UFC Fight Night 178 or UFC Las Vegas 11 was held on Saturday, September 19th, at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The main event was headlined by Woodley vs Colby Covington, resulting in Colby taking the win after a TKO in the 5th round. Although the fight was dominated by Colby through the rounds, it was stopped after Tyron faced a severe rib injury. He will need to be cleared by an orthopaedic specialist or sit out until March 19 next year.

Was this Woodley’s last fight?
