Tyron Woodley came up short against Colby Covington at UFC Vegas 11, and Dana White thinks he should start considering retirement. White spoke at the post-show press conference (per MMA Weekly) and said that he believes Woodley should consider calling it a day.

“I think (Woodley) should start thinking about hanging it up,” White said. “We all get older. 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.”

Woodley lost the main event of Saturday’s show via TKO in the fifth round due to a rib injury. It was Woodley’s third loss in a row following unanimous decision losses to Gilbert Burns at UFC Vegas 1 in May and Kamaru Usman at UFC 235 in March of 2019, the latter of which saw him lose the UFC Welterweight Championship to Usman.
