YouTuber turned professional boxer Jake Paul will reportedly face former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley in his next bout.
The matchup was first reported by MMA Island and additional information for the bout was provided by ESPN's Ariel Helwani. In his report, Helwani revealed that Paul vs. Woodley will take place on August 28, at a weight of 190 pounds, and the pair will wear 10-ounce gloves for the fight. Paul recently signed a multi-fight deal with Showtime Sports to promote his fighting career, with Woodley seemingly being the first fight of the partnership. The social media star is 3-0 as a professional boxer so far and is coming off of a first-round knockout over former Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren, who also happens to be Woodley's former college wrestling teammate at the University of Missouri.
The 39-year old Ferguson, Missouri native recently completed his contract with the UFC after his last Octagon appearance, a first-round submission defeat due to a brabo choke to Vicente Luque at UFC 260. The loss was his fourth in a row, Woodley will look to secure his first victory since September 2018 when he faces Paul.
