WEC veteran Bedard retires

By on May 21, 2009

WEC veteran Jeff Bedard has announced his retirement, despite recently winning his 13th fight.

The 39-year-old managed a second-round submission win over Jason Georgianna at Saturday’s ‘The Fight party: Revenge’.

“I’m done,” Bedard told MMAjunkie.com. “I’ve had a good run, and I just opened my own gym down here (in Georgia). It’s more important that I run my gym and focus on coaching.”

Bedard managed to win the PFC bantamweight title in January after a victory over Shawn Klarcyk.

“I still could compete at a high level,” Bedard said. “I train with (undefeated WEC contender) Brian Bowles on a daily basis. With my skill level, I know I can still compete with anybody. But I think it’s just time.

“I’m not 29 years old anymore. I need to have something to fall back on, and this is what I want to do. I want to make sure I put all of my time and effort into building this gym and doing things the right way.”
