Tyron Woodley to earn record seven-figure purse for Jake Paul fight
In a boxing bout against Jake Paul, the former welterweight champion will earn more than he did in any of his six UFC title fights.
In an interview with MMA Fighting, Tyron Woodley’s agent, Malki Kawa, revealed the prize money T-Wood will receive. When his agent was questioned about the contract’s specifics, Kawa was ecstatic.
“Yeah, he’s getting paid really well. It’s one of the best deals I’ve ever done. It’s a tremendous deal. He’s getting a large base number, he’s getting a cut of the pay-per-view globally. He should walk away with a multi-million dollar payday. His base guarantee is in the millions already, but add on all the other extra stuff, it’s a really nice payday.”

Tyron Woodley has a wonderful chance to reclaim his popularity among MMA fans. Jake Paul has failed to impress combat sports fans, who are waiting for a combatant to put the YouTuber in his place. ‘The Chosen One’ stands to receive accolades and the biggest payday of his fighting career if Woodley defeats and disrupt Paul’s progress.
Kawa says Tyron Woodley’s base salary is more than he got in the UFC. When he was the champion, his last disclosed purse was $500k to show.
