In August, mixed-martial artist Tyron Woodley suffered a split decision lost to Jake Paul in his first-ever boxing match.
The former five-time UFC champion immediately demanded a rematch from Paul, but he had to get an agreed upon tatto for that to happen.
“I’m over it,” Paul told ESPN in August. “I’m leaving Tyron in the past. He didn’t live up to the bet—he didn’t get the tattoo. So, the rematch just doesn’t make sense anymore.”
Paul told ESPN two weeks ago that Woodley had eliminated himself from the running to be his next opponent because he did not get the tattoo.
“If he would have gotten the tattoo right away, got 10 million views on his Instagram video, [then] everyone would have been super hyped, there would have been a ton of press around it,” Paul said. “And I would have been sort of forced to do it. I couldn’t really deny him then, because if he’s going to be a man of his word, then I have to be a man of my word. So, he fucked up. He missed out on another big payday because of his ego.”
Woodley has finally set his ego to the side and recently posted the tattoo.
We just now might get Paul vs. Woodley 2.
