UFC fighter Nick Denis grabbed headlines when he cited concussion research as the reason for his sudden retirement. He was alarmed at the idea that accumulated sub-concussive blows absorbed in training could damage his brain just as much as a knockout shot.

Concussion research is in its formative stages, so Denis, a budding biochemist, likely won't be the last fighter to hang up the gloves for this reason.

Sunday on the Sherdog Radio Network "Rewind," Denis joins host Jack Encarnacao in the Sunday Sitdown to delve into his fears and hopes, and how they factored into his decision to retire.
