Tyron Woodley Finally Reacts To Claims His Fight Against Jake Paul Was 'Fixed'
| Last updated
The former UFC champion suffered a brutal knockout defeat to Paul, who stopped him with a brutal clubbing right hand.
But his victory over Woodley was marred by accusations of the fight being rigged.
Fight fans slammed the YouTube star's knockout win, sharing footage of the knockout to back up their sensational claims.
'The Chosen One' has now broken his silence on the 'fix' claims - sarcastically stating he took a 'dive' in his rematch with 'The Problem Child'.
Speaking to Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour, he explained: "Yeah, I took a motherf**kin' dive.
"But it wasn't on purpose, that motherf**ker hit me with some sh*t."
The 39-year-old added: "A lot of people are saying that, 'Oh, you lost to him again. You got knocked out.'
"He would literally f**k a lot of y'all up."
Woodley continued by giving Paul, 25, his props and broke down why he's having success in the fight game.
"MMA fighters and other people that are just bumping at the gums. He's an athletic kid that don't have no job beyond this," he added.
"He don't have no kids, he don't have no businesses he's running.
"He can have the best trainer, the best coaches, the best nutrition, the most focus - he can separate himself.
"He don't have the financial burden. Most MMA fighters, when we first start, we don't have money. We do what we can do.
"We get whatever training we get can help us out to see a future in this."
It's not the first time Paul has been accused of being involved in rigged fights, but no evidence has been provided to suggest his matches are a work.
The 5-0 boxer, meanwhile, has been linked with a showdown against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, with Mairis Briedis wanting a piece of the star.
