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 back in 2020, Silva hasn’t been quiet and is not finished in combat sports at all.
The Spider squared off against Tito Ortiz on September 11 last year 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 on his YouTube Channel, UFC legend Michael Bisping talked about Jake Paul squaring off against Anderson Silva. Bisping made it clear that he doubts The Problem Child can beat Anderson Silva, despite Silva being almost twice his age.
“I’ve seen his [Jake Paul] fights. I’ve seen that he is a shower sh*te. I’ve seen that he picks on small guys and from a different sport. And I’ve also seen that he might be talking about going out after Anderson Silva. Again, that’s his MO. Anderson Silva is about 90 now, even though I think Anderson can still beat him.”
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.
