UFC star O’Malley says Woodley has ‘completely destroyed his f***ing legacy’

SEAN O’MALLEY said Tyron Woodley’s brutal knockout loss to Jake Paul has ‘completely destroyed his f***ing legacy’.

Paul in August beat ex-UFC champion Woodley but over eight rounds in a split-decision.

The YouTuber, 24, was then set to fight Tommy Fury, 22, until the unbeaten Brit pulled out with a broken rib and chest infection.

Woodley, 39, instead filled in on late notice but was savagely sparked out with a massive right hand in round six.

His decision to rematch Paul would have been a financially smart one, but could backfire on his reputation.

UFC bantamweight O’Malley, 27, said: “Dude, it completely destroyed his f***ing legacy.”

Paul has now knocked out every opponent he has faced, YouTuber ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37, joining Woodley.

Askren, a grappler with limited striking skills, was the first professional fighter the social media sensation beat.

And O’Malley questioned whether Woodley can overcome the loss like Askren did.

He said: “That could affect Tyron Woodley big time, or he could just be completely unattached to that and still be happy.

“That’s a f***ing skill that you have to acquire.”

O’Malley continued: “Well, I think with Ben, Ben supposed, well kinda supposed to win.

“But the way he looks I feel like just makes it feel like an excuse for him.”
