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.
Silva also previously didn’t rule out squaring off against Jake Paul in the future. While speaking on his YouTube channel, Sean O’Malley stated that it wouldn’t be a smart move on Jake Paul’s part if he fights Anderson Silva.
“See, watching Anderson after what he did to Tito, Tito Ortiz, that’s a risky fight. I don’t think that would be necessarily a smart fight for Jake to take yet. But who knows? I don’t know. It’s fun to play around with.”
Dana White also guaranteed Anderson Silva will never fight Jake Paul. 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.
