Jake Paul took on Tyron Woodley in just his fourth fight as a professional this weekend. After signing a multi-fight deal, ‘The Problem Child’ made his debut on the Showtime network in front of a packed house at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, Ohio. However, the fight did not play out as Paul would have wanted. Going into the fight, Paul stated he would knockout and embarrass Tyron Woodley, which he did not come close to achieving.

A few hours after that, Jake Paul took to Twitter once again to share an update on Tyron Woodley’s tattoo. He said, “Tyron’s tattoo guidelines: 1. 3×2 inches at least 2. Can’t get it covered 3. Permanent 4. Must post on social media 5. Has to be visible with shorts and shirt on.”

Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley 2- a possibility?

Following the fight, in their post-fight interview, Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley agreed to an immediate rematch on one condition. If ‘The Chosen One’ got a tattoo saying ‘I love Jake Paul’, ‘The Problem Child’ would oblige to an immediate rematch. The pair shook on it and that was the end of the night.

In his last four fights in the UFC, Woodley was subject to criticism from fans and pundits alike. Woodley was criticized for being extremely passive and having little to no offense. He was guilty of the same against Paul. ‘The Chosen One’ had Paul seriously hurt at one point in the fight. However, rather than seizing the opportunity and piling on the pressure, Woodley sat back. 

Tyron Woodley is adamant that he will get the tattoo and secure a win in the rematch. However, it is unlikely that he will get an immediate rematch given Paul has his eyes set on bigger targets such as Nate Diaz and Tommy Fury, among others. It will be interesting to see if Paul and Woodley honor their bet or if the YouTuber ultimately ends up fighting someone else.
