Woodley (19-7-1 MMA) and Paul (3-0) have each taken turns trading barbs with one another on Twitter since the announcement of the fight.

Woodley cornered his longtime friend and teammate Ben Askren in Askren’s boxing match with Paul that took place in April, which Askren lost by first round KO.

During the Paul-Askren pay-per-view, a video leaked of Woodley having words with Paul and his team backstage, that video can be found here.

From there on, tensions rose further between ‘The Chosen One’ and ‘The Problem Child’, with several callouts from Woodley on Twitter dating back to just one day after Paul-Askren took place.

While a location for the pay-per-view is still yet to be determined as of this writing, a promotional event for the fight is set to take place in Miami on Friday.
