Cris Cyborg ‘Praying’ For Tyron Woodley

The current Bellator Women’s Featherweight Champion Cris Cyborg recently reacted to Saturday night’s high-profile boxing match between YouTuber-turned pro-boxer Jake Paul and the former UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley that some fans believed it to be rigged as video clip started surfacing. She sent out a series of Tweets and also prayed for Woodley for his safety following his disappointing loss against Paul.

Jake Paul called out Masvidal following his KO victory over Woodley. Masvidal also recently responded in an Instagram post, suggesting that ‘The Problem Child’ should come over to the UFC and try his hand at MMA. Paul also called out UFC fighters Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz who were present at the event but left before the main event concluded. In his post-fight interview with Ariel Helwani, Paul said:

“Hey, this guy [Woodley] is a legend. Don’t take anything away from him in his career as a UFC champion. I respect him for taking this fight on 2 weeks notice. because Tommy Fury is a bi**h, and he backed out of the fight! I’ve knocked out every single person that I’ve fought… And Masvidal and Nate Diaz, ya’ll are bi***es for leaving this arena, I know you don’t want that sh*t. I’ll take both of y’ll next.”

Paul, the YouTube sensation-turned-boxer, already had notched a split decision victory over the former UFC champion in August. But the opportunity for a rematch arose after Paul’s original opponent, Tommy Fury, dropped out weeks before their scheduled bout due to a severe chest infection and a broken rib.

In the end, Paul once again exerted dominance over Woodley and followed through on his promise of starting a new knockout streak with a KO early in the sixth round.
