The war of words continues between Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley before their highly awaited boxing bout on August 28. Both the guys have taken constant shots at each other and have engaged in some trash talk ever since they signed the bout agreement. ‘The Problem Child’ trolled Woodley on June 20 by posting a collage of photos where UFC fighters including Tyron Woodley were seen getting finished or crying.

Paul tweeted, “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.”

The troll took a while to reach ‘The Chosen One’, but when it did, Woodley replied, “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.”

UFC fighters in the photo collage with Tyron Woodley

1. Kmaru Usman

Kamaru Usman, the current welterweight champion, is the first fighter from the top left in the collage. This photo is from 2013 where ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ suffered the first and only loss of his MMA career. It was his second fight as a martial artist where he lost to Jose Caceres via a rear-naked choke. Paul’s own face has replaced the face of Caceres in the photo to extend the troll.

2. Conor Mcgregor

The second fighter at the top right corner is ‘The Pride of Ireland’ Conor McGregor. This is a photo from his recent knockout loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 257 in January 2021. McGregor got finished in the second round which forced the fighters to head for an upcoming decider at UFC 264.

3. Daniel Cormier

The photo at the bottom left features the former UFC champion, Daniel Cormier. This is a post-fight image from UFC 214 where ‘DC’ lost his light heavyweight belt to Jon Jones. This was a rematch between the duo where ‘Bones’ stopped Cormier with a head kick in the third round.
