After Jake Paul’s split decision victory on Sunday, Tyron Woodley didn’t feel the score was settled.
The former UFC welterweight champion immediately asked for a rematch, but Paul said that could only happen if he got a “I love Jake Paul” tattoo.
Woodley agreed without hesitation, but Paul has now laid down the ground rules for said tattoo.
The “Problem Child” tweeted, “Tyron’s tattoo guidelines:
1.3 × 2 inches at least
2. I can’t cover it
4. Must post on social media
5. Must be visible with shorts and a shirt.
Paul brought his own tattoo artist to the show on Sunday, but Woodley didn’t get a tattoo that night.
He accepted the tattoo, but now time will tell if he will.
Woodley, 39, had the best moments in the fight on Sunday as he should have scored a knockdown in the fourth and he also caught Paul with a nice left hook later in the fight.
Paul won because of his lineup and jab, but he didn’t excite like he had before with Ben Askren and Nate Robinson showing some real knockouts.
Paul’s options appear to be to settle a vendetta with Tommy Fury that escalated further on Sunday, or to fight Woodley again in a fight that might not have the same appeal as before.
The 24-year-old has said he wants to take a break before deciding anything. After 18 months of focusing on boxing, he wants to take a break and see what he wants to do next.
Woodley doesn’t have a lot of options outside of a rematch. His UFC career ended after losing his last four fights without winning a set and his first foray into boxing resulted in a loss.
He could potentially pivot to another MMA promotion like Bellator or ONE, but Woodley seems laser-focused to secure a win over Paul.
And rightly so, given that it was a career-high salary he won at home.
