The YouTuber has delivered a heavy blow to the former UFC champion in the sixth round knocking him out cold.


YouTube and social media star Jake Paul defeated former UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley in the main event of the ShowTime pay-per-view "Leave No Doubt" held in Florida on Saturday night.

In the sixth round, Paul feinted with a jab to the body and came over the top with a flush right hand knocking his opponent out cold, securing a rematch victory and his fifth victory in his professional boxing career (four by KOs).

"This is as real as it f***ing gets, just like my right hand. I told you I was going to f*** him up," the winner said.

However, he later showed respect to the defeated fighter as they hugged at a post-fight conference.

"Woodley is a legend, don't take anything away from his career as a UFC champion. That's a tough guy right there, he's a legend. He tried to catch the punch in front and like a lumberjack, timber."

After the bout, Paul called out UFC stars Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz, both attending the event, urging them to get out of their current fight deals with President "Daddy Dana" White.

Paul and Woodley already met in the ring on August 29 when the social media influencer won by split decision.

Initially, this Saturday Paul’s fight was supposed to be held with Tommy Fury, the half-brother of British boxing champion Tyson Fury, but he withdrew from the event two weeks before due to a broken rib and a bacterial infection. Woodley, who was longing for a rematch since his summer loss, pushed the fight and even made a tattoo with Paul’s name on his middle finger which was the condition for another fight. Later, the tattoo turned out to be fake, however.

24-year-old Paul now has a record of five wins in five matches and an achievement of knocking out every opponent he has met so far.
