Woodley was one of the best MMA fighters on the planet. Some people said the former welterweight champion was on course to eclipse Georges St-Pierre’s record as the greatest 170-pound MMA fighter ever. However, his UFC career came to an abrupt end and he wound up boxing YouTuber Jake Paul.
Paul defeated Woodley after a massive build-up and a boring bout. But the pair agreed to a rematch on short notice. This became a career-defining mistake for Woodley because Paul savagely knocked him out. It was a major indignity because of Paul’s lack of combat sports experience (via Draft Kings).
