Dana White Tells Chris Weidman To Retire

At UFC 261, former UFC middleweight champion, Chris Weidman suffered a broken leg in his loss to Uriah Hall.

After 2 years of not fighting, Chris came back in the octagon against Brad Tavares at UFC 292. 

However, his return was not successful as he suffered a unanimous-decision loss. And in the process, Weidman suffered lots of damage too.

Tavares’ attack to the legs showed he was aiming for Weidman’s previously-injured leg. And given that it was a loss on a prelim card, White suggested that Weidman should walk away. 

“Retire. Yeah, I love Chris Weidman, I love him, I love his family and I think he should retire. We talked to Doc D, D thinks he blew his MCL? ACL? He blew one of the CLs and the guy’s just coming back from a gruesome injury and, you know, listen, man, Father Time is not our friend at all but definitely if you’re a professional athlete,” White

Weidman is 39-years-old and is not in contention for a world title in any divison. As such, the social media response also backed up White’s comments.
