“The Filipino Assassin” Phillipe Nover retires from mixed martial arts

A short while ago, “The Filipino Assassin” Phillipe Nover took to his Instagram account to announce his retirement from mixed martial arts.

Phillipe ends his career at 11-8-1 following a split decision loss to Rick Glenn at UFC 208 in Nover’s hometown of Brooklyn.

“Super”, as he was once nicknamed early on, burst onto the scene as a contestant on season 8 of The Ultimate Fighter. After a successful run at the TUF house, he lost to Efrain Escuardo in the TUF 8 finale.

He already has his sites set on his post-fighting career as he announced on twitter that he would be starting school to secure a master’s degree to become a nurse practitioner.

We here at would like to thank and congratulate Nover on his career in mixed martial arts, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
