UFC icon Tyron Woodley will 'THROW' his boxing match with Jake Paul for money, according to former rival Colby Covington.
The extraordinary claim comes after the announcement of the fight between Woodley and Paul on August 28.

Speaking to MMA Junkie, Covington, 33, said: "Make no mistakes – Tyron has a great legacy.
"He was a world champion a couple of times, but he’s past his time. He’s almost 40 years old now.
"He’s 38, 39, and Jake’s taking the right steps and taking the right fights with the right fighters that are kind of at the end of their careers and don’t really have enough gas left in the tank, so it’s sad.
"But they’re doing this on purpose, and I really think Tyron is going out there to take a dive. I think he’s broke.
"He needs the money… It’s going to be a circus, and we know boxing is the most corrupt sport in the world as it is.
"So this little side circus they’re doing with Jake Paul, of course, they’re going to favour his way to make it a work"

Woodley is yet to respond to the allegations.
Covington knows all about fighting Woodley after beating the wannabe boxer at a UFC fight night in September 2020.
Woodley's last MMA fight was against Vicente Luque at UFC 260 in March, losing by submission.
The 39-year-old has never boxed professionally, with Paul, 24, boasting a 3-0 record from his blossoming career.
