Confirmed: Jake Paul to fight former UFC champion in fourth professional bout

Jake Paul will be taking on former UFC champion Tyron Woodley in his fourth professional fight.

Paul turned pro during a fight against fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib, knocking him down three times within the first round of the contest.

He went on to face former NBA star Nate Robinson, which was supposed to be a tougher contest, with Robinson being a former pro-athlete – a completely different proposition.

Yet, Paul knocked Robinson out in the second round – pretty brutally, too.

Next came Ben Askren, a fighter by trade, if only making a career in the UFC through his grappling skills. His biggest PPV event yet, and over within a round for the second time in three fights.

While we’d stop short of saying that Paul is the real deal – after all, he’s not faced any actual boxers to date – his record is getting more and more credible by the fight.

He’s now set to step into the ring with someone who will be, without doubt, his toughest opponent yet – former UFC Welterweight champion Tyron Woodley.

Though Woodley too is not a professional boxer, he’s an only recently retired fighter with four successful title defences in the UFC. This is a real test for Jake Paul – and one where we’ll learn plenty about his legitimacy.
