UFC commentator Joe Rogan defends Jake Paul from ‘silly fake’ fight claims after YouTuber’s brutal KO of Tyron Woodley

UFC commentator Joe Rogan has rubbished claims that Jake Paul’s knockout of Tyron Woodley was ‘fake’.

YouTuber turned boxer Paul flatlined the former UFC welterweight champion in the sixth round of their Tampa tussle last year, which prompted a slew of viewers to claim the fight was fixed.

But that notion has been laughed off by UFC commentator and long-time boxing fan Joe Rogan

The notion of Paul’s viral one-punch KO of The Chosen One being ‘fake’ amused long-time boxing fan Rogan, who insists the stoppage was a display of the former Disney star’s skill.

During a recent episode of The Jogan Experience podcast, he said: “He [Paul] has been saying that he’s suffering from slurring words and loss of memory already.

“Yeah, it does not take long if you spar a lot…

“He is f***ing good though. Like people want to pretend he’s not because he is a YouTube guy.

“But the way he knocked out Tyron Woodley, that is f***ing skillful.

“He’s got real f***ing power.

“Meanwhile, the f***ing casuals are thinking it is fake. You’ve seen that? It is silly.”

Woodley’s long-time coach Din Thomas was also baffled by the claims, saying during an appearance on Sirius XM Radio: “That whole theory, it makes me laugh.

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

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