Jake is going to absolutely STARCH Woodley this Sunday. Fact,” Logan Paul wrote in a recent tweet. ‘The Problem Child’ last fought the former Bellator MMA and ONE Championship welterweight champion, Ben Askren, and earned a first-round T/KO finish in his favor. However, Askren is primarily a grappler and has never been known for his striking skills.

Woodley will be a major step up in competition for Paul as T-Wood has had some vicious knockout wins in his MMA career. It will be interesting to see how the fight unfolds when the bell rings this weekend.

But, if he can actually starch T-Wood, remains to be seen. Woodley is a long-time student of sweet science. However, he hasn’t looked like his usual self as a fighter in his recent MMA fights, one might argue. So, which version of the former UFC champion shows up, might actually be a deciding factor on how the contest plays out.
