FELICE HERRIG announced her MMA retirement inside the Octagon during UFC Vegas 56.
The fighter, 37, revealed she now wants to do something else with her life – which will include devoting more time to creating content for adult site OnlyFans.
Herrig lost in the second round of her rematch with Karolina Kowalkieqicz – her fourth defeat in a row.
The American bows out of the fighting game with a 17-10 record, including 5-5 in the UFC.
She said inside the Octagon after defeat: “You know, it’s been an honor being in the UFC for eight years and fighting for 20.
“The biggest thing for me, I had two ACL surgeries and really wanted to not go out like that.
“I really wanted to prove to myself that I can overcome two knee surgeries and come back and still fight at the highest level.
“You know I felt better than ever in training, my mind felt great, I had so much good energy and positivity with great people around me, great coaches but I knew that if I wasn’t feeling it in the cage then it was just going to be my last fight.
“Not in a bad way, I just feel like there’s something else for me.
“It’s time to close this chapter of my life, which is really sad because I’ve committed the last 20 years to it but it’s just time to move onto something else.”

Her OnlyFans bio reads: “Warm and fuzzy on the inside-Ninja skills on the outside! LOVER and a FIGHTER.
“If you’re a sucker for pretty feet you’ve come to the right place.”
