Anderson Silva is considered one of the greatest fighters in MMA history for good reason. He went up against many top names in the MMA world when he used to be active. After his release from UFC last year, Silva hasn’t been quiet and is not finished in combat sports at all.
The Spider recently squared off against Tito Ortiz on September 11 at Triller Club in his second boxing match. Similar to his first one, Anderson Silva displayed immense skill and technique.
So much so, that he knocked out Tito Ortiz within the first round in just 81 seconds. Silva also previously noted that he doesn’t rule out facing off against Jake Paul in a boxing match.
While speaking after the latest DWCS event, UFC President Dana White guaranteed that Anderson Silva will never square off against Jake Paul in a boxing match.
“I f***ing guarantee you this, you ain’t going to see Jake Paul calling Anderson Silva out. That I f***ing promise you. He’s his size and he’s actually good. He’s old, which is what Jake Paul likes, to fight old guys that are too small and that are absolutely positively washed up,”
While Dana White seems confident, it is ultimately up to Jake Paul whether he wants to face off against Anderson Silva or not. So it remains to be seen if that match ever happens or not.
