Jeff Monson has quietly retired from MMA in Russia

Jeff Monson has quietly retired from MMA in Russia

This Jeff Monson, a verifiable international man of mystery. It's safe to say The Snowman has renounced being American after he stated anarchy was the country's only solution. Now all that's left of Monson is the newly developed Russian variation of his former self, one that continues to criticize the fallacies of America's economy. I can't be the only one that embraces this version of The Snowman. He may not be exactly what Nietzsche refereed to as the Übermensch -- but then again who really cares what German existentialists have to say about society. Those dudes can't even decide on whether reality even exists in the first place.

We can't lie and tell you that we knew Jeff Monson quietly retired from MMA in Russia after picking up his sixth consecutive win. Damn, well it was fun Monson. Thanks for all the communist propaganda and socialist enlightenment throughout the years.

Zeus is represented by Galactus in his avatar image because he has an immature obsession with Marvel when they went all sci-fi back in the mid 80s. I'm the creator of MiddleEasy and Nickelodeon's The Adventures of Pete and Pete. Just kidding about the Nickelodeon stuff, but that would be really cool.

Zeus, I think the tile is wrong. He hasnt retired and didnt even said that in the video which I saw live.

There is no news about retirement yet from him.

Sherdog is showing a 6 fight slide, not wins. I hope Jeff walks away before suffering any long term damage. He is a true warrior and has been for years.

Nietzsche=nihil ism. I know existentialism is a fun buzz word but get the facts straight.

Nietzsche wouldn't really have been a nihilist as I understand it. He discussed nihilism; the highest values devaluing themselves; but himself proposed a way to overcome nihilism by creating new values for yourself.

Then again, you could call him a nihilist or an existentialist and depending on your definition and the generally understood definition that may or may not be a useful thing to do. In my experience though both of those words, but especially the latter are used to mean a wide variety of things and are thus not terribly useful for philosophical discussion without further clarification.

In short: I don't know, what am I a conclusion machine?! Now I'm going to resist the urge to talk about anarchism and communism.

As per other comments, he never said he retired.

I never understood this dude. Is he a Communist or an Anarchist? Is the State the great equalizer or the immoral parasite?

Should we be extreme individualists or complete collectivists?

Should the market and resources be completely and utterly set free or should the all powerful State manage and plan them?

I know there are different schools of thought in any -ism and -archy, but I wonder if he gets that? I wonder if he understands that mixing or blending different schools of thought and philosophy is one man's heaven and the another man's hell....
