After defeating AnEsonGib, Nate Robinson, and Ben Askren, social media star Jake Paul is all set to face another former MMA champion, Tyron Woodley on 29th August.
In his brief professional boxing career, Jake Paul has gone 3-0 by knocking out a YouTuber, an NBA player, and a former MMA champion in quick time. But this time the situation is different, as Woodley is by far the best opponent that Paul is about to face. In his UFC career, Woodley has won 19 games and from which 7 have come in the form of knockouts.
We are just halfway down to 2021, and it’s already been an eventful year for the Paul brothers. Back in June, we witnessed the fight of the decade, in the form of Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather Jr. And now, his brother Jake Paul is all set to take on MMA champion Tyron Woodley. Even now, if you need a strong reason to be excited about the Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley clash – the loser will have to get a tattoo showcasing his love towards the winner of the fight.
Reason Behind Jake Paul Vs Tyron Woodley Fight
Jake Paul and his brother Logan Paul are young YouTubers who have now turned into boxers. Being young, Paul’s brothers have the support of youth by their side, and most importantly, a lot of YouTube cash that gives them the access to do whatever they want to do in their spare time.
Most of the time, fights between two widely popular superstars aren’t for the record books. But in fact, they’re for the bank books – Logan Paul Vs Mayweather is the best example to justify the sentence. By now, Jack Paul has won all the 3 fights that he had been part of. But till now, he hasn’t faced any professional boxer who is in his prime. All of these Paul brother’s fights grab a lot of global attention, increase their fame, and most importantly, adds a lot of cash to their bank balance.
Tyron Woodley taunted Jake Paul over his fight with retired MMA fighter Ben Askren. And this trash talk from both ends resulted in the planned Jake Paul Vs Tyron Woodley fight.
What’s The Deal About The Tattoo Bet?
We have seen challengers baiting out their bungalows, cars, and even girlfriends over the controversy. But this isn’t the case with Paul and Woodley’s fight. The loser will have to complete a very unique bet on his defeat. If Jake gets defeated by Tyron, he will have to get a tattoo saying, “I love Tyron Woodley”. And in case the opposite happens, then Tyron will have to get a tattoo saying, “I love Jake Paul”. However, both the superstars already have lots of tattoos on their body. So, they won’t mind adding one more to the list.
Jake Paul confirms he will have a tattoo artist at the Tyron Woodley fight to tattoo the winners name on the loser.

Jake Paul Vs Tyron Woodley: Winner Prediction
Tyron Woodley won his first and the only welterweight title back in 2016, and was able to defend it successfully consequently 4 times. But since then, he has seen a great downfall in his UFC career after getting defeated by Kamaru Usman in 2019 where he lost his title.
The UFC released Woodley earlier this year after his four consecutive losses. And now, he is trying his luck in boxing by facing an orthodox boxer, Jake Paul.
On the other hand, Jake Paul in his young boxing career is still undefeated. Being young, and having the support of youth on his back, It wouldn’t be surprising that Paul will manage to maintain his undefeated streak by defeating Tyron Woodley. Ironically, Tyron Woodley is one of the closest friends of Askren, whom Paul has already defeated in a 1-v-1 fight – how’s that for a coincidence?
Nevertheless, let us know in the comment section who is going to win the fight. Will it be, “I love Jake Paul” or “I love Tyron Woodley”.
