TheCageDoor.net has learned that the man known as “Robo”, Chad Robichaux, is planning on retiring from MMA, effective immediately.
Robo told TCD that he was hanging up the 4oz gloves in order to focus more on his non-profit organization Mighty Oaks Foundation.
Mighty Oaks is a Christian based non-profit organization that focuses on rehabilitating wounded veterans. It offers a 24 month program that helps the soldiers “physically, mentally, and spiritually, by putting them in an ‘un-plugged’ environment”. Through a partnership with Gracie Barra, the program also offers the soldiers an opportunity to learn Jiu-Jitsu and other skills related to the martial arts industry.
“I just feel like it’s my calling. I’ve always been very spiritual and this just feels right,” Robo said about his decision.
Robo ends his career at 11-2, having fought for both Strikeforce and Bellator as well as holding the Bantamweight title for Legacy Fighting Championship.
