Tyron Woodley gets "I Love Jake Paul" Tattoo, Wants Rematch
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.
