Northeast MMA Vet Jay Hieron Retires


Jay Hieron announced his retirement from MMA competition yesterday, and the move caps off a pretty amazing career that began right here in the Northeast nearly ten years ago.
Hieron, a.k.a. "The Thoroughbred", made four appearances in the Octagon, and though he never managed to get a "W" there, he did fight against the likes of Georges St. Pierre, Jake Ellenberger and Tyron Woodley. He also was a regular in the IFL, and fought in Bellator, Strikeforce and the WEC.
