Matt Hamill is hanging up his gloves. The Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran first hit the fight scene in 2006 in a reality TV show called The Ultimate Fighter. He went on to earn a 9-4 record in the UFC, reaching the top 10 among light-heavyweight fighters. Now 34 years old, Hamill lost a bout Saturday to Alexander Gustafsson, his second straight loss. In the immediate future, he'll be promoting a film about him called Hamill, which tells the story of how he became the first deaf wrestler to win an NCAA wrestling championship. Hamill earned three Division III national titles competing for Rochester Institute of Technology in New York.
