What is Tyron Woodley’s net worth?

  • Tyron is worth approximately $4 million.

The MMA fighter’s impressive stint with UFC has added immensely to his finances. Moreover, as per Evening Standard, Tyron is set to make a minimum of $500,000 from his fight against Jake.

However, his manager, Malki Kawa said that Tyron would “walk away with a multi-million dollar payday” after fighting the YouTuber.

The 39-year-old started his MMA career in February 2009, against Steve Schnider and won the match via submission in the first round.

The same thing happened in Tyron’s second professional bout against Jeff Carstens in April that year. The UFC fighter then debuted for Strikeforce the same year.

He lost his fight in 2012 against Nate Marquardt. However, Tyron made an impressive comeback in his UFC debut in February 2013 with a knock out victory against Jay Hieron. By 2015 Tyron’s professional record was 15-3.

Prior to this, in May 2014 the Missouri native was ranked #3 in the official UFC welterweight rankings. He went on to become the champion in the category and defended his title five times, in three years. He finally lost the title to Kamaru Usman in 2019.
