Mike Tyson fought Roy Jones Jr. on Saturday night.
Somehow, their big bout was almost outdone by the preliminary “undercard” fight, which came from YouTuber Jake Paul taking on Slam Dunk champion Nate Robinson.
As assumed by many, a guy with controversial social media posts wouldn’t stand a chance. They were wrong: Paul wound up triumphant over Robinson, scoring a first-round knockout.
With people ridiculing the former Knicks guard for losing the matchup so fast, the fight created an ambush of memes and jokes. However, musician Rick Ross chose to show Robinson some love.
“We still f*ck with you Nate,” the Maybach Music rapper said in a video he shared to his Instagram story.
“Everything good, n***a. We know you play basketball, n***a, you ain’t bought. Somebody tricked you into getting that check, we still f*ck with you.” The next day, Ross continued to support Robinson, writing, “But this what I want you to do, Nate,” he said.
“I want you to still go get you a 50-piece WingStop and find a way to enjoy the day. All the memes going on. Everybody face down, ass up. I get it, I get it. But Nate, you went in there and got you a check, just look at the positive.”
