These days, Felder (17-6 MMA, 9-6 UFC) intrigued the public because he took a USADA test and thus announced a possible return. Let's remember that he is a retired UFC fighter and now works as a commentator in the UFC. He said that all cards are open and that he never said that he will not fight again to the general delight of his fans and the entire MMA audience.

A lot of his colleagues came back from retirement like that and very successfully, which the older fans remember very well.

Paul Felder has returned to training, a possible return to the UFC has been announced

“I have no idea,” Felder said on the ESPN+ UFC Fight Night 226 pre-fight show when asked if he was fighting again.

“I rolled with Michael (Chiesa) today. Honest to God, it blew up on social. I’m back training. I’m enjoying MMA again. Although he has health problems, his hips are not what they were 5 or 10 years ago, but he says that now he is much better and that he trains more and more.

Although he says he is in good shape, he is aware that the best possible opponent could be someone his age. It is certain that Paul Felde wanted adrenaline and matches, but how safe is it for his health considering his hip problems.

“For all the people that think I need a complete both hip replacements, I have bad hips, there’s no secret about that. I’ve had bad hips for years, but I am back in the USADA testing pool. That’s exactly where I’m at now, but that is it.

That is it. I did it just in case. I’m getting old and there might be some old dudes out there that might want to dust it up in six months. Other than that, I have no idea. I’m enjoying training”. as quoted by MMAJunkie.
