Tonight may be the last time we see John “Doomsday” Howard enter the cage for a professional mixed martial arts fight.
Just this morning, Howard posed a video on his social media feed and said that he most likely has gotten a job offer making $80, 000 a year, with health benefits and stock options due to his background as an electrician.
Howard, a 36 fight veteran said in the video, despite being in the fight game for 14 years and being 33-years-old, he’s actually in debt. While not confirmed yet, “Doomsday” has said he will show up to his fight against Abubakar Nurmagomedov this weekend at World Series of Fighting 33, but even if victorious he will be deleting all of his social media accounts if given this opportunity.
Howard also went on to say that despite being called an “American Hero” by local law enforcement for beating up one of the terrorists involved in the April 15 bombing of the Boston Marathon — Tamerlan Tsarnaev. He did not receive any kind of financial reward for his efforts.
If this is in fact his last fight, we at MMASucka would like to thank John “Doomsday” Howard for all of the memories he has provided us in his 14 year career.
