47-year-old former MMA champion Anderson Silva has been putting on show after show in his boxing career. Jake Paul couldn’t help but take notice of the recent win and even replied in a sly way.

Anderson Silva retired from MMA a long time ago and like most MMA fighters these days post-retirement, Silva took the boxing route. However, unlike most MMA fighters, Anderson has actually managed to put on tremendous performances back to back. Jake Paul, the YouTube boxer who relishes a boxing match against a former MMA champion is taken aback by Silva’s shouts.

“The Spider” recently fought on the undercard of Floyd Mayweather in an unofficial Abu Dhabi combat sports show held at the Etihad Arena. Silva took on Bruno Machado and put on a dazzling performance as the 47-year-old knocked down his opponent in the fifth round. The fight still went the distance and no winner was announced given it was an exhibition bout.

Silva has been calling out Jake for quite some time now. After dodging the callouts, Jake has finally responded to Silva in his own style on Twitter. Jake posted a photoshopped image of him in front of pest control suggesting he would put down the “Spider” in a potential bout.

Anderson has been calling out Jake since his debut in the boxing world. Jake has now faced former UFC welterweight champion, Tyron Woodley, twice and former Bellator MMA champion Ben Askren. Paul has eyed another middleweight champion, Michael Bisping. Despite Jake handpicking his fights, the YouTuber knows how to promote his events.

He has pulled massive numbers in his boxing career with Pay-per-views and also managed to fill the seats in huge arenas. “The Prblm Child” has hinted that he will return to the octagon in 2022. Silva accumulating wins in his boxing career surely could put him in the ring against the blockbuster YouTube boxer. UFC President Dana White during his beef with Paul challenged him to take on Anderson in a boxing match.

Fans online really are rooting for Anderson to hand Jake his first-ever loss in his professional boxing career. What do you think of this matchup?
