Tyron Woodley is taking Jake Paul seriously and followed him to his hometown of Cleveland to prove it.

Tyron Woodley fires back at Jake Paul's criticisms of his UFC resume:
"When have you fought anybody of that caliber? Nate Robinson plays basketball. I knock people out for a living."#PaulWoodley

“This is where it all started for me,” said Paul, who grew up 15 miles from Cleveland in Westlake, Ohio. “This is where I grew up. This is a dream come true. This is surreal.
“I want to show kids in Cleveland their first boxing match. I want to inspire the next maybe Jake Paul that’s sitting in the stands cheering for me and show them that one day that they can be on this stage.”
Woodley said he is not playing games as he prepares for Paul.
“You want to go back and play Fortnite and Atari and Tic-Tac-Toe, as well?” Woodley said. “Or you wanna fight? You want to make bets like a little kid?
“I’m not going to get a tattoo, because I’m knocking him out. If he wants to walk around with my name on him, have at it. I think he wanted to do that anyway.”
