‘I couldn’t be happier for him’ – Daniel Cormier admits tattoo bet ‘worked’ on Tyron Woodley in securing Jake Paul rematch

“Don’t do it”—that’s Daniel Cormier’s advice to Tyron Woodley when it started to look like the former UFC welterweight champion would get “I love Jake Paul” tattooed on his body. The ink was the result of a handshake bet made with Paul prior to their August PPV match, that the loser would forever bear the winner’s name.

Woodley left with a decision to lose. And despite trying to increase the bet, and making a rematch as a condition of completing the tattoo, Woodley eventually succumbed and received new body art on the underside of his finger. middle hand on his left hand.

And although Paul dismissed the idea of ​​a rematch after closing the bet, it looks like things have worked out in the end for Woodley. He received a pay-off, after Tommy Fury pulled out of a PPV showdown with Paul on December 18. And with Woodley now filled out on short notice, Cormier is back to admitting that – in when he’s still not a fan of tattoos – he’s glad he was wrong about this.

“I’ve had a lot of things in my life, a lot of good, a lot of bad, but one thing that I’m not a hater,” Cormier said in a posted video. YouTube channels (passing scoreboard MMA Fighting). “Sometimes, when this whole Tyron Woodley and Jake Paul thing is going on, I can feel a little bit of hate because I don’t want T-Wood tattooed, I don’t like the way the rematch has been requested, but let’s go. guess? It actually worked. And I have to be honest, I can’t say I would be happier for anyone than I am for Tyron right now, because he feels that he won the last game and then, It was clear that he hadn’t made a decision, and it felt like the kids were playing with him.

“It felt like Jake Paul and his brother were going to play Tyron, telling him he had to get a tattoo, and Logan Paul said, ‘Hey man, you’ve got your chance.’ It looks like they’re trying to play T-Wood, but honestly, Tyron did what he had to do, which even if you disagree, obviously has some good deals for him. get tattoos because otherwise they would’ve been looking for someone else. I still have the same opinion about tattoos but that doesn’t really matter right now because T-Wood is going to rematch….

“Everything is ready for T-Wood. It’s out there for T-Wood to go and get it done right now and honestly, I couldn’t be happier for him. When a person has to go through what he has gone through, ridicule from all his friends, family, everyone, all of us, whom he has long considered his friends. All of them judge him harshly, saying he’s stupid for doing what he does. do. He stayed on the journey, he believed in himself, he believed in what could happen to him, and now he finds himself right at the cusp of another huge payday.”

After their first, Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley both walked away with $2,000,000 in base pay, before any PPV numbers were even released. That number more or less ensures that the highest paying matchup of Woodley’s MMA career.

The highest salary on record, before Woodley’s PPV previously came in his five-fight after winning the UFC welterweight title against Robbie Lawler. Woodley made $500,000 for each of those fights, with $100,000 in winnings for his win over Stephen Thompson at UFC 209 (Woodley’s other title fights with recorded pay data are not shows he earns the winning bonus).

There’s no word yet on what the contractual deal between Paul and Woodley 2 looks like, but a rep from Paul’s camp has confirmed that their match contains a 500,000 KO bonus for Woodley if he can. stop Paul in the distance.
