Woodley was left face down in the ring

But fans were convinced it was fixed as Paul flexed his wrist as a ‘signal’ seconds before delivering the devastating blow.

Woodley’s coach has spoke out and rubbished such claims, saying the MMA star wanted to ‘win’.

Speaking to MMA on Sirius XM, Din Thomas said: “That whole theory, it makes me laugh.

“Because being in his camp, I know how serious it was.

“It was serious like Tyron really wanted this win back, he really wanted this fight and it was a serious thing.

“Now, if it was a dive, I wish they told me about it because I wouldn’t have shown up and taken the night off.

“I’d be like partying but that wasn’t the case. I mean it was a real, legit fight.”

Woodley conceded he made the fatal mistake of dropping his hand before Paul‘s punch.

But has claimed he is not ready to retire just yet.

Woodley reminisced: “I fight for my kids and my family. I told you guys I was in shape, I told you guys I was ready to fight, and I told you guys I was in better shape than he was.

“So, I did that tonight and went back and looked at it and thought.

“Why the f**k did I drop my hands? I was ready, I had both my hands up and I was expecting the overhand.

“I knew he was gonna delay the punch. But even if he delayed it, I was ready for it.

“Even if he didn’t delay I don’t know why I dropped my guard. In this sport, it takes only one mistake, just one mistake, I blocked so many of his shots.”
