Former undisputed UFC welterweight champion, Tyron Woodley has sent a stern message directed at critics, haters, and trolls of his on social media following his stunning sixth round knockout loss to Jake Paul back in December – claiming the Ohio native would knock them out similarly.

Tyron Woodley, who ended his eight-year tenure with the UFC back in March following an opening round D’Arce choke to Vicente Luque as well as the completion of his contractual obligations, made the transition to professional boxing last year as well. 

Tyron Woodley last scored a professional victory in a September 2018 title defense against Darren Till

Headlining a Showtime! professional boxing event against the undefeated, Paul back in August, Woodley battled to a split decision against the YouTube content creator and social media star – suffering a judging loss over the course of 8 rounds.

However, on short notice last month, Woodley replaced an injured Tommy Fury to stand opposite Paul in an immediate rematch, where he suffered a devastating one-punch knockout loss in the sixth round.

The defeat came as Woodley’s sixth consecutively across professional combat sports, however, the St. Louis native had not been stopped by strikes since July 2012 in a vacant Strikeforce welterweight title fight against Nate Marquardt. 

Speaking on the falk he has since received following his knockout defeat to the polarizing Paul, Woodley informed MMA Fighting that those who critique him would likely find themselves in dire straits against Paul.

“And a lot of people are saying that, ‘Aw, you lost to him (Jake Paul) again,” Tyron Woodley said. “‘Aw, you got knocked out.’ He would literally f*ck a lot of y’all up, like MMA fighters and other people that are just bumping at the gums, he’s an athletic kid that don’t have no job beyond this. He don’t have no kids, he don’t have no business running. He can have the best trainer, the best coaches, the best nutrition, the most focus. He can separate himself.” (Trancribed by MMA News)

Whilst neither Woodley nor Paul have yet to book their next respective outings, Woodley has been linked to a return to professional mixed martial arts, and in particular, a bout against former welterweight championship challenger, Dan Hardy.

Tyron Woodley is firing back at the people hating on his loss to Jake Paul.

It’s been just over a month since Tyron Woodley was knocked out by Jake Paul in their second fight against each other. Woodley has been catching some heat from haters and people online since the loss. Woodley has some words for those who are criticizing his loss and, in turn, is giving some credit to Paul.

“And a lot of people are saying that, ‘Aw, you lost to him again! Aw, you got knocked out!’ He would literally fuck a lot of y’all up, like MMA fighters and other people that are just bumping at the gums, he’s an athletic kid that don’t have no job beyond this,” Woodley told MMA Fighting. “He don’t have no kids. He don’t have no business running. He can have the best trainer, the best coaches, the best nutrition, the most focus. He can separate himself.”

Woodley was a last-minute replacement this time around when Paul’s original opponent, Tommy Fury, dropped out. Woodley first faced Paul in August and lost that fight by decision. In his second attempt, Woodley was vocally more confident that he could defeat Paul, however, he was mistaken. Woodley is now giving Paul the credit he deserves.

Now that Woodley and Paul have run their course fighting each other, “The Chosen One” is not ready to just sit down and retired from boxing. One rumored possibility for his next opponent is fellow UFC alum Dan Hardy.

As for Paul, he is still moving forward with his boxing career after winning an award for “Breakout Boxer of the Year”. He was recently rumored to be fighting with Mike Tyson, but Tyson shot those rumblings down instantly. Paul has also been hinting at a move to MMA. If he does follow through with that plan perhaps he might consider giving Woodley another shot.

Do you think you personally could beat Jake Paul in a boxing match?

Dana White Downplays Ongoing Feud With Jake Paul

Dana White downplays his ongoing rivalry with boxer/YouTuber Jake Paul and actually commends him on making money in the combat sports world.

Paul has made the transition from a content creator to a boxer in a short amount of time. He hasn’t yet fought a true boxer, but has beat to former MMA champions in Tyron Woodley and Ben Askren. In his last fight, he was able to knockout Woodley in a way that he has never been knocked unconscious in his life. He has turned most of his competitors into memes by the time the match is up.

Paul made over $40 million in 2021 by boxing. That is a ton of money for a fighter that only has 5 professional fights. While his last PPV numbers were a bit down, one would assume that if Tommy Fury wouldn’t have dropped out of the fight, that Paul would have sold a lot more. A lot of people are really looking forward to Paul fighting a true boxer and the fight with Fury is a fun grudge match.

Paul also has taken multiple shots at UFC president Dana White since entering the world of combat sports. Paul has taken shot after shot at White for not taking care of his fighters and whether his intentions are true or not, he has been a loud voice for higher fighter pay in the UFC. He even challenged White to a competition between the two. Paul and White both accused each other of some wild things. Paul accused White of being addicted to cocaine and hookers, while White accused Paul of being on steroids.

