Sean O’Malley feels that following on from his knockout loss Tyron Woodley has ruined the legacy he had built for himself across MMA. Woodley has lost back-to-back boxing matches against Jake Paul with the rematch ending by a devastating KO.

“Dude, it completely destroyed his f*cking legacy,” O’Malley 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*cking skill that you have to require.” (transcribed by
