Paul renewed his rivalry with Woodley by taking aim at him on Father's Day on Twitter.
The YouTuber-turned-boxer shared a picture of past and present UFC stars in a damning collage, accompanied with the caption: "As a father myself, today means a lot to me. even though they've all lost a lot... my sons all have made me so proud."

But 'The Chosen One' put Paul in his place with a brutal reply.
He pointed out that Paul had actually uploaded a picture of him following his championship victory over Darren Till back at UFC 228 - when he was awarded a black belt for his submission win.
Woodley tweeted: "Dummy that's a pic of me getting a black belt after i smashed someone for a ufc one.
"But you wouldn't know nothing about getting strapped up. only strap ons."

Woodley, who's on a four-fight losing skid having lost his last four UFC fights, boxes Paul on August 28.
The 39-year-old has been backed to knock out the budding 3-0 fighter by Bellator star Michael Page.
He told MMA Fighting: "Tyron Woodley - if all goes to plan - should just sleep Jake quickly.
'Venom' added: "[Paul] will feel the difference between somebody that has been in the game a long time. that's experienced in terms of striking, whereas the argument with Ben Askren before, somebody that had not just retired, he checked out a long time ago and his strength was never his standup anyway. I saw it going that way.
"This fight is very different. I see Tyron Woodley going in there and correcting the world, because I feel like there's a crazy shift right now with what's going on.
"But Tyron Woodley is gonna be the guy to correct that."
