Although several MMA colleagues had advised Woodley to duck the bet, ‘T-Wood’, who seemed adamant about the rematch, inked his middle finger. Subsequently, he revealed the tattoo on social media, demanding an immediate rematch from Jake Paul.

Jake Paul reacted to the scene and mocked Tyron Woodley. He expressed himself on Twitter, citing Woodley’s urgency towards bagging another hefty paycheck. That said, Paul didn’t clarify whether the rematch is a done deal.

Despite a verbal agreement, there are no official contracts signed yet. So, the rematch is still unofficial and Jake Paul can explore several options. 4-0 as a professional, ‘The Problem Child’ is also rumored to compete against ‘TNT’ Tommy Fury, somewhere down the line. Thus, there’s a lot in store for Jake Paul.

Nevertheless, re-matching Tyron Woodley can still be the best decision from the lot. Having faced the UFC elite in-ring, Paul is aware of the challenge that ‘T-Wood’ can bring. Moreover, as he couldn’t claim a KO in the first fight, a second collision can help him repair things.
