Tyron Woodley ‘looked like a sack of s***’ in ‘very embarrassing’ loss to YouTuber Jake Paul, says ex-UFC star Dan Hardy

TYRON WOODLEY ‘looked like a sack of s***’ in his ‘very embarrassing’ loss to YouTuber Jake Paul, ex-UFC title challenger Dan Hardy said.

Woodley was beaten by Paul on points after eight rounds despite having the social media star hurt in round four after sending him into the ropes.

It ended months of trash talk and build up between the pair, which included a spat at a press conference where Woodley’s mother was involved.

But after the former UFC champion suffered defeat, Hardy hit out at the American with a brutal assesement.

He told Submission Radio: “He looked like a sack of s*** the other week.

“That was very embarrassing. The reason I’m annoyed about it, is that he validated exactly what I thought was gonna happen, and I expected more from him.

“Like dude, you’re nearly 40, you’re rap game’s not going anywhere, you’re MMA career’s done, you’ve got a guy in front of you that’s been trashing your mum, that’s been talking a whole heap of nonsense for how many months?

“And you’ve got eight rounds to punch him in the face and you’re already half punching him through the ropes, and then you don’t put your foot on the gas because you’re afraid of being vulnerable?

“That just looks weak to me. It looks weak and it wastes people’s money.”

Paul, 24, moved to 4-0 in his career and added to his wins over online rival ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, both 37.

Woodley, 39, left the UFC after four consecutive losses, without a win in three years, with his run of defeats stretching over to the boxing ring.

Hardy, 39, said: “I love all these weird and wonderful fights, but that’s when it runs out of steam.

“Like, that’s when the fire burns out, is when people tune in and they see that s***show and they go, ‘Oh, I won’t get it next time, because I’ll expect the same thing’.

“I’d rather watch Askren get knocked out again than watch that. And Askren wasn’t there to win, we all know that.

“I think what’s even worse is that Woodley was there to win and he didn’t try.

“And that must burn him. That was burning him in the post-fight interview.

“He could barely contain himself without calling him out before he finished his interview.

“It’s like dude, you’ve missed your opportunity, shut the f*** up and sit down and go and find something else to do, because you’ve just had your opportunity and it passed you by.”
