Speaking on IMPAULSIVE Podcast, Jake Paul said, “We did a little face-off, while we were doing a photoshoot for the assets for the posters, and no one was there besides our teams. There was no media, and it wasn’t for the public to see. And I saw a different Tyron [Woodley] than I saw in the public face-off.”

Will Jake Paul punish Tyron Woodley?

‘The Chosen One’ Tyron Woodley will be the first big test in Jake Paul’s combat career. Although ‘The Problem Child’ has a record of 3-0, none of those wins have come against an elite striker. Hence, Tyron Woodley will be the first champion-level striker to share the ring with ‘The Problem Child’.

Although Tyron Woodley departed from the UFC after his fourth consecutive loss, he is still a top-tier combatant. Hence, the former champion can bring a harsh reality into the display for Paul. Before losing his UFC world title, ‘T-Wood’ staged a sensational run in the sport. Hence, Jake Paul might not have an easy night against him.
