Retired UFC champion Henry Cejudo, and The Schmo discussed this bout and Cejudo also felt the bout was boring. He said, “Man, I tell you what. This fight had to be about sleeping until that sixth-round came and it’s unfortunate because Tyron Woodley was actually winning that boring fight. But he happened to just keep those, he just kept that left hand down, and slowly but surely Jake Paul threw that hammer and knocked him out.”

“The fight was boring, the knockout was great. I mean, talk about a complete face plant by Tyron Woodley. … Jake Paul, whether we hate him or love him, the dude has taken this by storm and if you really think about it man, Tyron Woodley is making this dude into a star. Made him into a star because the simple fact that he beat a former UFC champion.”
