JAKE PAUL goaded Tommy Fury with a 'this could have been you' T-shirt.
The American weighed in yesterday ahead of his rematch with Tyron Woodley.
As his shirt pointed out, however, it could have been Fury appearing in the lucrative bout.
The rivals had agreed to fight tonight, in what would have been the climax to a war of words that has gotten personal.
But with Fury, 22, picking up an injury, he was forced to pull out.
Appearing next to Woodley at the weigh-in, Paul smugly wore a T-shirt featuring the message: "Tommy this could have been you."
Beneath the slogan was an arrow pointing toward Woodley.
The purse would have been significant for Fury.

For their first bout in August, Paul and Woodley both earned £1,453,610 even before PPV numbers had even come in.
For his fight with Anthony Taylor on the same card, Fury pocketed a comparatively measly £10,900.
In addition to mocking him with his shirt, Paul also appeared to steal one of his rival's taunts in the press conference.
Fury had likened fighting a YouTuber like the Problem Child to 'robbing a bank'.
Talking about rematching Woodley, a fighter that he beat in the summer, Paul said: "I just thought to myself… it's funny how these 'professionals', like Tommy Fury who's considered a professional boxer, get sick and don't want to fight.
"I've fought sick, I've fought hurt – you've got to go in there and get the job done.
"And then they're like 'oh, you got Tyron Woodley now', no problem – that's why I've got the ski mask on.
"They're going to give me a big bag to go and beat the guy I already beat? It's a bank robbery."
