Tyron Woodley’s slumping performance in 3 consecutive defeats is the reason why Dana White’s chairman advised him to think about leaving the ring.
Kamaru Usman, Gilbert Burns and most recently Colby Covington, Tyron Woodley’s three consecutive defeats showed that the former champion was no longer able to compete with the top fists of the weight class.
Despite being expected a lot when reuniting with teammate Jorge Masvidal before the match, Tyron Woodley could not find the explosion, precision and initiative as before. Proof is that in all 4 rounds, he let Covington play overwhelmingly in all aspects of strategy. This can be considered one of the most noticeably fierce boxing matches recently.
Losing to Colby Covington by TKO due to a rib injury, this was the first time Tyron Woodley ended his career at UFC. A milestone shows that “The Choosen One” is no longer as impenetrable as before.
Tyron Woodley completely outperformed an all-out Colby Covington
In this situation, UFC President Dana White must also admit, Tyron Woodley should consider his next move.
Although not officially stated, however, it can be seen that Tyron Woodley’s chances of staying at UFC are very slim. If lucky to be awarded one more match, the 38-year-old boxer will need a very convincing comeback because in the current situation, the Welterweight weight class is witnessing a lot of young and comprehensive talent than him.
After Tyron Woodley, Dana White plans to retire for Cowboy Cerrone
The draw against Donald Cerrone’s Niko Price at Fight Night 178 could be an unexpected result for the insiders themselves. When “Cowboy” did not show overwhelming opponents and even suffered more severe attacks.
After the match, president Dana White supported this result, but perhaps Cowboy’s slowdown caused him to question that is Cowboy still suitable at the UFC?
In the last 5 matches, Cowboy Cerrone did not win once – the worst achievement in his career. Through the time of guarding the gate in 2 weight classes for too long, it will be difficult for UFC to rank Cowboy with opponents too easily. Even when the chance to regain the defeat against a Pettis is not the same as before, “Cowboy” can not grasp.
Having had 3 consecutive defeats and still being given the chance to play by UFC, it can be seen that Dana White has been very generous with Cowboy.