Dana White on the other hand, doesn’t hate Jake Paul like many believe

“He really hasn’t been a thorn in my side. I don’t hate the guy like people think I hate him,” White told Manouk Akopyan. “You know, he’s out there doing his thing. He’s a young guy who’s got a fanbase and is trying to make some money. I don’t ever fault anybody for that.” (Transcribed by MMA News)

Paul also had a list of goals for 2022 that included “exposing bully Dana/help fighters”. Paul had also been rumored to fight Mike Tyson the past couple of days, but that report was a surprise to everyone, even Tyson himself.

Dana White ‘Doesn’t Fault’ Jake Paul For Making Money, Downplays Feud

UFC President Dana White says he’d never fault YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul or anybody for that matter for trying to earn money.

In a short space of time, Paul has grown from an internet celebrity trying his hand at boxing against other online stars to a professional pugilist knocking out former MMA champions.

Whether you admire his presence and growth in the sport or see him as a disturbance, no one can deny the rapid rise “The Problem Child” has made into the combat sports mainstream.

Having fought and finished fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib and former NBA star Nate Robinson, Paul turned his attention to mixed martial artists.

In three 2021 bouts, he knocked out former ONE and Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren and defeated former 170-pound UFC titleholder Tyron Woodley twice, once on the scorecards and once with a brutal KO.

In his quest for more eyeballs, bigger paychecks, and, if you believe it to be genuine, better pay for fighters, Paul has consistently called out and berated Dana White, the leading man for the world’s premier MMA promotion.

From sharing his disgust at the fact UFC women’s flyweight Sarah Alpar was forced to create a GoFundMe to finance her camp and expenses, to offering to enter the Octagon with Jorge Masvidal and retire from boxing if White increases fighter pay and provides a number of benefits for his roster, Paul hasn’t shied away from calling out the UFC President and his organization.

Dana White: “I Don’t Hate The Guy”

Dana White, Jake Paul

Despite all that, and in spite of his responses and accusations of steroid usage directed at the Cleveland native, White maintains that he doesn’t actually hate Paul. Instead, the 52-year-old sees “The Problem Child” as a kid who is simply “doing his thing” and making money, something White says he’d never criticize.

“He really hasn’t been a thorn in my side. I don’t hate the guy like people think I hate him,” White told Manouk Akopyan. “You know, he’s out there doing his thing. He’s a young guy who’s got a fanbase and is trying to make some money. I don’t ever fault anybody for that.”

Nevertheless, White has appeared unlikely to ever consider doing business with the 25-year-old star.

But citing the blockbuster ‘Money Fight’ between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor in 2017 as an example of fan demand pushing him into the crossover market, the UFC kingpin hinted he’d be open to joining the ongoing surge in crossover bouts if the desire for him to do so reaches a similar level to what it did four years ago.

“It’s a tough one. Obviously, when there’s this underground swell from the fans and the media and the thing builds up into something like Mayweather vs. McGregor was, you know, you saw how that worked out, I ended up doing it,” added White. “But I haven’t seen anything that big and that crazy since… If there’s a fight that could be made with some of this other stuff that’s that big that my fans really wanna see it, I usually do it.”

While White continues to put together and host weekly fight cards, Paul will seemingly continue his unbeaten venture into the squared circle, with UFC stars Nate Diaz and Masvidal on his radar.

Should Paul continue to gain momentum and popularity in the combat sports realm, perhaps we’ll eventually see him enter the Octagon or do business in some way or another with White.

Can you picture Dana White ever doing business with Jake Paul?

Jake Paul is teasing an announcement related to Dana White and fighter pay.

Paul has taken shots at White for not paying his fighters enough money and not providing them health care or benefits. It has gotten the attention of the UFC president, who responded to Paul in a video on social media.

Now, just recently, UFC Heavyweight Champion Francis Ngannou said he wouldn’t fight for the UFC again on his current contract.

“No, I will not fight for $500,000, $600,000 anymore,” Ngannou said to ESPN. “I mean, it’s over. It’s over. I just did this. I took this fight for a personal reason, and I want to make sure that regardless, even if it’s unfair, I have been wrongly treated, I can make my case to say I have completed the eight fights. But no.”

To no surprise, that got the attention of Jake Paul who took to social media to let Dana White know he is working on something big.

“give this man what he wants Dana. such a f****d company to be apart of… I got something coming soon,” Paul wrote on social media.

Although many MMA fighters have criticized Jake Paul, he has been vocal in wanting to help fighters get paid more. He donated to former UFC fighter, Sarah Alpar’s GoFundMe to help with her training.

Paul has also offered to retire from boxing and take an MMA fight in the UFC if White ups the minimum amount of pay to $50,000 a fight. However, that still has not happened, so by all outward appearances, the YouTuber-turned-boxer will continue to be an advocate for fighter pay in an attempt to get UFC fighters to make more money.

Jake Paul is coming off a sixth-round KO win over Tyron Woodley back in December, which improved his record to 5-0.
