Tyron “The Chosen One” Woodley is undeniably one of the greats of the UFC Welterweight Division. While his final years as a pro weren’t the greatest, prior to that he had put together an extremely impressive resume with five title fight victories between 2016 and 2019.
Following his departure from the UFC, Woodley is set to face off in his debut boxing bout with YouTube sensation Jake Paul. On August 29, the pair will enter the ring on Showtime PPV in an integral bout for the trajectory of both fighters boxing careers.
