Tyson Pedro Makes a Quick Return to Combat Sports

After announcing his retirement following a decision loss to Vitor Petrino at UFC Vegas 87, Tyson Pedro cited a lack of passion for the sport and the financial strain of training and traveling for fights.

He emphasized that he is not looking for easy fights in boxing and intends to challenge himself by facing tough opponents. Moreover, Pedro aims to contribute to the sport by organizing quality events and offering opportunities to young fighters.

Expected to compete in the bridgerweight division, Pedro’s debut date is unknown. However, Green is confident in Pedro’s potential to become a boxing world champion, highlighting the belief in his skills and determination.

With a 10-5 record in MMA, including a 6-5 run in the UFC, Tyson Pedro’s transition to professional boxing marks a new chapter in his combat sports career. This unexpected turnaround showcases Pedro’s resilience and determination to pursue his dreams, despite setbacks and uncertainties in the sports industry.
