“If he had gotten the tattoo right away, he would have gotten 10 million views on his Instagram video, [entonces] everyone would have been very excited, there would have been a lot of press around him, “said Paul.” And I would have been forced to do it. I couldn’t really deny it then, because if he’s going to be a man of my word, then I have to be a man of my word. So, he screwed up. He missed another big payday because of his ego. “

So if it’s not Woodley again, who’s next for the now 4-0 Paul? There are several “options,” Paul said.
