Tyron Woodley could be curled up in a ball right now in a dark room, and nobody would blame him. But ever since he was brutally knocked out by YouTube-star-turned-boxer Jake Paul last Saturday night, the former UFC welterweight champion has handled the devastating defeat like a professional and with a positive attitude.

Woodley is leaning into it, and three days later, he’s even having fun with it.

Case in point: On Tuesday, Woodley announced that he paid a fan $5,000 for creating the best meme depicting the vicious knockout in which he was slept and face-planted onto the canvas.

The meme is pretty great. Created by Instagram user @chrisashley, it shows Woodley face-planting through the canvas and into another dimension where he eventually falls onto a sofa in a room with Conor McGregor, Ben Askren and Nate Robinson all knocked out – the latter two of which also were by Paul.
