Jake Paul is officially set to fight former UFC champion Tyron Woodley, announcing the upcoming bout in an Instagram post.

Addressing his 15.7 million followers, the 24-year-old YouTuber-turned-boxer revealed he has ‘a list of people I plan on knocking out,’ and that he is now ‘excited to cross the first one off the list’.


Of course, he is referring Woodley, an individual Paul has described as a ‘5 time UFC Champion known for his knockout power’.

Paul wrote:


Tyron ran his mouth a little too much in the locker room when I knocked out his best friend Ben and earned himself a top spot on the Problem Child death list.

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 2 rounds. Maybe this time Dana White will actually be a man of his word and put his money on his former champion instead of trying to undermine my success like a jealous ex. Influencer vs MMA….let’s get it on. It’s Showtime.

Woodley has also taken to Instagram to announce the fight, writing to his fans:

Let the bodies hit the floor @jakepaul #AntiBitchOutClause @showtimeboxing @showtime LETS MAKE A MOVIE!!!!


Since beginning his career as a professional fighter, Paul is currently sitting at an impressive 3-0, and recently surprised many fans by KO-ing former UFC fighter Ben Askren.

Paul and Woodley are set to face off in the ring on August 28.
