Former UFC welterweight champion Woodley took on Jake Paul recently. It was a rematch of their fight that took place earlier this year. ‘The Chosen One’ entered as a late replacement for Tommy Fury. Fury pulled out of the fight, citing an injury. Woodley stepped in and got knocked out in the sixth round.

While talking about the loss, his coach said, “I think he went through a series of different emotions. I remember standing inside the ring as soon as it happened and he was like no, no, when do I go back out? He didn’t even know, right when it happened, he thought it was in between rounds. And I’m sure he was probably wondering why everybody was standing inside the ring. He didn’t even know at that moment.”

Tyron Woodley really wanted this win back

There was one particular moment in the fight because of which fans jumped to this conclusion. Just before Paul landed the devastating right hook that sent Woodley crashing down, ‘The Problem Child’ twisted his hand. This got fans talking, saying that it was a signal from him to Woodley.
