No More Haggis Bashing! John Fraser Retires
John Fraser has retired from mixed martial arts. The highly ranked Canadian Featherweight and Bantamweight has decided it is time to hang up his MMA gloves. He made this announcement today:
I made a big decision today and it has been a few months in the making, I have decided to retire from fighting. I have had a lot of great fights, met a lot of wonderful people and have enjoyed every minute of it win or lose. Thanks to everyone that supported me through this part of my life…..my wife, family, friends, sponsors, training partners, students, opponents and especially the fans! I still plan to train, teach and coach because I love the sport and can’t imagine not being a part of it. Time to see what the next chapter in my life has in store for me………
Fraser, a Sarnia, Ontario native, finished his 10+ year career with an 11-5 record – impressive considering he took a hiatus from fighting after losing three consecutive bouts and was battling anxieties come fight time. Upon his return to fighting following a three year absence, a mentally stronger “Haggis Basher” reeled off seven victories and brought home the W1 Featherweight, a win over Thierry Quenneville that Fraser calls his greatest career victory, and Wreck MMA Bantamweight titles during the impressive winning streak.
Although Fraser fell short of the Octagon, perhaps his greatest success was his ability to juggle his personal, professional, and MMA lives. A married father of three, who worked full time, and coached at his Supreme MMA gym, it is amazing that Fraser ever found the time to train to become a top Canadian fighter.
