If Tyron Woodley never takes that walk to the octagon again, he can take comfort in knowing that his last exit was after a memorable performance

Woodley fought on Saturday That may sound like the minimum required of a professional fighter, but anyone who’s seen Woodley’s previous three outings must have had doubts that they could still do their job on a rudimentary level The narrative that went into his fight with Vicente Luque at UFC 260 was that the Woodley who knocked out Robbie Lawler and took out Darren Till was now exhausted.He has competed in wrestling and MMA for over 20 years and at one point this warrior became in its interior diminishes

When he lost the welterweight championship to Kamaru Usman two years ago, it could have been easy for him to just bump into a younger, better fighter. When he followed that up with an even less inspiring performance against Gilbert Burns, the red ones were Flags Obvious, and when he finally faced longtime rival Colby Covington, his inability to even get out of the starting gate was evidence not only of Covington’s ability, but also of how far Woodley had fallen from the ranks of the elite

But Woodley struggled again on Saturday with the strength of a man 10 years his junior (while also facing a man almost 10 years his junior) Aggressive from the start, throwing a savage punch that didn’t land to reduce the distance and immediately instigated the kind of wrestling attack that brought him to MMA dance in 2009, Luque combined strength with strength, punched and caused Damage in the clinch, but he also felt Woodley’s strength

Woodley bandaged with a large right hand and was reminded when the same strike knocked Lawler down and made Woodley No. 1 made 1 welterweight in the world.He threw his signature weapon free and let go of his hands with an eagerness that he hadn’t shown in ages.Not only was he waiting for the action, he was initiating and greeting him when Luque answered him Target prepared

A counter to the right made Woodley crawl.He tripped over the octagon and reached for the fence to stabilize.He fired back but was soon overwhelmed by Luque’s precision blow.Luque kept landing clean shots, sending a fading Woodley at the Luques canvas famous killer instinct kicked in and he soon had Woodley tied up and knocked on a D’Arce choke

He had held out longer against Covington, Burns and Usman, but Woodley had something far more inspiring about realizing how lifeless he seemed to be in these losses and doing everything in his power to change the narrative it has didn’t exactly work out, but for those who still cherish the hope that Woodley had the ability to go bravely with blazing guns, they may not have been disappointed

Woodley and Luque won the UFC 260 Fight of the Night Award, only the second time Woodley has won an additional 50 for that awardUFC President Dana White praised Woodley for his efforts and said at the post-fight press conference: “Woodley, who has received a lot of criticism, has come to fight tonight and he’s up tonight Run out of his shield. He came in to fight ”

If only the evaluation had ended there, White was then asked if he would like to see Woodley fight again, and his answer to that question was less enthusiastic:

A Matter of Age (Woodley will turn 39 in April) A reminder of his recent failures A pregnant hiatus and a one word answer UFC 260 was the last fight in Woodley’s contract and it’s fair to say his Future with promotion doesn’t look good right now. If so, the image of him valiantly chasing another knockout should be appreciated

Woodley even admitted in an Instagram post afterward that “Sh * t went really well until it wasn’t anymore” and that he “saw the opportunity to be knocked out and got too excited He knows what went wrong which is a good sign; he also doesn’t mention that he may be retiring, a sign that is more open to interpretation

I see his comments and performance in the most positive light I see a fighter become fully aware of his limits who openly defied them for at least one night in order to regain his former glory.He lost and if he decides that he still wants to keep up, there could be more losses. If they are like that, he has no reason to be ashamed

On Saturday Woodley fought what he hadn’t really done in a while and which no one can take away from him no matter what happens next
