News recently broke that the rematch with Woodley only did 65K PPV buys, a staggering drop from Paul’s previous fights. Some of Jake Paul’s biggest rivals in Jorge Masvidal and Dillon Danis came out and trolled him for his low buy rate. ‘Gamebred’ Masvidal even went so far as to detach his name from Paul as the two had been jawing back and forth to fight.

Jake Paul rubbished the rumors of his disclosed PPV numbers and said the actual metrics are still not finalized. However, Paul admitted that things certainly didn’t go according to plan on the business end of things. ‘The Problem Child’ also seemingly blamed Tommy Fury for the drop in numbers and lauded Tyron Woodley for accepting the late-notice fight.

Jake Paul’s knockout over Tyron Woodley

‘The Problem Child’ earned arguably the most impressive knockout of his professional career when he faced off against Woodley the second time. The fight was lacking in action until the finish, and both men continually engaged in the clinch. In fact, even the commentators remarked how slowly paced the fight truly was, even when compared to their first fight.

However, everything would change in an instant once Jake Paul landed a well-placed right hand on Woodley’s temple. The punch was set up with a fake that led ‘T-Wood’ to drop his guard momentarily. The subsequent blow was as clean as they come, and Tyron Woodley folded like a lawn chair almost instantly.
