Former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley is going to be executive producing a TV show alongside broadcasting giant ABC studios. Tyron Woodley has taken on several non-MMA endeavors even before his release from the UFC last year. A music producer, rapper, actor, and entrepreneur, Woodley has a variety of interests and detests being restricted to the mold of just being a fighter.

‘The chosen one’ is getting ready for his boxing debut against YouTube sensation Jake Paul this weekend. Woodley, with his experience as a champion and knockout power in both hands, is arguably the toughest test for the YouTuber turned professional boxer.  

In a recent interview with MMA fighting’s Ariel Helwani, Woodley made the following statements, brimming with confidence and excitement for his upcoming projects.

“You can’t dim me no more. I’m lit. Like, I’m serious. Everything. Musically, I’m on a whole new level. I got some ignorant music, ignorant television show, my own television show: writer, producer, signed with ABC studios, written by the creators of Dave. My own. I’m gonna be actually executive producing it. Who does that? Show me another MMA fighters.” 

 

Following a series of losses to some of the most decorated and dangerous welterweights in the division, such as Kamaru Usman, Colby Covington, and Vicente Luque, Woodley moved on from the sport of MMA.

A win over Jake Paul this weekend will not only increase his stock with his estranged MMA fan base but also help him publicize his television and musical projects. And looking at his demeanor a few days before the fight, it seems like Woodley is more than ready for this upcoming challenge.

Tyron Woodley will most certainly go down as one of the greatest fighters in the welterweight division. Primarily known for being explosive on the feet and having a solid wrestling background, Woodley defended his belt four times.

However, moving onto the next chapter in his life, Woodley has tried his hand at professional boxing. The former champ has been training with Floyd Mayweather in order to perfect his craft and is hoping to face far more experienced competition after his fight with Jake Paul.
