Tyron Woodley makes good on wager, tattoos ‘I love Jake Paul’ on his finger

Might the gesture secure him a rematch against Paul?

Might Tyron Woodley get a rematch against YouTube star Jake Paul? A couple of weeks ago that appeared not to be the case after Woodley — who lost a decision to Paul — didn’t immediately follow through with his wager for the loser to get a tattoo saying they love the winner. It might seem petty, but for Jake Paul, Woodley seemingly indicating that he didn’t intend to go through with the bet was a deal breaker. That led Paul to refocus his attention on a fight against Tommy Fury.

Tommy Fury, however, hasn’t been appeased with the supposed $1 million dollars he’s been offered to fight Paul, saying it’s not even worth getting out of bed since the fight is worth so much more. And then out of nowhere Woodley posts on social media him actually following through with the tattoo wager, which seemingly puts him back in the running as Paul fancies himself a ‘man of his word.’

Woodley would shortly after post actual video of the tattoo being done to those who ridiculed, saying it was a phony.

With the Tommy Fury fight appearing to have troubles in the negotiations department, it looks like Woodley could actually land the rematch he’s looking for. Woodley wasn’t dominated by Paul when they first met, but surely wasn’t active enough inside the ring to take a points win.
