At the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona, Jake Paul returned in his role of boxer, and took a unanimous decision win over eight rounds against UFC legend Anderson Silva.

Paul (6-0, KO4) turned professional in January 2020, and had built an unbeaten record on a diet of fellow YouTube personalities and former sports stars, with his last win a sixth round rematch knockout of former UFC champion Tyron Woodley last December. He faced another former martial artist here, with 47-year-old Brazilian Silva (3-2, KO2) coming off wins over the badly faded Julio Cesar Chavez Jr and Tito Ortiz, who Silva blasted out inside a round in September 2021.

Paul stayed pretty composed in this one, using plenty of feints and also his jab to keep Silva guessing. Silva was competitive though, and landed with decent combinations, and also found a home for several uppercuts during the contest. Paul was handily ahead going into the eighth and final round of this catchweight affair, and he made sure of his win by landing a short right hand that dropped Silva. The South American made it back to his feet, and survived the round, making it to the final bell.


Paul took the win by scores of 78-73 (twice) and 77-74 to stay unbeaten.

He then promptly took to the mic to call out UFC’s Nate Diaz and even Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez.


On the undercard, Ashton Sylve (8-0, KO8) remained perfect as a pro, as he knocked out Braulio Rodriguez (20-5, KO17) in just over a minute of their lightweight contest set for eight rounds. A left hook followed by an uppercut did the damage.


Shadasia Green (11-0, KO10) is fast building a reputation, and the American scored another early win, this time stopping Ogleidis Suarez (30-5-1, KO14) in the fifth round of a scheduled eight at super middleweight.

Alexandro Santiago (27-3-5, KO13) defeated Antonio Nieves (20-4-2, KO11) in their bantamweight ten-rounder, as Nieves was forced to retire between rounds seven and eight. Santiago was well on top at the time of the stoppage.

Jeremiah Milton (7-0, KO6) halted Quintin Sumpter (5-1, KO4) in the fifth round of their heavyweight encounter set for eight, and Danny Barrios Flores (11-0, KO2) took a six round decision win against Edgar Ortiz Jr (8-4-2, KO4) at super bantamweight.


Uriah Hall (1-0, KO1), a former UFC fighter, took a four round decision against Le’Veon Bell (0-1), a former NFL player, at cruiserweight.

Chris Avila (2-1, KO0) took all four rounds against Mikhail Varshavski (0-1), also at cruiserweight.
