Jake Paul thinks Tyron Woodley will be in for a short night when the two meet in a boxing match on August 28th.

On Monday news broke that Paul, a YouTube and Disney star turned professional boxer, would face former UFC welterweight champion Woodley in a fight that will air on Showtime pay-per-view.

Paul has quickly become the most talked-about name in combat sports, calling out household names such as Conor McGregor and Jorge Masvidal after knocking out Ben Askren in April.

“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,” Paul wrote. “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, 39, fought out his UFC contract when he was defeated by Vincente Luque at UFC 260 in March. The former champ, who says he will be making the biggest purse of his career for this fight, has opened as a betting underdog against Paul.
