The MMA world was left stunned when Kamaru Usman found himself on the end of a brutal head kick and his first-ever UFC loss.
It sent shockwaves throughout the UFC, but one man that was lapping it up and in stitches after Usman’s defeat was the one and only Jake Paul.
We all know how much the internet sensation loves riling up potential opponents and in true Jake form, he took full opportunity of Usman’s loss.

The YouTuber rubbed salt into the Nigerian’s wounds by taking to social media to tweet out a barrage of memes at the former welterweight champion’s expense.
Paul began his insult-laden rant by tweeting out: “LOLOLOLLOL. ‘Let me fight Canelo’.”
The tweet was seemingly in reference to the feud between Canelo Alvarez and Usman after the two fighters had come to blows on Twitter.
He then decided to post a photo of a photoshopped young version of himself wearing some sort of bow onto another fighter who has Usman in a rear-naked choke.
We’re presuming he didn’t photoshop the very odd image himself.
Jake was only getting started with his oddly themed insults.
His next tweet included a picture of a knocked-out Usman laying on the canvas with a speech bubble from the fighter’s mouth reading: “Jakey Pauli Ez fight.”
Considering the low effort put into this meme Jake may have very well made this one.
Finally, he kept the theme of the first meme by posting a video with the music ‘Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star’ playing in the background as the camera zooms in on Usman laid out with an animated dummy in his mouth.
The speech bubble this time read: “I love nap time!!!”
Taking into account the cringe levels on this one we’re going to say that the younger Paul brother definitely made this meme.
The rivalry between Usman and the social media personality kicked off the same way that many Jake Paul feuds begin, with the 25-year-old calling out the UFC star for a boxing match.
The now 15-1 fighter recently appeared on the I AM ATHLETE podcast where he discussed the possibility of facing Jake.
He said: “Listen, me and [Jake Paul] get in a scrap right now, he could touch me. I’m not naive or ignorant enough to think – let them put it on the news. I’m a realist. I know I’m gonna dog walk him, but at the same time, everyone has a puncher’s chance.”
Paul responded soon after, saying: “So, Kamaru, let’s do it then. I did better than you did against Tyron Woodley, that’s an easy comparison right there. You can sit there and talk all you want, but at the end of the day, you know it’s a money fight… If it was an easy fight, why wouldn’t you take the bag?”
Usman will likely be turning his attention well away from ‘The Problem Child’ as he sets himself for a likely rematch with Leon Edwards.
