Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley Odds: Paul Favored Over Former UFC Champion
Jake Paul’s Next Fight: Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley Odds, Betting & Fight History
It seems as if the new sports cycle is just rotating between Paul brother fights until one of them gets viciously knocked out or becomes world champion. While the latter seems far less likely than the former, you never know.
So, it’s fitting that with Logan Paul’s fight against Floyd Mayweather set for tonight, we already have Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley to look forward to.
Jake Paul most recently knocked out an out of shape, ill-prepared Ben Askren in the first round of their boxing match. I’d even go as far as to say it look like Askren took a dive for a quick pay day. But that’s irrelevant now as Paul is moving on to fighting Tyron Woodley, the former UFC champion.
There are still a lot of things we don’t know about Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley. But, we do know that the fight is scheduled for August 28. It will take place at 190 pounds, fighters will wear 10-ounce gloves and the ring will be 20x20.
What we don’t know is where it will be or how you can watch, although we have heard Showtime will be putting on the fight like they are with Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul.
As far as Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley odds are concerned, we’re still waiting for US sportsbooks to price it up. But, as is often the case, the UK sportsbooks have delivered Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley odds.
Like his fight with Ben Askren, Jake Paul is the slight favorite when it comes to Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley odds. Paul is currently -138 while Woodley sits at even money (+100).
At -138, Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley odds give Paul a 58% chance of winning. +100 means oddsmakers have Woodley at a 50% chance of winning.
Who is Tyron Woodley?
For fans who aren’t familiar with the UFC, there was a time when Tyron Woodley was considered unbeatable and among the best pound-for-pound MMA fighters in the entire world. Woodley held the UFC welterweight title from 2016-2019, defending the belt four times before eventually being defeated by current title holder Kamaru Usman.
But, let’s not pretend like Woodley is some world-renown striker.
Tyron Wodley’s bread and butter is and always has been grappling. In 16 UFC fights, Woodly has finished five fights with his striking ability and one came via a leg kick.
Woodley was a two-time All-American wrestler at the University of Missouri. His striking is certainly a step up from the likes of Ben Askren, but Tyron Woodley is not an elite puncher.
Also, at 39 years old, Woodley is at the end of his career and declining fast. He’s lost four straight UFC fights and hasn’t won since September of 2018.
Tyron Woodley’s Record
Tyron Woodley is 19-7-1 in his 27-fight MMA career. He has never fought in a professional boxing match so Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley will be his first.

Jake Paul Fight History
It’s a little bit of a different story when we look at Jake Paul’s fight history and how they impact Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley Odds.
Paul has fought professionally exactly three time. He seems to be taking the fight game seriously, but he didn’t start boxing until a few years ago and is miles behind other fighters his age. That is the main reason he’s spent the early part of his career fighting people with no boxing experience.
Jake Paul is yet to fight a person who he isn’t serving as their first ever opponent in a boxing ring. Ben Askren actually may have been an easier fight than his bout against Nate Robinson, where he delivered a thunderous KO.
His lack of experience is the exact reason why we don’t see him fighting guys like Tommy Furry or other accomplished strikers. If he was to get in the ring with someone with experience, he would be made short work of. So, we see him fighting guys with no boxing experience and coming in as the favorite, as has been reflected in Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley Odds.
Jake Paul’s Record
Jake Paul is 3-0-0 in his three-fight career. He's finished all three fights early, with only his fight against Nate Robinson making it out of the first round.
