UFC superstar Jorge Masvidal has tipped his old team-mate Tyron Woodley to knock Jake Paul out cold.
Former welterweight king Woodley will throw down with the YouTuber turned boxer at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland a week on Monday.
Despite having over ten times as many fights as Paul, Woodley, 39, goes into his professional boxing debut as a huge underdog.
But The Chosen One’s former American Top Team team-mate Masvidal is tipping him to get the job done, saying during an appearance on The MMA Hour: “He has a ton of experience over him.
“So if Jake wins, f***ing wow. My hat’s off to him, I was wrong. I don’t know s**t about fighting, right?
“But, chances are Woodley is gonna knock him the f**k out.”
Masvidal made his prediction for Paul vs Woodley first known during an appearance on ATT’s Punchin’ in Podcast.
He said: “He’s gonna get killed by my boy Woodley.”

Paul, 24, is 3-0 as a professional boxer following wins over fellow YouTuber AnEson Gib, ex-NBA star Nate Robinson and former UFC welterweight Ben Askren.
But Woodley – who is good friends with Askren – is expecting an easy night at the office.
He told ESPN: “Easiest fight of my career & biggest purse of my career all in one night.
“Basically, they brought me in to take out the trash. Can’t wait to shut this b***h up.
“This is getting done for the culture, the whole MMA/boxing community, to rid this guy of combat sports.”
Former Disney star Paul is also predicting a short night at the office, telling Sky Sports: “Before this camp, I said three [rounds] and now I’m thinking max two.
“But to be honest, something in my heart tells me it’s going to be another one-round fight.
“As crazy as that sounds, I think it’s going to be a very very short night for Tyron,” Paul said.
“Let’s hope Tyron is very very prepared and is a lot better than I expected.
“Because then the fight will go into the later rounds where I am actually a better fighter.
“In sparring, the first couple rounds I’m usually getting warmed up and I come alive in the back half of a fight.
“I haven’t even got to warm up in a fight yet and I haven’t been hit in a fight yet.”
