Woodley, 39, who has lost his last four fights in the UFC, called out Paul, 24, in April - but insisted that he wanted any fight to be under MMA regulations.
However, the pair will now go head-to-head later this summer in a boxing ring, with Paul confirming its date on social media on Tuesday afternoon, as confirmed by The Athletic last month.
Getting under the skin of just about everyone in both the boxing and MMA worlds, Paul has a record of 3-0 since becoming a professional fighter.
The Problem Child is also said to have recently signed a multi-fight deal with Showtime.
But how exactly do Paul and Woodley compare ahead of their proposed fight?
Jake Paul announced on his Instagram on Tuesday that he will be fighting Tyron Woodley on Saturday, 28 August.
In his post he wrote taunted the former MMA star and said: "Tyron's a seasoned striker who has fought the best MMA fighters in the world, but will be dropped by a Disney teen star in two rounds."
Following weeks of speculation, Paul and Woodley have reached an agreement for a fight that will take place on Showtime pay-per-view.
Sources close to the situation confirmed the news to MMA Fighting following an initial report from The Athletic's Mike Coppinger.
