The outcome of his battle with Francisco Trinaldo definitely didn’t change his mind.
“Massaranduba” directed a nasty knee into a charging Dunham’s mid-section in the second round, causing Dunham to immediately crumble to the canvas in agony:

No follow-up shots were needed and soon the fight was waved off, giving Trinaldo his sixth win in his last seven opportunities competing in his home country of Brazil. The 40-year-old picked up his first stoppage win since September 2016.
Dunham heads into retirement with his second consecutive knockout loss and an 18-8-1 career record.
