While we’re all in a little bit of shock over the tattoo, it’s not really that surprising that 39 year old Woodley would be chasing after the biggest reported paycheck of his career – according to reports he made an estimated 2 million dollars for the boxing deubt. About four times the biggest UFC purse he’s ever received.
