Jake Paul And Tyron Woodley Clash In Trash-Talking War Of Words During First Heated Face-Off
| Last updated
YouTuber Jake Paul and former UFC welterweight champ Tyron Woodley traded verbal blows during their intense first face-off.
Paul, 24, currently holds a 3-0 boxing record and has wins over AnEsonGib and Nate Robinson after he made his professional debut in 2020.
The American star's last outing inside the squared circle resulted in a stunning first-round stoppage win over ex-UFC fighter Ben Askren at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.
Both Paul and Woodley stepped inside the squared circle on Thursday at 5th Street Gym in Miami Beach, Florida, for their face-off.

Footage has since made the rounds on social media of Paul taunting his opponent's MMA record and also branded him a "b***h."
Meanwhile, Woodley pulled no punches towards the YouTuber-turned-boxer as he called for Showtime to add in a "no-b***h-out clause" to Paul's contract.
Paul has previously taunted the 39-year-old MMA fighter by claiming that he would be "getting knocked out by a Disney actor."
UFC president Dana White has already backed Woodley to beat the YouTube star in their fight, saying the MMA fighter has "punching power" on his side.
Woodley's manager, Malki Kawa, has claimed that Paul's camp demanded a rematch clause as it showed "how much this is a scary fight to them."
He told MMA Fighting: "Jake Paul's team negotiated an automatic rematch clause.
"That's how much this is a scary fight to them. If we win this fight, if Jake Paul wants it, then we have to run it back with him."
Jake's older brother, Logan Paul, was also in Miami today as he engaged in a long, heated face-off with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather ahead of his exhibition fight on 6th June.
