JAKE PAUL gifted Tyron Woodley a ROLEX just days before their rematch – but was trolling the ex-UFC champion at the same time.
The pair will share the ring for the second time this weekend in Florida, following Paul's split-decision win in August.
Ahead of their rematch, they sat down for a 40-minute face-off but Woodley was stunned when mid-way through he was handed a gift-wrapped present.
Paul gave his opponent a Rolex watch, but admitted it was really a metaphor to count down the time until he wins by knockout.
He said: "As a gift of respect because it's time for me to knock him out."
Woodley responded: "I accept your gift. And all the bonuses, I accept it all. And I'm going to do the same thing on Saturday.
"This dude is crazy. Do I know about this watch? Yeah I know about this watch.
"Why wouldn't I accept it? He put a bow on it and wrapped it, I'm not going to be disrespectful.
"I haven't had an opponent do a lot of s*** that this dude do. Mentally, it's warfare because you never know what to expect out of him."

In Paul's first three fights, he beat YouTuber 'AnEsonGib', ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, also 37.
But he then followed it up with an eight-round points win over Woodley, 39, in August.
Paul, 24, was set to fight Tommy Fury, 22, afterwards, until the British former reality TV star pulled out with a broken rib and chest infection.
Woodley then signed as a late replacement, setting up the anticipated rematch in Tampa.
To celebrate his fourth fight in 13 months, Paul gifted not only Woodley, but his whole team Rolex watches.
His trainer BJ Flores showed off the piece on Instagram.
