Former two division UFC champion Daniel Cormier was shaking his head at Tyron Woodley's knockout loss to social media star Jake Paul.
Last Saturday night in Tampa, Paul scored a brutal one-punch knockout of Woodley in the sixth round of their Showtime PPV rematch.
Woodley, a former UFC champion and at one time regarded as one of the best fighters in mixed martial arts, has poked fun at his own defeat by creating a meme contest - with a $5,000 prize for whoever creates the best meme of the knockout loss.
Paul (5-0, 4 KOs) had previously beaten Woodley by way of an eight round split decision back August.
Cormier was not very happy with Woodley's loss to Paul and the social media contest in the aftermath.
“T-Wood’s my boy, I love T-Wood. That was not good, that’s a bad look. And you know what’s worse? The after. I don’t know what T-Wood’s doing on social media. He posts the knockout, he makes a contest about it—It’s like Jake Paul is beating these dudes so bad that they start to make fun of themselves," Cormier said, according to MMA Mania.
“This is the problem with those guys going to fight Jake Paul because look at what happens. I’m watching the fight on Saturday — streaming the fight on my phone — and Tyron’s in there kind of doing his thing and then Jake Paul starts to build some momentum.
“Bro, that right hand that he hit Tyron with it was actually pretty slick because what he did was he feinted at him. He feinted at T-Wood, T-Wood dropped his hand, so that when he threw the second one and the hand dropped it wasn’t an overhand right, it was a hook. That’s how you know he got the brother, because T-Wood said, ‘He got me with the overhand right.’ He don’t even know what got him.
“My biggest issue is these guys go in there to fight this dude, they lose to him. Ben Askren was immediately almost making fun of himself. It’s almost like you’re so embarrassed that you lost to the Disney kid or the YouTuber that you start to almost become self-depreciating [sic]. It’s bad. It’s bad what’s happening to these dudes."
