Tyron Woodley and Jake Paul will fight on August 29. However, much more than pride and money will be on the line when they meet each other in the ring. This is because Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley shook on a bizarre tattoo bet during a press conference.

Jake initially offered his purse if he lost and encouraged Woodley to do the same. With millions of dollars on the line, Woodley did not reply to the wager.

Hence, in their press conference in July, Paul made another bet with the former UFC welterweight champ.

“So how about this, let’s make a new bet right now,” Paul said to Woodley on stage. “Let’s make a new bet — if I beat you, you have to get ‘I love Jake Paul’ tattooed on you. But if you beat me, I get ‘I love Tyron Woodley’ tattooed on me and you have to post it on your Instagram feed. Deal or no deal? Are you confident or not?”

Woodley agreed and both of them shook on it. Later, in a podcast with True Geordie, Geordie asked Jake how seriously he would implement the bet.

Jake replied, saying, “Yeah, a 100%, I have a tattoo artist. One of the biggest tattoo artists in the world, Tatu Baby, is coming to the fight, and she has her equipment and so after the fight, I’m sending her to his locker room to get it done, I swear.”
