 4 months ago at Brave 1 where he suffered an unfortunate loss against Abdulkareem Al Selwady.
Aziz has been a major figure on the Swedish and Middle Eastern MMA scene. Having fought in top regional organizations including Desert Force Championship and Brave Combat Federation.
He may have lost his last fight, but he was standing in the exact place that most MMA fighter dreams of competing. Known for his remarkable athleticism and incredible conditioning, Aziz will always be remembered as the triathlete who loves to throw leather.
