Tyron Woodley Finally Responds After Getting Brutally Knocked Out By Jake Paul

Tyron Woodley has squashed any rumours of retirement following his demoralising defeat at the hands (or fists) of Jake Paul.

The former UFC champion was brutally knocked out cold in his highly-anticipated rematch with the trash-talking YouTuber, with some fight fans urging the 39-year-old to hang up the gloves for good.

Now Woodley has come out and issued a response of his own.

"I'm not done. Please don't look at me with sorrowed eyes. Please do not look at me shaking your head," Woodley said.

"I done f**ked a lot of people up... At some point, we're gonna have to start putting a little respect on Jake's name.

"I never really disrespected him as a power puncher. That's something we always knew. That's why my defence was so tight. Had he dropped his hand on me, same s**t would've happened. I can't cry over spilled milk. I'm blessed to be here. I'm blessed for the opportunity to come out here and fight again to show you guys that I'm f**king still here."

Speaking directly after the damning loss, Woodley admitted he had seen replays of the KO backstage.

"I went back, and I looked at it, and I'm like, 'Why the f**k did I drop my hand?'" Woodley added.

"I had both hands up. I knew it was coming. I was ready to block the overhand. I don't know if he delayed it - even if he didn't delay it, I don't know why I dropped my hand. In this sport, it only takes one mistake."

For Woodley, it's clear retirement isn't on his mind right now, although you can't imagine promoters will be chomping at the bit to sign him anytime soon.

Meanwhile, Paul is on an entirely different trajectory and has already called out a number of high-profile boxers and mixed martial artists.
