Jake Paul takes on UFC’s Tyron Woodley in his third fight in nine months, can the YouTube star upset the bookmarkers once again?
Jake Paul will certainly being stepping up levels of opposition as he face former UFC world champion Tyron Woodley in a boxing match.
Back in November, featuring on the co-main event of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr, the YouTube star once again scored a ruthless knockout when he violently knocked out NBA star Nate Robinson, but this time he is facing a former UFC champion who can bang!

The former UFC welterweight champion is coming off a four-fight losing streak in the UFC after receiving losses from the likes of 170-pound titlist Kamaru Usman, former title challengers Gilbert Burns and Colby Covington, and rising contender Vicente Luque.
Tyron Woodley is close friends with Ben Askren who Jack Paul KO’d in his most recent fight, Woodley will be looking to gain revenge for his friend.
Both Paul and Woodley started to clash with each other when the former stepped into the ring with Askren. Since then, they have been at each others throats and then the fight was announced.
