Youtuber turned Boxer Jake Paul is standing his ground and has no interest in apologizing for the incident regarding Tyron Woodley’s mother that occurred during his press conference with Tyron Woodley.
At the pre-fight press conference of Paul vs Woodley, both the parties seem to have gotten into a quarrel. The incident happened after a few of Jake Paul’s team members were trash-talking to Tyron Woodley’s mother. This thing caught Woodley’s attention who got pretty furious after that. Things started to get a bit tense before both the parties were separated from each other.

After the incident, Tyron Woodley expressed his anger and hatred towards Jake Paul and his team.
“I’m looking, trying to do the faceoff, and I hear him going back and forth with my mom,” Woodley told MMA Junkie and other media in a scrum after the situation subdued. “Anytime it’s going back and forth, that’s unacceptable. I don’t care who you are, what nationality you are, that’s unacceptable. So I said, ‘Is you f*cking talking to my mom now?’”
“Then I hear Jake say something, ‘Yeah, he’s talking to your mom.’ He don’t know no better. He don’t understand this lifestyle. I’ll shake this whole f*cking room in a way you ain’t never seen. F*ck the UFC sh*t, f*ck the knockout sh*t, I will start f*cking hurting people, and you’ll see orange droppin, hitting the floor.”
“What you’re not gonna do is talk to my mother in any type of way,” Woodley said. “I don’t give a f*ck if you’re a whole op, if you killed my friend, I’m never gonna speak on nobody’s mom.”
Jake Paul says he is not sorry
After the press conference, Jake Paul talked about the incident and said he obviously didn’t want it to happen but he is definitely not going to say sorry for what happened.
“Of course (I didn’t want it to happen),” Paul told MMA Junkie after the incident. “This is Women’s Equality Day. If it was literally anything else, I’m just sitting there talking about how much I love my mom, how much I love my girlfriend, and of course, there has to be an altercation involving females. It sucks. Just everything about it just looks messy. We’re trying to have a professional event here, and now things are more personal. Probably going to need more security at all these places. Things just aren’t cordial anymore. Tensions will definitely be higher going into this fight.”
Paul revealed that Woodley’s mom and his mom are good friends and they sat together for the event but he has no idea what happened after that.
“It’s really weird,” Paul said. “They’ve been friends since they first met in Miami at the first faceoff ever. My mom and Tyron’s mom, they’ve sat together and talked. It just seems weird. How did this happen? Everyone got involved and shit talk and accusation and everything going back and forth. It’s just messy.”
Jake also went on to reveal the emotions attached to the fight and this fight has now gotten personal for him too.
“I think it’s more personal for me too,” Paul said. “Just seeing his team act the way they did. He probably is sitting there saying the same thing. He wants to get all gangster. But they were also being super disrespectful. My team is being professional. Were they in the wrong? Yeah. But they’re never just going to come out of pocket and just act up like that. There had to have been something that built up, then it explodes. Everything is more personal, and I’ll make him and his team pay for that.”
“Hell no – we’re not sorry,” Paul said. “We’re not sorry at all. Should we not have done it? Maybe. But we’re not sorry.”
