Tyron Woodley’s future is up in the air and if it’s up to Dana White then he thinks the former UFC champ might consider retirement.
Woodley dropped a loss to Colby Covington at the UFC On ESPN+ 36 event on Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nevada at the UFC APEX.
When Covington got a takedown, Woodley started yelling he hurt his ribs and the fight was stopped in the fifth round.
Before this fight, he had dropped his last two fights with both coming by decision – Kamaru Usman at UFC 235 and Gilbert Burns this past May.
Dana White Gives Bleak Thoughts About Tyron Woodley’s Future
“I think that he should start thinking about hanging it up,” White said of Woodley’s future after the fight (H/T to MMA Fighting). “He’s had a great career, he’s had a great run. He’s made money.”
“Listen, I don’t want to have the whole ‘let’s s*it on Woodley’ press conference, but Woodley’s had this throughout his career,” White said. “He’ll come out and knock a guy out explosively and whatever, and then have a fight where they lay on the fence for five rounds. I wouldn’t say that this is shocking, that this has never happened before, but—I don’t know.
“Listen, we all get older, it happens. It happens to the best of us. But Woodley’s had a good career. He’s been a champion, he’s been around here for a while, had a good run in Strikeforce too.”
