Jake Paul to fight UFC legend Anderson Silva as YouTuber sets date for his toughest task

Date:


Jake Paul will face UFC legend Anderson Silva on October 29. According to YouTube insider Keemstar, Paul is set to for his toughest test to date against the former UFC middleweight world champion.

The news comes after, Paul teased a massive fight for October. Taking to Twitter yesterday he wrote: “Just got the call. Massive opponent announcement this week. October.”

While his promotional outfit, Most Valuable Promotions added: “Next week we will announce Jake Paul’s next opponent. [He] will almost certainly be the underdog. He knows that and he wants that.”

Despite the news not being made public yet, Keemstar is known as an extremely reliable source on the subject matter. The host of the popular talk show, Drama Alert, recently broke the news that Alex Wassabi had pulled out of his fight with KSI before the official announcement as well.

Paul had considered Silva as a replacement for Tommy Fury on August 6 after the Brit was denied entry to the United States but instead chose Hasim Rahman Jr due to his extensive boxing background. Of course, that fight was also cancelled due to weight-making issues with Rahman Jr unable to make the original 200lb limit and then the renewed weight of 205lb leading to the entire event being cancelled.

After a frustrating few months, the YouTube star will now partake in his sixth professional outing with a venue and undercard to be announced. It is unlikely that Paul’s training partner Amanda Serrano — who was the co-main event on the August card — will feature on October 29 as she is booked to face Sarah Mahfoud on the Joe Joyce vs Joseph Parker undercard next month.
