And Now He’s Retired: Leonard Garcia Retires After Legacy FC 37 Loss

Remember Leonard Garcia? Turns out he got submitted this weekend in under two minutes by Daniel Pineda at Legacy FC 37 and subsequently retired.

This is likely a good decision for the 35-year-old, who was 3-7 in his last three years of competition. More fighting would’ve only led to increased risk of permanent injuries while the fame, notoriety (and money) continued to decrease.

Garcia is perhaps most notable for being a staple of the WEC’s featherweight division in the promotion’s heyday. ┬áThat’s where he was most successful, establishing a 4-3-1 record in that promotion.

Garcia won four “fight of the night” honors in his two runs in the UFC, but he never ascended even into the mid-echelon there. His UFC record stands at 2-7, and his overall record at the time of retirement is 18-13-1.

We now wonder who will take Garcia’s place as the fighter most likely to walk forwards throwing windmill punches with reckless abandon and somehow win a decision without despite not landing many strikes.
