Kurt "Batman" Pellegrino has decided not to renew his UFC contract and instead focus on his family and running his school in Belmar, New Jersey.  Kurt will still be a fixture at local NJ shows cornering his guys, and active in MMA, but his fighting days, at least for the time being, are over.

In the video, Kurt also addresses a comment that Tim Kennedy made:

 

Kurt Pellegrino is taking a year off from fighting because he got a tiny glimpse of what its like to be a deployed soldier.

 

That comment was kind of out there, and many people felt it was insulting.  Kurt talks about how he interpreted Tim's comment and what the military means to him.

He also talks about his baby boy, who will grow up wrestling before he even thinks about BJJ.  Check it out.
