Following a knockout loss to Johnny Eduardo, Eddie Wineland may be looking at the end of the road much sooner than expected.

He should be considering fighting with his hands up.

He's coming off a devastating loss, his head might not be in the right place at the moment. If he does retire, which is possible, he was fun to watch.

Thanks Eddie

Might not be a bad idea honestly, but it's not like Eddie got KO'd by some schmuck....Eduardo is a striking coach for an elite camp. Eddie has a full time job as a firefighter and a family though, it might be smart to leave the fighting alone and enjoy his family life and just train/coach fighters.

I don't blame him. His chances of fighting for a title anytime soon are very low and he's already been fighting for over 11 years. He's left his mark on this division and there's no shame in calling it quits now.

I'd rather he didn't. He's one of the best bw out there, he just got caught trying to tempt his opponent to open up. He just so happened to be faster than Eddie. I don't know how anyone couldn't get excited for this guy to fight, he always brings it and has incredible TDD, he refuses to be in a boring fight. He should take my boy Shane's advice
