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.
Der 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, sagte: “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, und pensionierter UFC-Weltergewichtler 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.
Er sagte: “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: “Gut, 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.”
