| Last updated
Jake Paul says he's 'exposing' Dana White and Co with his boxing bout against former UFC champion Tyron Woodley.
The YouTube star resumes his budding boxing career when he faces Woodley on August 29.
It will be his second professional boxing contest against an MMA fighter who has fought under the UFC banner.

Paul stopped ex-UFC contender Ben Askren in his last fight as he takes on Woodley in a bout many consider a step up in competition.
But 'The Problem Child' is extremely confident in squaring off against 'The Chosen One' - and explained how he is 'exposing' the UFC and the 'striking capabilities' of their fighters.
He said: "I think I'm exposing the UFC a bit with their striking capabilities.
"He's fought the 'best in the world' in the UFC, but that's not boxing. People think they're very similar sports, which they kind of are."
The 3-0 boxer added: "But it's really relating swimming to basketball. It's two very different things.
"Boxers are more efficient, more precise, more conservative with their energy, scoring points.
"It's just a completely different ballgame, and a lot of people don't really understand that.
"They just take it at face value, which is, 'This is a fight'. It's not that.
"He's coming into my territory, and as crazy as it sounds, I'm a much better boxer than him - even though he's been doing it for five times as long."
