“I want to retire at 30,” Caceres (8-5 MMA, 3-3 UFC) told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). “My goal, ultimately, is to be better tomorrow than I am today. It’s a growing experience as a person. I don’t want to define myself as just a fighter. I don’t think that we should.
“This is not it for me. If anything, this is a small stepping stone that will elevate me to my true purpose and goals in life. Fighting is just one small aspect of my life, and I choose not to define myself just with fighting.”
“Most people say, ‘Oh, you’ll see when you’re 30,'” Caceres said. “No, I know when I’m 30 I don’t want to do this anymore. Fighting is for the young. Even though at 30 I’m fairly young and in my prime, while I’m in my prime there’s so many other things I want to do in life. I want to go and chase those dreams, as well.
“I don’t want to be all beaten up by the time I’m 35 and still trying to get one more fight. That’s just not me.”
