Tyron Woodley's mother Deborah Woodley has revealed that she believes Jake Paul could have "condoned" the behaviour after J'Leon Love reportedly told her it was his "job".
Woodley faces YouTube star Paul in his maiden boxing clash at the weekend, with Paul keen to add another former UFC star to his professional boxing resume to date.
And the press-conference ahead of the fight descended into chaos, with a heated row marring the end of the events between Paul's team and Woodley's mother that prompted a wild reaction from the former UFC welterweight champion.
And Woodley's mum Deborah has revealed that she "doesn't know" why Love was talking to her at the press-conference.
"I don't know (why J'Leon Love was talking to me). He said that he was doing his job. Maybe that's what he gets paid to do," said Woodley told The Mac Life.
"Well, he made a statement: 'yeah, he talking to you mom'. So, I don't know. I hate to think that he would (condone)."
Despite the altercation with Paul's team, the 24-year-old's teammate DCUT revealed that he "would not apologise" for his actions in the row, stating that "emotions were high".
"I'm not sorry," DCUT told The Schmo.
"I'm not sorry because I didn't do anything wrong. But my team, we talked and made sure to use a different approach next time. There are different professional approaches we could have taken, but at the end of the day, I'm not sorry. I did what I did.
"Obviously, everyone in here is cheering who they're going for. And, you know, we're strong Jake Paul fans over here. We worked hard for this and we sacrificed everything for our guy. So, you know, we're gonna cheer for our guy."

Paul also had a verbal exchange with British light-heavyweight Tommy Fury at the conference, who he plans to set up a future clash with after the Briton fighting his sparring partner Anthony Taylor on the undercard.
And the YouTuber has revealed that he is personally "topping up the fighter's purses" lower down on the card, as he looks to continue his campaign for a better pay for all fighters.
"It's coming out of my pockets for sure," Paul explained to Mirror Fighting . "Like, directly out of my purse.
"Everyone on the card is getting the biggest pay-day that they've ever had as a fighter and that's just part of my movement.
"Look, these fighters deserve more and I want everyone to be excited and I want everyone to know that we as fighters should take care of each other.
"That's how it should be, I think, let's put the power back into the fighters' hands and that's really what I'm trying to show.
"If you bring the audience, then you should be able to do whatever deals and fight whoever you want."
Paul has revealed his previous intentions to become world champion, and will prioritise a clash with pound-for-pound king Canelo Alvarez over the likes of Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather.
