‘Sh*t seems fishy’: Tyron Woodley demands Jake Paul rematch in hometown after feeling ‘robbed’ by local favorite

‘Sh*t seems fishy’: Tyron Woodley demands Jake Paul rematch in hometown after feeling ‘robbed’ by local favorite

Ex-UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley has challenged boxing upstart Jake Paul to a rematch, after feeling was robbed by a hometown decision on the cards in Cleveland following an eight-round bout.

The veteran lost via split decision to the 24-year-old, but had his moments in their showdown.

Nearly knocking the Ohio native through the ropes in the fourth round at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, Woodley took to Instagram to address the matter. 

"Thanks for all the support. Really appreciate the love," he wrote.

"Let’s talk."

"Ropes can keep you up and NO DRUG TEST?" he asked, while sharing pictures of said incident in the fourth round where he almost lifted Paul out of the squared circle.

"[What the f*ck did] they take my pee for in the back?"

"Run it back!" he demanded.

"Dave Chapelle said so!" Woodley claimed, in reference to the popular comedian and fight fan. 

"Sh*t seem fishy in Cleveland. Let’s run it in St. Louis."

Hailing from Ferguson some 12 miles out of the Missouri metropolis, Woodley may have to wait for another shot at Paul, who could face Tommy Fury next. 

Simultaneously, however, Paul has vowed last night's combatants can "run it back" if Woodley gets an "I love Jake Paul" tattoo first.
