He faced notable fighters like Edson Barboza, Dan Hooker, Mike Perry and former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos.

In May 2021, Felder announced his retirement from the sport of MMA. “The Irish Dragon” made the statement while working as a commentator at a UFC event. In his speech, the 37-year-old apologized to fighters ranked below him at the time for delaying the lightweight division.
“I always said if I didn’t see a title shot in about a year, I would retire…to save myself. I’m 37, feel very fresh, love the UFC with all my heart for everything they gave me. I’ve fought some of the baddest guys in this division. My apologies for holding up the division to all the guys behind me…it’s not nice to delay the division,” Felder said.
