After four straight defeats inside the Octagon, Woodley was released from the UFC and will instead weave through the ropes and into a boxing ring to face Logan Paul’s infamous young brother, Jake.
As their fight inches ever closer, anticipation is rising and it will be even more special for the fighters who are both set for multi-million dollar paydays.
Woodley’s clash with Paul, which marks his professional debut in boxing, will reportedly see the 39-year-old take home a “career-high” purse.
Meanwhile, Paul - 3-0 as a professional fighter - will be wary that Woodley will be his toughest test to date yet.
The former Disney actor is the betting favourite going into this weekend’s fight, but Woodley will pose a genuine threat to Paul’s unblemished record.
However, one thing that’s for certain is that the 24-year-old stands to make another hefty payday, but how much exactly are we talking?
Although the exact number has not been disclosed yet, Paul is said to be guaranteed $1m before taking on the 39-year-old veteran.
Paul's total earnings, however, could be even higher once pay-per-view figures are released. Not a bad payday then, eh?

Much has been made, especially by rival Paul, of the pay that UFC fighters receive for their efforts inside the Octagon.
And Woodley is expected to make much more than the career-high $590,000 he made to fight Darren Till in 2018.
Although an official fight purse is yet to be announced, it has been reported that Woodley is estimated to make over $1m for his fight against Paul.
