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 hasn’t been quiet and is not finished in combat sports at all.
As reported earlier, a boxing match between Anderson Silva and fellow UFC legend Tito Ortiz was set to take place as they were scheduled to face off against each other in a boxing match at Triller on September 11.
Tito Ortiz previously stated that he lost respect for Anderson Silva due to an unreasonable demand. The two finally fought at Trill and it saw Anderson Silva knock out Tito Ortiz in the first round via a brutal knockout.
While speaking on a recent Instagram video, Tito Ortiz revealed that it hurt his heart to see trolls making memes out of his knockout loss to Anderson Silva.
“First time in my career I’ve ever been knocked out unconscious. And all these little memes of me, my face on the canvas, it hurts my heart. But it makes me wanna thrive, makes me wanna work hard and it makes me wanna..not prove people wrong, but prove my friends right, proving my fans, proving my family right that I’m the fighter and I can win!”
Tito Ortiz also recently called out Logan Paul for a boxing match, so we will have to wait and see if that will ever come to fruition or not.
