Social media star Jake Paul defeated former UFC champion Tyron Woodley by eight-round split decision in their cruiserweight headliner last Sunday night (August 20), part of the Showtime pay-per-view (PPV) event that took place in Cleveland, Ohio .
That may come as a surprise to anyone who follows “The Chosen One” on Instagram. Woodley posted a short music video demonstrating his juking and jiving as Paul huffs and puffs his way to safety, claiming to be the father of “The Problem Child”.
UFC fans were not impressed.
“You’ve let us down,” wrote one commenter.
“So sad.. you said this was for the culture … this is embarrassing,” added one follower.
“Don’t talk shit he outboxed you, you did bad,” said another.
Woodley’s defense was former lightweight champion Anthony “Showtime” Pettis, who loves “The Chosen One”, retired from UFC earlier this year — only to lose a decision on his first appearance under another promotion.
No one outside the Woodley camp seems motivated for a Paul rematch, especially with other fighters like Tommy Fury waiting patiently in line. Unless, of course, “The Chosen One” gets a “Problem Child” tattoo and posts it on Instagram.
