Jake Paul made it his life’s mission to play the role of a very annoying and punch-worthy character and taking part in big money matches that break records. This includes going after Tyron Woodley, which ultimately led to the match in the first place.
After a lot of teases and speculation, it was finally revealed that Jake Paul is set to square off against former UFC star Tyron Woodley in a boxing match for Showtime Boxing on August 28th.
Dana White is certainly not a fan of celebrity boxing matches as a whole and he recently claimed that Tyron Woodley was lying about his insane payday for his boxing match against Jake Paul. On top of that White claimed that Woodley was out of his prime.
While speaking to Fight Hype, Tyron Woodley addressed all of Dana White’s scathing remarks and revealed that he has no intention of bashing the UFC despite what White said.
“I don’t listen to it, my man. Bless him. Thank you, Dana. I got millions off the UFC and they made millions off me. It’s been a mutual situation. Everybody wants me to bash UFC. I don’t bash ’em. They gave me a chance to prove I was the best in the world. I did it five times. In my career, I fought seven world title fights and I won five. So, I had some bad days but I had way more good days. So I have no negative thing [to say]. Dana White is…protecting his brand. It looks as if this pay-per-view is going to contest a couple of PPVs of the UFC.”
Tyron Woodley is far more concerned with his upcoming boxing match against Jake Paul than what Dana White has to say about him and his calm and collected answer showed that.
