After Jake Paul won the fight via a split decision, it was up to Woodley to honor the wager. In the post-match interview in the ring, Woodley immediately demanded a rematch. Jake ‘The Problem Child’ Paul agreed on the condition that Woodley would get the ‘I Love Jake Paul’ tattoo on his body.

A month after the fight, Tyron ‘The Chosen One’ Woodley revealed in an Instagram live with Ariel Helwani that he planned to get the tattoo made this weekend.

Woodley said, “I’m gonna just let the week go through and see what happens. I think the most sensible thing to do is run it back, I think I’m getting this tattoo Saturday, by the way. Yeah, I just feel like I should do it because it’s a solid thing to do. I’m going to do it on Saturday.”

Helwani asked Woodley if he would follow Jake’s instructions on the tattoo and where he would get it. Woodley replied saying, “Not neck, not face. I should have put it across my f*cking knuckles. To me it’s like this, if a dude wants to pay me to whip his a*s, since he supposedly ‘paid me and promoted the fight’, then I love you. (Laughs). Because you’re that dumb.”

What’s next for Tyron Woodley?

The former UFC champ shifted to boxing after a rough couple of years in the UFC. The last time Woodley won inside the octagon was three years ago. So when he got the opportunity to fight Paul, he took it in a heartbeat.

However, Paul does not seem interested in fighting Woodley anymore as he called out Tommy Fury and a few UFC fighters. The real question remains whether Jake Paul will agree to the rematch after Woodley gets the tattoo.
