Leather-clad Tyron Woodley stars in ‘Edward Scissorhands’ rap video (seriously)

New, comments

I know a lot of YouTube commenters are grabbing the low-hanging fruit and I can’t blame them, this latest rap video featuring Tyron Woodley is a treasure trove of one-liners, but I will admit to being fascinated by its existence.

At some point, a phone call like this took place:

Rapper: “What if I dressed up like a character from an old Tim Burton movie and got to rap alongside a former UFC champion?”

Producer: “You want to cosplay Beetlejuice and drop rhymes with Chuck Liddell?”

Rapper: “Yes, but not really. Just hear me out.”

I think I’m equally fascinated by Woodley’s outfit choice because whether he realizes it or not, he’s paying homage to the second-in-command of the Toothpick Gang from Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” back in 1982.

Observe:

Speaking of YouTube comments, here are a couple of my favorites:

—Tyron Woodley’s music reminds me of Brendan Schaub’s comedy.

—T-Wood’s performance vs. Usman was greater than this whole track.

Woodley is expected to return to the Octagon opposite Leon Edwards in the UFC London main event in March.
