Morning Report: Tyron Woodley announces that he’s getting the ‘I love Jake Paul’ tattoo this weekend

Tyron Woodley | Esther Lin/MMAFighting.comTyron Woodley is ready to follow through on his bet with Jake Paul. Last month, Woodley faced Paul in an eight-round boxing match, and in the leadup to the bout, Paul and Woodley made a bet where if Paul won, Woodley would get an “I love Jake Paul” tattoo and vice versa. Paul ended up winning a split decision over Woodley which should have concluded the bet; however, immediately after the decision was announced, Woodley campaigned for a rematch and while the two were going back and forth in the ring, Paul said that if Woodley got the “I love Jake Paul” tattoo, he would give him the rematch. But Woodley ended up dragging his feet on having the ink done, demanding Paul sign a fight contract first, so Paul moved on from the fight, instead targeting a bout with Tommy Fury next. That fight is running into its own issues though and now, perhaps as a last-ditch effort to secure a rematch, Woodley says he’s going to follow through on his original bet with Paul. “Tommy Fury should have never even been in position for the bag,” Woodley said on Instagram with Ariel Helwani. “I’m gonna just let the week go through and see what happens. I think the most sensible thing to do is run it back, I think I’m getting this tattoo Saturday, by the way. Yeah, I just feel like I should do it because it’s a solid thing to do. I’m going to do it on Saturday.” Paul issued some very specific guidelines for Woodley with regard to the tattoo, saying he cannot get it covered and that is must be visible with shorts and a shirt on. Woodley says he has not yet decided where he will get it, but he’s considering putting it on his knuckles. “I don’t know yet, I’m gonna think about it,” Woodley said. “Not neck, not face. I should have put it across my f*cking knuckles. To me it’s like this, if a dude wants to pay me to whip his ass, since he supposedly ‘paid me and promoted the fight’, then I love you. (Laughs). Because you’re that dumb.” Whether getting the tattoo will incentivize Paul to offer Woodley a rematch still remains to be seen. Their fight last month reportedly sold 500,000 pay-per-views which is a solid number but a far cry from the 1 million that Paul sold when he faced Ben Askren earlier this year. Ultimately, it could come down to how the negotiations with Tommy Fury go for Paul. Or perhaps UFC President Dana White will have a change of heart and give Paul what he really wants, a fight with BMF Champion Jorge Masvidal. TOP STORIES Ruthless.

FINAL THOUGHTS

Good for Tyron. A bet’s a bet. If you don’t want to have an awful tattoo, don’t make it in the first place. I doubt this moves the needle for Jake Paul but I respect Woodley following through.

Thanks for reading and see y’all tomorrow.

Miesha Tate tests positive for COVID-19, fight against Ketlen Vieira postponed

Photo by Jeff Bottari/Zuffa LLCMiesha Tate will have to wait until a later date for her showdown against Ketlen Vieira after the former bantamweight champion tested positive for COVID-19. Sources close to the situation confirmed the news to MMA Fighting on Wednesday following an initial report from Sherdog.com. Tate was originally scheduled to clash with Vieira in the main event at the UFC Fight Night card on Oct. 16 but now the matchup is expected to be postponed to a later date. There’s no exact timeline for the rescheduled matchup, although Tate and Vieira are still expected to meet later this year. It’s an unfortunate turn of events for Tate, who made her return to mixed martial arts back in July where she earned a third-round TKO victory over Marion Reneau. It was Tate’s first appearance in the UFC following her retirement in 2016. Following that win, Tate wasted no time booking her next fight against Vieira with that bout scheduled as a five-round main event. While all signs are pointing towards a quick recovery for Tate, she still won’t be able to compete on Oct. 16 after testing positive for COVID-19. The UFC has made no official announcement about the change to the card or a new main event that will now fill the slot vacated by Tate vs. Vieira being postponed.
