Jake Paul looked for a new opponent everywhere. Even Rick Ross offered up a $10 million price to whoever wanted to come up and become Jake Paul’s next opponent. The wait is over, as Anderson Silva is going to take on Jake Paul in a scheduled fight.

Silva and Paul will face each other on October 29th in Phoenix, Arizona. Considering that Paul has been teasing the match against The Spider for a long time, this is a match meant to happen.

The celebrity boxer recently took to social media and trolled UFC president Dana White. Dana is one of Paul’s biggest critics, and the two often take shots at each other. Paul trolled White for promoting his own fight and said that White’s mention of his fight has saved him a lot of money he would have otherwise spent promoting it.

The Spider and The Problem Child will definitely make for a thrilling match. While Silva left the UFC in 2020, he hasn’t left combat sports at all.

Silva kickstarted his boxing career again in 2021 and took on Tito Ortiz. He knocked him out only 40 seconds into the match. Paul would be wise to show some caution before taking on The Spider.

Only time will tell if Jake Paul has what it takes to beat Silva, but Dana White has talked about it enough to put together a killer hype video.
