Ricardo Miller black belt and 2007 Mundial de No-Gi Champion Jeff Glover has retired from Brazilian jiu-jitsu competition.

Glover announced the news on Instagram only hours ago:

Going out on a big win . This will most definitely be my last match of my career. The stoner king 👑 my hips are jacked up and my body is telling me to take it easy now. So I’m hanging up my belt and Gi , and will now focus on being the best coach I can be @goodland_jiu_jitsu I’m 35 and I’ve been doing jiu jitsu events since I was 16 . Over those years I’ve been hurt a lot , but I would not change it for a second. It’s been an absolute honor sharing my jiu jitsu with you guys . Im crying as I write this , but they are tears of joy. I have to thank Franjinha for always being there for 20+ years . With out him non of this would have happened . I love all the jiu jitsu fans out there , especially the ones who hated me . Jiu jitsu ! Jiu jitsu ! Jiu jitsu ! Jiu jitsu ! Jiu jitsu !

Glover is well known in the jiu-jitsu world for his donkey guard, entertaining style, and ability to irritate his opponents.

He will be sorely missed.
