TYRON WOODLEY hit back at critics following his knockout loss to Jake Paul and warned ‘he’d f*** y’all up’.
The ex-UFC champion was brutally laid out in round six of his short-notice rematch with Paul in December.
It was his second defeat to the YouTuber, having initially been beaten on points four months earlier.
But the brutality of the rematch KO left Woodley the subject to viral memes and mocking.
The man himself though has played down suffering any embarrassment and instead praised unbeaten Paul.
Woodley, 39, said on The MMA Hour: “A lot of people are saying, ‘Oh, you lost to him again. You got knocked out.’
“He would literally fuck a lot of y’all up. 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 businesses he’s running.

“He can have the best trainer, the best coaches, the best nutrition, the most focus, he can separate himself.
“He don’t have the financial burden. Most MMA fighters, when we first start, we don’t have money.
“We do what we can do. We get whatever training we get can help us out to see a future in this.”
Paul has now KO’d all of opponents, also beating online rival ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC star Ben Askren, 37,
But he is still yet to face an opponent with prior professional boxing experience, after 7-0 Tommy Fury, 22, pulled out with a broken rib and chest infection.
