Tyron Woodley Jake Paul

Mixed martial arts fans around the world were disappointed on August 29th, when former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley was defeated by internet personality Jake Paul in a boxing match via split decision. Following the decision, a bet from before the match resurfaced in which the loser was supposed to get a tattoo stating that they loved whoever had just beaten them. Woodley immediately wanted a rematch, and Paul said that if Woodley actually got the tattoo, then a rematch was possible. Keep reading to see a recent Instagram post from Woodley, in which he kept his end of the deal.

Woodley's Instagram post:

Clearly, Woodley was trying to get under Paul's skin by calling him "son" and strategically getting the tattoo inked on his middle finger. Paul has since responded in a rather strange YouTube video in which he essentially just holds up a small paper sign that says "I love you too".

Paul has been trying to book a fight with WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury's half-brother Tommy Fury, who has reportedly declined two offers to make the match happen. According to sources at ESPN, the second offer would have been a million-dollar payday for Fury.

The difficulties booking the Fury fight and the new ink from Tyron Woodley might make Paul vs. Woodley 2 a reality. Woodley's manager, Malki Kawa of First Round Management, has said that the tattoo should put his client in position for a rematch, showing that the Woodley camp is serious about getting redemption.

The 2021 Diamond Nationals took place on October 8th and 9th, the first time the prestigious event has been hosted since 2019. World class competitors gathered in Minneapolis, Minnesota to test their skills in forms, weapons, point sparring, and more.

In the early 2010's, Ken Warner (otherwise known as ZenInc on YouTube) always shared his "Top Five" on Facebook after major sport karate events. Reflecting on these posts has inspired me to write a top five article of my own for the Diamond Nationals, and I plan to continue writing these articles after each tournament I attend. Special thanks to Ken Warner for his contributions to documenting sport karate history. Without further ado, here is Jackson's Five for the Diamond Nationals.

No charges will be brought against Liddell or his wife, Heidi Northcott, relating to the dispute which caused police to be summoned to their home and ended in Liddell's arrest.
