Tyron Woodley will reportedly fight against Dan Hardy in the UK under boxing rules.
Both sides are about to make it official, and they are looking at a timeframe of spring 2022, MMA journalist Ariel Helwani reported.
Woodley already made his boxing debut against YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul, suffering a decision loss. Woodley was forced to get the tattoo “I love Jake Paul” to earn the rematch, but it did not work out.
If this fight is held, it will be the first-ever competition for Hardy since 2012.
Hardy fought for the UFC welterweight title against George St. Pierre at UFC 111, but suffered a unanimous decision loss.
There also is some bad blood between these athletes, even though their UFC eras did not intercept.
As soon as Woodley posted the photo of his tattoo “I Love Jake Paul,” Hardy started commenting and criticizing the former champion. Soon after, they continued the arguing in the Instagram chat, and Hardy posted their screenshots.
The fight has yet to be made official.
