Sean O’Malley says Jake Paul wouldn’t be smart to accept a fight with MMA legend Anderson Silva


Sean O’Malley has suggested that Jake Paul should not accept an upcoming fight with Anderson Silva.

In a video uploaded to his YouTube channel, O’Malley gave his thoughts on a potential boxing match between Jake Paul and Anderson Silva. ‘Suga’ said:

“See, watching Anderson after what he did to Tito, Tito Ortiz, it’s a risky fight. I don’t think it would necessarily be a smart fight for Jake just yet. But who knows? I do not know. It’s fun to play with.

Several notable combat sports analysts – including UFC Hall of Fame member Michael Bisping – have noted that Silva would be the perfect next opponent for “The Problem Child.” Neither Silva nor Jake’s respective next opponents and return dates have yet been revealed.

Silva’s most recent combat sports competition was a first round knockout victory in his pro boxing bout against Tito Ortiz earlier this year. Meanwhile, Jake Paul’s last fight was a sixth round knockout victory over Tyron Woodley.


Anderson Silva on potential fights against Jake Paul and Logan Paul

Earlier this year, Anderson Silva expressed his respect for the Paul brothers. “The Spider” alluded to the significant attention and new audience they are bringing to the combat sports industry.

Talk to TMZ Sports, Silva also suggested that he could potentially have boxing matches against Jake Paul and / or Logan Paul in the future. Asked about the possibility of fighting them, Silva said:

“Anything is possible. Jake Paul and Logan do a lot of a good job in this entertaining new show. We’ll see. Anything is possible. I respect both. [Jake] fine, work hard. So we’ll see, maybe that’s possible too. Silva added: “My goal is my last fight is 49 [years old]. 49, I’m done. Probably, I have finished. It’s my aim. Fight 3 more years and it’s done. 49. That’s the number. Maybe I can fight more, but right now my goal is that when I’m 49, I stop fighting.

Jake Paul, for his part, hasn’t expressed much interest in fighting Anderson Silva. Paul instead called out current UFC megastars Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz, daring them to fight him in the boxing ring.
