MMA fighter Tyron Woodley lost his fight against Jake Paul earlier this year, and now he’s gotten that tattoo he promised to get in the event of a loss.
Woodley agreed to get a tattoo that read “I love Jake Paul” if he lost his boxing debut, which he did in a split decision last month. Paul said that he would agree to a rematch if Woodley went through with the bet, and Woodley has now showcased his new ink on social media.
“I love you son,” he said alongside a picture of the tattoo on his middle finger. “Now come and get this ass whippin cause I heard you been talking back to your elders. @jakepaul #ManOfMyWord WHERE YOU AT!?” He credited Rubia Santana as the tattoo artist.
Woodley previously made it clear that he wasn’t up to get that tattoo until he had paperwork for a second fight with Paul, although it remains to be seen if Jake Paul has any plans for a rematch with Woodley. The YouTuber-turned-boxer has yet to respond to the post.
Earlier this month, Paul told ESPN that he was “over” the bet. “I’m leaving Tyron in the past. He didn’t live up to the bet,” he said. “He didn’t get the tattoo. So, the rematch just doesn’t make sense anymore. … If he would have gotten the tattoo right away, got 10 million views on his Instagram video, [then] everyone would have been super hyped, there would have been a ton of press around it.”
He also added that he would be “sort of forced” to do the rematch if he got the tattoo there and then. “So, he fucked up,” Paul said. “He missed out on another big payday because of his ego.”
Paul recently hinted heavily at a potential fight with British boxer and former Love Island star Tommy Fury. “People keep saying, ‘Fight a real boxer, fight a real boxer,’” he continued. “So that fight is definitely interesting to me. I don’t know if his name is big enough. We’re still looking at the pay-per-view numbers that came in from the UK.”
As the Independent reported last week, though, Fury has already turned down two offers to fight Paul. “$1 million for a fight of this magnitude is not even worth getting out of bed for, this fight is going to gross millions and millions of pounds,” Fury said on social media. “I cannot walk down the street without anybody asking me when are you fighting Jake Paul? So until you want to make a serious offer and put it on the table, we can’t think about fighting pal.”
