On Saturday, Jake Paul battled MMA icon and former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva at Glendale, Arizona’s Desert Diamond Arena in his long-awaited return to the ring. Silva was anticipated to be Paul’s toughest test to date going into the match.
In offering a style the social media influencer had never seen before, Silva gave Paul the difficulty he needed.

DAZN gave Paul the victory with a score of 77-74.
“The Problem Child” didn’t start off as strong as usual. But he maintained his composure. In the latter stages of the fight, he worked, feinted, punched off the jab, pounded the body, and displayed a left hook. To Silva’s credit, “The Spider” handled the blows well anytime Paul delivered a strong right hand.
Problems were presented to Paul by the 47-year-old. He kept following Paul, located the proper place for the uppercut, and scored several combos. Paul (6-0, 4 KOs) demonstrated his progression by remaining composed, returning to the jab, and unleashing combinations that busted open Silva’s face and left him gushing blood in the final two rounds.
In the eighth and final round, Paul was on the verge of ending the show. They were engaged in a struggle in the clinch after Silva raced in and initially appeared to be the aggressor when Paul unleashed a combination, backed up, and connected with a short right to knock Silva to the ground. The Brazilian managed to get back up, but Paul had the fight well under control and was still unbeaten.
