Tyron Woodley has “I love Jake Paul” tattooed on his finger as the former UFC fighter tries to secure an in-ring rematch with the YouTube star.
The pair fought in August, with Paul winning on points after the fight made it to the full eight rounds in Cleveland.
After the decision, Woodley called for a rematch and Paul agreed, but on the condition that the former UFC welterweight champion get the tattoo.

The 39-year-old has now revealed that he has complied by posting the image to his Instagram page and calling out Paul.
‘I love you son. Now come and get this ass, because I heard you’re talking to your parents.’
However, earlier this month, Paul seemed to reject the idea of a rematch, citing Woodley’s refusal to get the tattoo immediately after the fight.
“I’m leaving Tyron in the past. He didn’t live up to the bet; he didn’t get the tattoo. So the rematch just doesn’t make sense anymore,” said Paul.

“If he had the tattoo done right away, got 10 million views on his Instagram video, everyone would have been super hyped, there would have been a massive press around it.
“And I’d kind of be forced to do it. I couldn’t really deny him then, because if he wants to be a man of his word, then I have to be a man of my word.
“So he ruined it. He missed another big payday because of his ego.’
A more likely opponent for Paul seems to be Tommy Fury, the undefeated heavyweight who is regularly touted as a future opponent.
Fury fought on the undercard of Paul’s fight with Woodley, defeating Anthony Taylor by unanimous decision to extend his record to 7-0.
