Caol Uno Says Dream.16 Fight Could Be His Last

Japanese MMA veteran Caol Uno announced his move to featherweight and says his career could be coming to an end.

"I was challenging myself overseas for two years but I wasn't able to get a good result and I came back really sad," Uno said at Dream.15, according to the translation courtesy of HDNet. "But I still really want to improve myself and I want to return to the Dream ring one more time.

"I'm going to drop to featherweight. This could be my last fight, so please continue to support me."

The 35-year-old has amassed a 27-13-5 record since making his pro debut in October 1996. He's coming off a three-fight stint with the UFC, losing fights to Spencer Fisher, Gleison Tibau and fighting to a draw against Fabricio Camoes. Uno is a former Shooto 154-pound champion and twice challenged for the UFC lightweight title.

An opponent has not yet been determined. Dream.16 is targeted for September with a location to be announced.
