12:51 PM ET 12.21 | After losing to Dustin Poirier this past weekend at the TUF Finale 16, Jonathan Brookins is going to take a break from the sport, and might not return after going to India. "All the things I didn't learn in fighting to better myself I feel like I can explore in this avenue. If it means extra effort or extra solitude, I'm going to pursue this harder than I even pursued fighting. I feel like it could make me a much better fighter, but if it leads me to not fight again, I think I would be okay with that," Brookins said.
