Berry Calls It A Career

Robert \

One of the stalwarts of the United Kingdom MMA scene has decided to call it a career, according to Lee Whitehead of MMAWeekly.com; Robert “Buzz” Berry, after his loss to Neil Grove at Cage Rage 27, announced his retirement at the Cage Warriors’ forum on Wednesday night with the following post:

“Just to let you all know I have had to retire. After my fight with Neil Grove I was taken to the hospital and had to have surgery on my face. They have had to put two plates in, one in my cheek bone and one on my eye socket. So that is it, over for me.“Can I take this opportunity in congratulating Neil Grove on the fight and good luck in the future. Thank you to all my camp and other camps for their help over the years in getting me ready for fights. Thanks to all my fans in their support for me, it has always meant a lot. A real big thanks to John Close, he has been a diamond – we have been joined at the hip for a few years. Neil Wain has been a star for me and wish him all the best in his fight in the UFC. Thanks to the guys at Cage Rage for their part in my fighting and to anyone I have missed out: Thank you.”

 

Berry, during his MMA career, amassed a record of 13-8 and will probably be best remembered for his knockout victory of Frank Shamrock in March.  Prior to his retirement, he was one of the busier fighters since he started his career in the MMA in 2001.
