YouTuber Jake Paul knocked out former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley in the sixth round at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida, Saturday night.
Paul previously beat Woodley last summer by split decision.
The fight ended abruptly after Paul threw a hard right ball, sending Woodley head-on onto the carpet just over two minutes into the sixth round.

“This is as real as it gets, just like my right hand,” Paul said afterwards, according to ESPN.
He said he had “respect” for Woodley, whom he called a “legend.” Woodley replaced Tommy Fury, the half-brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, just two weeks before the fight after Fury was forced to withdraw from the bout on medical grounds.
