Video: Tyron Woodley tried to flex on Jake Paul backstage, got silenced by pro boxer instead

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion Tyron Woodley is a longtime friend and training partner of retired 170-pound wrestler Ben Askren, who also competed for UFC, as well as Bellator MMA and ONE Championship.

“The Chosen One” made his way to the locker room of Jake Paul to watch the YouTube star get his hands wrapped and gloved for his “Funky” boxing match, and in true Woodley fashion, couldn’t seem to keep from getting himself into trouble.

In the video above, Woodley can be seen trading verbal jabs with Super Middleweight boxer J’Leon Love, a former Golden Gloves champion signed to Al Haymon. The artist formerly known as “T-Wood” also had a few words for Paul.

Unfortunately for Woodley, now 39, his recent run inside the cage has left him without much room for bravado.

Askren would find himself losing by way of first-round knockout, so it appears the Paul locker room had the last laugh. Not that it kept Woodley from sending a few post-fight insults toward the “hoes” who talked back.

“Begging so hard to get your prostitute a gig,” Woodley wrote on Twitter. “You trying to fight everyone BUT me! When you realize I’m not with the child’s play you froze like winter and started stuttering! You want real smoke or you wanna keep padding yo bitch ass record?”

Something tells me we haven’t heard the last of this beef.
