Paul defeated Ben Askren via first-round knockout in his last fight. However, he will have a major step up in competition against Tyron Woodley as, unlike Askren, he has a good striking background. Woodley also has a few vicious knockout finishes in his MMA career. Whether those skills can transition inside the squared ring, remains to be seen.
