Dana White always has a lot to say when it comes to talking about Jake & Logan Paul. The former UFC fighter Tyron Woodley, who recently became a free agent after his contract ran out earlier this year, is about to face Jake Paul in a bout in August.
The UFC Chairman and founder conveyed his thoughts on the current version of Tyron Woodley on the “Real Quick With Mike Swick” podcast. White stated that while Woodley hasn’t been in his top game since a while now, he still packs a pretty powerful punch.
Tyron Woodley has punching power. Obviously, he’s put a lot of dudes to sleep in his career. Tyron Woodley doesn’t look like the Tyron Woodley of the past that was putting everybody to sleep. He hasn’t won a fight in three years. He’s going to be 40 years old. But, I will give it to (Jake Paul). He’s at least stepping in there with a guy who can punch.
Even though White knows that Woodley has regression as a disadvantage, he still feels that Woodley will knock Paul out. However, he’s not too sure on his prediction. White continued:
You tell me when is the last time you saw Woodley look like Woodley, (but) I’d have to go with Woodley by knockout. Listen, man. Woodley should knock him out. But, again, the Tyron Woodley that you talk about, that was the champ, isn’t the same f*cking guy he was four years ago.
Woodley was at one point the reigning Welterweight Champion in the UFC, and he’s come far from his former glory days. White still believes that Woodley should shine in his former glory again.[Via]
