For Witt, the journey was a successful one, as he accomplished his main mission of competing for the largest MMA promotion in the world.
“For the past 15+ years I dedicated myself and my life to MMA,” Witt said. “Through literal blood, sweat and tears it taught me how to be disciplined, how to overcome adversity, and how to be humble and respectful. It forced me to grow up to become the man I needed to be to reach my goal to fight in the UFC. It allowed me to travel all over the world, introduced me to all kinds of people, and help make memories that I will cherish forever.”
