JAKE PAUL has come out fighting against claims that UFC fighter Tyron Woodley wasn't allowed to knock him out as 'nonsense'. The youtube star also had a message for Conor McGregor.
Former Disney star Paul will fight ex-Love Islander Tommy Fury. Fury is the brother of Heavyweight champion Tyson. Paul fights the younger Fury in December.
Dillon Danis, the Bellator middleweight and Brazilian jiu-jitsu states that Woodley had a clause in his contract prohibiting him from finishing the YouTuber in their August bout.

MMA fighter and boxing champion Claressa Shields echoed Danis claims, which Paul rebuffed as "bulls***t'.
The Problem Child said:
“Look, it’s a bunch of losers trying to make s*** up to get in the headlines.
“And to get reporters like yourself to ask about that exact question and put their name into the mix so they can get a little bit of clout.
“Having a ‘no knockout clause’ in a contract – I’ve never heard of that.
“It’s highly illegal, I would be in jail.
"That’s like rigging a fight. I would be in prison if that was a real thing.
The 24-year-has other plans on his mind though as he has called out with former two-division UFC champion McGregor.
He said of a potential showdown with The Notorious: “It’s very real, I think that fight happens in the next 36/48 months for sure.
It makes financial sense.
“I don’t have a message for Conor. At this point, he needs me more than I need him.
“He’s a f*****g loser, drunk motherf***er running around with his bulls, doing all this crazy s**t
“The guy’s a mess, so like I said – he needs me more than I need him.”
