Jake Paul went the distance and defeated former UFC Welterweight champion Tyron Woodley after an impressive eight-round performance, showing the world he truly is a professional fighter.

  • Amanda Serrano beat Yamileth Mercado to retain featherweight titles
  • Tommy Fury wants to take on Jake Paul next

Jake Paul went into the fight as the clear-cut favorite, and after eight rounds, he defeated Tyron Woodley via split decision.

It was his hardest challenge to date, and the first time he had to fight more than two rounds.

Woodley started off a little flat-footed but picked up the momentum as the fight went on — even landing a huge blow on Paul in the fourth round.

But in the end, Paul was more calculated and clinical and showed the world why he’s worthy of being considered — even by cynics — a professional fighter.

Jake Paul wasn’t necessarily happy with the result though, calling the split decision “bullsh*t”. Woodley, who thought he won the fight, will be even unhappier, and a potential rematch is certainly on the cards.

On the undercard, Amanda Serrano comfortably beat Yamileth Mercado via unanimous decision to retain the unified featherweight titles and continue her legacy, but the challenger also earned many new fans for having the courage to step into the ring against a legend.

Tommy Fury didn’t set the world on fire with his performance against Anthony Taylor.

However, he got the job done via unanimous decision and believes he did enough to warrant becoming Jake Paul’s next opponent.
