“I just knocked out a five-time UFC champion and embarrassed your whole company,” Paul said after the fight in a message to UFC president Dana White.

“Please let me get Kamaru Usman. Please let me get [Nate] Diaz. Please let me get [Jorge] Masvidal. Please let me get [Conor] McGregor. Because I’m going to embarrass them too. I promise you that, Dana. I promise you that.”

Paul has called out these opponents before. Diaz tweeted at Paul in November that the YouTube star would “get smoked in a real fight.”

Masvidal said Paul “can’t f—ing afford me.” He later called on Paul to step into the octagon and vowed to break his jaw.

Paul, a Cleveland native, was initially set to take on an actual boxer in Tommy Fury. But the younger brother of the heavyweight champion had to drop out last minute because of a medical issue. Woodley returned to the card for his second fight against Paul. Woodley lost via split decision in the summer.

Paul, wearing a British flag-themed outfit, mocked Fury when he entered the ring.

“Hey Tommy, wish you could’ve been here but watching from a TV is cool too,” a taunting message on the outfit said.
