Jake Paul will square off against an MMA fighter yet again on Saturday night as he rematches Tyron Woodley inside the squared circle.
After beating the former UFC welterweight champion via split decision in what was his professional boxing debut in August, Paul is hoping to improve his record to 5-0 courtesy of a knockout this time around.
He's made quite a name for himself in boxing, but there's a reason he's not facing MMA fighters at their own game.
Back in 2017, Paul mixed it up inside the cage at the UFC gym with Nate Diaz's teammate AJ Agazarm and the result was very different.
Agazarm, a black belt and world champion in brazilian jiu-jitsu, didn't really get out of first gear but showed his superior grappling and ground game.
There was a prank played by he and the referee where they led Paul to believe he had been disqualified due to an eye-poke but the fight was actually done and dusted in the second round for real after the YouTuber tapped to an armbar.
The full fight was posted on Paul's channel and garnered over 5 million views before it was then removed for reasons still unclear.
But the footage still exists after MMA Hot Takes posted it on their YouTube page.
This would appear to be Paul's first encounter with an MMA fighter.
Agazarm had an amateur MMA record of 8-0 and made his professional debut for Bellator in losing fashion in 2019.
He then won his next three fights before succumbing to a defeat at the hands of Chris Lencion at Bellator 243 and ended up being released by the company.
Paul, was a state wrestler, Division 1 in Ohio when he was younger and this week said he will make the switch to MMA and be trained by undefeated lightweight king Khabib Nurmagomedov.
"I don't see why if I can do boxing at this high of a level that I couldn't do MMA at this high of a level," he told reporters at a media scrum.
"I'm gonna go get coached up by Jav Mendez, Team Khabib, and that's that. They're down, 100 percent."
