YouTuber Jake Paul completed his long-awaited fight with former UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley tonight. In a split decision, a winner was crowned, but a rematch could be on the way.
Jake Paul went into the match undefeated; the YouTube star has bested all of his previous opponents, including social media influencer AnEsonGib, former NBA player Nate Robinson, and former UFC fighter Ben Askren. Tyron Woodley, though retired, is the most dangerous fight that Paul has thus far taken on. The match was streamed live on Showtime PPV. The UFC crowd was not welcoming to Paul, but that didn't stop him from winning the match.
Tonight, the controversial social media star Jake Paul was declared the winner of the battle against Tyron Woodley via split decision. While Paul took several hard hits, he seemed to be on top of the fight, doling out far more than he took. This brings the YouTuber's short but shining career to 4-0, still undefeated. "He's a tough opponent," said Paul about the fight. "He's been boxing/striking for 20 years. It was a tougher fight than I expected. He's a good boxer, he came in shape. No hard feelings, but this feels amazing. I want to cry, but I'm too tired." The win has gotten a lot of response from others who now want a piece of Paul in the ring as well.
