Jake Paul Vs Anderson Silva match explained

The biggest test of Jake Paul’s professional boxing career came on Saturday night when he faced off against former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva. Two days before their scheduled boxing battle, both of them accepted an unusual bet. At the prefight press conference on Thursday, Paul made the offer to Silva that if Silva prevails, the UFC legend and Paul would engage in a rematch in kickboxing.

Paul first suggested MMA, but Silva responded that he no longer competes in the sport. Silva, according to Paul, must assist him in establishing an association for UFC fighters if he wins. Silva agreed if it involved every MMA fighter, and the two got to their feet, met in the centre of the platform, and shook hands to settle the wager.

And following eight brutal, competitive rounds, “The Problem Child” defeated “The Spider” by unanimous decision (77-74, 78-73, 78-73). The most crucial exchange in the fight occurred in the final round when Paul knocked Silva to the ground, recording the match’s first and only knockdown.

Paul’s professional boxing record is at 6-0 after the victory. “The Problem Child” added Silva as the third former MMA champion to his tally, and all indicators point to Paul facing Nate Diaz next.

Luca Fury, an MMA bettor, tweeted: “At nearly 50 years old Anderson Silva looks beyond washed. Do you know when a fighter is so far regressed that they’re unrecognizable in the ring? Take that, then go another 10 years of deterioration. That’s how Silva looks tonight.”

“If you’re a pro boxer who’s going to exclusively book yourself vs. washed-up MMA veterans who are just chasing a paycheck, you better crush them,” he continued. “Squeaking out rounds is not a good look. Jake Paul has looked very unimpressive against the ghosts of Woodley and now Silva.”

The MMA Fighters Association (MMAFA), which has engaged in a legal case against the UFC and getting the Ali Act protections extended to MMA, is essentially a comparable organization that already exists in MMA.

A nice pay cheque, a deal/contract he couldn’t refuse if he lost. His age wasn’t even an issue, you could see he wasn’t putting in the effort to win.

So Spider didn’t throw many punches all fight and the only time he went for it he got knocked down. Bullshit in my opinion but they both got paid and that’s obviously all they wanted.
