Megumi Fujii close to retiring

Daniel Herbertson, MMA Fighting

One of the greatest female mixed martial artists has apparently reached the end of her career.

Megumi Fujii, long considered the top female MMA fighter in the world, is leaning towards retirement, according to sources who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

"Mega Megu" is in talks to compete on DREAM's planned New Year's Eve show, however, the promotion has yet to find her an "appropriate" opponent. If they do, that will serve as her retirement fight. If not, her current plan is to never fight again.

According to those same sources, the 38-year-old Fujii seriously considered retiring following her Bellator 69 loss to Jessice Aguilar in May, however, she is now open to fighting one more time in her native country of Japan before the end of the year.

Fujii (25-2) started her career 22-0 before losing to Zoila Gurgel at Bellator 34 in Oct. 2010.
