British MMA: Robert “Buzz” Berry Is Forced To Retire After Injury

Cage Rage 25 'Bring it On'

buzz berry retires

Following his fight with Neil Grove at Cage Rage 27, Robert “Buzz” Berry (13-8) has announced his retirement from active fighting. Berry suffered facial fractures during his second round TKO loss to Grove.

Berry is best known in the states for knocking out Ken Shamrock at Cage Rage 25.

“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.”
