Anderson Silva and Jake Paul will go to war on 29 October. We believe that the youth will prevail here, despite the large age gap and Silva’s latest form.

Silva’s long and successful career as an MMA fighter ended in 2012. Sweet Science has helped Silva to resurrect his brand. Silva defeated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in 2021. He also won a first round KO against Tito Ortiz (a former champion in MMA’s middleweight division). Both of Silva’s fights were impressive.
Silva, as skilled and experienced as he may be, will be facing someone 22 years younger than him, who is serious about the fight business. We’re not far from Bernard Hopkins who used to tear up fighters in his late 40s. Hopkins brought these guys to fight him. That’s the big difference. Paul is making Silva come to him
Paul holds a huge advantage in this fight. He has a classic style, with a precise jab and stands behind it. Silva hasn’t fought any real boxers, so there are still doubts. He is probably more skilled than many 6-0 fighters. However, even a win raises questions about Paul’s ability to fight professionally as a boxer.
Paul is the favourite now that his Moneyline has risen. We are still reeling from Silva’s poor performance in the Octagon. Although they were impressive, Chavez Jr. was not as concerned with looking good as he was with getting a check.
Paul is a solid fighter who sticks to his principles and has tremendous power. He beat Tyrone Woodley twice in their fights, and he knocked him out cold in their rematch four year later. This is an amazing turnaround against a fighter that will be younger than Silva when they meet.
We think that Silva will be a challenge to Paul, but it will be another Jake Paul win. Silva was better prepared than his other two opponents, but Paul is very well-conditioned. We are supporting “The Problem Child” to win another victory.
Paul is my favorite to win points that pay +160. This means that if you place 100 bets, you will win 160
