According to Booker T, Tyron Woodley doesn’t have a lot of moves. He sticks to a couple of moves and that’s where the disadvantage lies. Hence, it’s not going to be difficult for Jake Paul to use his quick footwork to put down Tyron Woodley.

“The only thing we’ve seen Tyron Woodley throw in his whole combat career was a right hand. We’ve never seen Tyron Woodley do anything. He’s throwing a right hand, he’s hit a boy with it. You know, rushed the guy with a little blitz. But we’ve never really seen Tyron Woodley go out and stand up and find a guy. He’s always on his back foot, he’s always looking to get hit.”

“What I’m saying, so the guy like Jake Paul, with his footwork alone, is going to be able to put there and maneuver Tyron Woodley in a position and Tyron Woodley is going to get knocked out.”

Booker T explains why Tyron Woodley is taking part in this match

The veteran Superstar explained that even if somebody’s career is over, the money still flows. Therefore, Woodley knows the money that’s going to come to him from this match, and that’s the motivating factor for Tyron Woodley.

“It’s not gonna be a great fight or anything like that. Tyron Woodley is going into this fight for one reason and one reason only, that’s for payday. To get some money. Because his UFC career is over.”

Finally, Booker T reveals his favourite. He believes Jake Paul is already an enormous hit prior to the match regardless of what most people say.
