Dana White believes Joe Lauzon should retire

The well-experienced lightweight contender Joe Lauzon last fought in 2019 against Jonathan Pearce; after being inactive for almost 3 years, he agreed to fight Donald Cerrone in 2022, but the fight between the two got canceled twice.

Lauzon decided to show up in the recent UFC 292 event, but the card was already packed with fights, due to which he didn't get an opportunity to fight. According to Dana White, Joe Lauzon should call it quits and retire from MMA because of the age factor.

White believes Lauzon has done enough in the sport, so it's pretty pointless for him to fight again. Lauzon is 39 years old, and he has a professional MMA record of 28-16. It will be interesting to see if Joe Lauzon can make a final return before leaving the sport forever.

Dana White's thoughts on Joe Lauzon

In the recent post-fight press conference, Dana White spoke about Joe Lauzon and addressed that he should retire. "It wasn't that his services weren't needed," White said, as quoted by mmafighting.com.

"The card was full at the time that he was asking. ... I would like Joe to retire, too." "It gets to the point, it's like Chris Weidman, we were talking about Chris Weidman a minute ago, Weidman reached the pinnacle of the sport, and did it in spectacular fashion, knocking out one of the greatest of all time, and what's now? Why? To come back and feel it one more time? He felt it tonight, and he blew his knee out, and he's going to have to go through crazy surgery again and recover from it.

White further said: It's just like, why? You've already done it all. You've accomplished everything that you could hope to accomplish in the UFC. "And saying that, so is Joe Lauzon. Joe Lauzon at one point held the most 'Fight of the Night' bonuses.

He's been a part of The Ultimate Fighter. He's done so much in the sport. You get to an age where it's like, c'mon guys".
