Dana White urges Tyron Woodley to consider retirement

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

UFC President Dana White told the media after UFC Fight Night 178 that Tyron Woodley is near the end of his career. Woodley has lost his last three fights since March 2019.

“I think that he should start thinking about hanging it up,” White said, according to MMA Fighting. “He’s had a great career, he’s had a great run. He’s made money.”

In Woodley’s last two bouts, he was dominated by his opponents since May. He lost to Gilbert Burns and Covington this year.

He was also defeated by Kamaru Usman last March to end his title reign. He was the 170-pound champion from 2016 through 2019.

“The thing is with Woodley is it doesn’t seem like his head is in the game,” White said. “He’s focus on everything but fighting.”

Woodley fell to 19-6-1 in his career. This is only the second-time he was knocked out in his fights.

The St. Louis, Missouri native was knocked out in a loss for the first-time since July 14, 2012 when he lost to Nate Marquardt at Strikeforce – Rockhold vs. Jardine.
