The highly hyped fight between former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley and ex-Youtuber Jake Paul finally occurred over the weekend and saw Paul defeat Woodley in a split decision after eight hard-fought rounds.
Woodley, who was evidently unhappy with the unanimous decision, called the judging “laughable” and demanded a rematch in the immediate post-interview. The ex-welterweight champion went as far as calling the decision “bullsh*t.”
The win over Woodley puts Paul at 4-0, currently undefeated in his past four professional bouts. Prior to his match with Woodley, Paul made it a point to media that he was ready for the competition is taking a considerable step up to be able to get in the ring with Woodley. Going into the fight, Woodley had his loss by submission at the UFC 260 last March, his fourth consecutive defeat heading into free agency.
Paul has had a considerably successful and career so far, previously sending Nate Robinson into defeat and turning him into a meme last November. He also knockout former MMA fighter Ben Askren in the first round. The fight with Woodley garnered a lot of attention on Twitter after the fight and even solicited a response from LeBron James, Paul’s childhood idol and fellow Cleveland native.
