Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley PPV buys could finish ‘fifth-highest in history’

Former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley deposited $ 2 million for his split decision loss to social media star Jake Paul, which took place this past Sunday night (August 29) inside the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, Ohio.

But that number is expected to rise even further after “The Chosen One” collects its pay-per-view (PPV) points. As of this writing, the event is fast approaching the mark set by Logan Paul against Floyd Mayweather earlier this year.

And it could end as the fifth biggest pay-per-view ever.

“Pay-per-view is doing shit right now, I promise you,” Woodley said on Instagram Live (transcribed by MMA Fighting). “I told you. You motherfuckers were laughing at me. Go back to my Instagram, I said this will be the biggest pay-per-view of the year. I said that. (Expletive) laughed at me. They put clown emojis, “Haha what’s up with this? It’s going to be bigger than that, bwahaha!” The damn joke is yours. I don’t know where it is right now, but they’re still counting. That shit is still going up. So I want to thank everyone. the world for buying it, I want to thank everyone for giving a damn, I want to thank the promotion for putting together the fight. I’m excited because the second half is going to be crazier. “

Woodley has been calling for a rematch after losing to Paul in “Forest City” and would need to get a “Problem Kid” tattoo to move on. That said, it appears Paul is done shaking hands with former UFC headliners after calling out Tim Tebow.

“I kept saying, this is a real fight. It’s not the Tik Tok versus the fucking coin shooter, ”Woodley continued. “These are two real motherfuckers who both hit hard, they both have chins, a lot of bullshit, so guess what, we’re going to go back and when we do, we’ll go for the record next time. Right now we’re just below Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul on pay-per-view and we’re still counting. If we exceed that number, it will be the fifth highest pay-per-view in pay-per-view history. And we sold the sand, to all those people who said ‘You’re not so crude! You don’t know how to move the needle! ‘”

Expect an official announcement regarding the Paul-Woodley PPV purchases sometime next week.
