    Dana White Suggests It’s Time For Cowboy Cerrone, Tyron Woodley To “Stop” Fighting

    UFC president, Dana White has given his thoughts on another lacklustre performance from former welterweight kingpin, Tyron ‘The Chosen One’ Woodley, as well as future Hall of Fame inductee, Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone – suggesting it’s more than likely time for both to consider hanging up their respective gloves.

    Slumping to his third consecutive defeat tonight in the main event of UFC Fight Night Vegas 11 opposite bitter-rival, Colby ‘Chaos’ Covington – Woodley failed to get started once more, in an eventual fifth-round stoppage defeat after suffering a rib injury. The shutout loss to Covington followed a similar May defeat to number-one contender, Gilbert Burns – after a UFC 235 title loss to Kamaru Usman in March of last year.

    For the above mentioned, Cerrone – the BMF Ranch propetior battled to a majority draw with well-rounded welterweight challenger, Niko ‘The Hybrid’ Price in tonight’s co-headliner. With referee, Jason Herzog deducting a point from Price following two eye pokes in the opening round, judges scored the fight, 29-27 for Cerrone, with two scoring 28-28. The draw extends Cerrone’s run without a win to five fights, following knockout defeats to Tony Ferguson, Justin Gaethje, Conor McGregor, and a decision loss to Anthony Pettis.

    Speaking with press following UFC Fight Night Vegas 11 – White told how he believes Woodley should consider calling time on his career, before explaining how he would have a discussion with Cerrone – suggesting he should also hang up his gloves.

    I think he (Tyron Woodley) should start thinking about hanging it up,” White said. “He’s had a great career, he’s had a great run, you know, he’s made money.

    White further explained how he knows a potential conversation about retirement with Cerrone would “break his heart“, but claimed the win he secured tonight – was surviving beyond an initial flurry in the opening minute from Price.

    Listen, for him (Donald Cerrone) tonight, the win for him tonight was, he was on his way out in the first thirty-seconds of the first round, He fought back, he’s tough, he durable, and I love Cowboy and I know this is gonna fu*king crush him and break him heart, but it’s time to have a conversation with him.

    In Woodley defense he is fighting the toughest guys in the world but i for one will never watch another one of his fights. I don't know who named him the chosen one but at no time was he the best welterweight in history which is somehow embedded in his mind. Almost like he is in there just for a check. This refusal to engage and feinting 200 to 1 in punches is brutal to watch. In the fourth round i said to myself "if this idiot is going to back up again and get in the clinch i am done for the night and of course he did so i shut it off and went to bed. I see he hurt his rib which means he got taken down again in a boring fifth round which most likely was a carbon copy of the other four. I would rather have my rib give out than hear i lost on all three judges cards. Woodley has now bored us to death against Wonderboy in their second fight, and has bored us to death fighting the same way except against Till. Usman, Burns, Colby, Wonderboy, and now Colby. Four terrible fights to watch with Woodley fighting the same way and bullshitting before the fight how he was going to let his hands go. As for Cowboy just let him fight. Another guy with a tremendous kicking game who refuses to use it. The competition has gotten better but he can still be a gate keeper. At least he will fight. let him fight those up and comers and possible beat guys like that punk Hernandez.

    Time for both to go to Bellator and test those mediocre waters..

    Dana White should cut them both and do them a favor so they don't catch more beatings in the UFC..
