Anderson Silva is regarded as one of the all-time greats in the world of MMA who competed against several top names in the MMA world when he used to be active. Silva was released from the UFC last year in November after he lost to Uriah Hall in his final match. He is not finished in combat sports at all.
As reported earlier, a boxing match between Anderson Silva and fellow UFC legend Tito Ortiz is currently in the works. However, it seems that he has another opponent in mind as well.
While speaking to TMZ Sports, Anderson Silva was asked if he would ever want to square off against Jake Paul in a boxing match. Silva made it clear that he doesn’t rule out facing The Problem Child in the future.
“Everything is possible. Jake Paul and Logan are doing a lot of good work in this new entertaining show. We’ll see. Everything is possible. I respect both. [Jake] is doing good, working hard. So, we’ll see, maybe this is possible too.”
Before Silva can focus on Jake Paul, he has to contend with Tito Ortiz on September 11 at Triller Club. We will have to wait and see if Anderson Silva will topple Ortiz as well.
