“My take on it is when you’re 35 years old, or any age in this sport and you’re like, ‘Yeah, I’m gonna wait.’ Waiting is never a good idea in this sport,” White said. “This sport doesn’t wait for anybody, and I think he looked slow tonight, got outwrestled. Leon looked good, Leon looked fast, looked like he [Covington] had trouble dealing with his speed and then getting outwrestled, too. Not to mention the fact that Leon absolutely destroyed that leg.”

White went on to say that at Covington’s age, it’s almost impossible for a fighter to know when suddenly they do not have the same explosiveness they once had.

“I don’t ever have anybody wait in this business, man,” White said. “This is not a business that waits for you. Your windows are very short, and you never know once you start getting up into your mid-30s when you’re gonna show up and not look like you anymore.”
