Jake Paul reveals what he told Anderson Silva during intense face-off ahead of fight with UFC legend

JAKE PAUL warned Anderson Silva that it is his time to shine ahead of the biggest fight of his life.

The YouTuber-turned boxer returns over the weekend in Arizona, in his first bout in ten months.

And he has enjoyed a pleasant build up with Silva – the man he once looked up to – but it has been a story of idol-turned rival for Paul.

He roared: “I said to him ‘it’s my generation, it’s my time’. To be a legend you’ve got to beat a legend.

“It’s time for war, I asked him if he’s ready. It’s been nice nice nice, it’s been swet sweet sweet.

“I respect that man but he’s trying to take the food off of my plate, he’s trying to stop my run.

“Tomorrow night, guess what? I’m f****ng him up, I’m f****ng him up!”

Paul, 25, hit the scales at 186.5lb, under the agreed upon catchweight with Silva, who came in at 186.1lb.

The Brazilian said: “I’m so happy to be here and tomorrow I’m going to do my best to make a good show for everyone.

“Of course I’m going to win, I’m training for that fight.”


Paul’s five prior wins all came around the 190lb mark and he wanted to return at 185lb but Silva negotiated a compromise of 187lb.

The American has come down in weight as he eyes a shock run at the light-heavyweight title of 175lb.

He last fought in December, knocking out Tyron Woodley, 40, four months after beating the ex-UFC champion on points.

That added to KOs over online rival AnEsonGib, ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, 38, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, also 38.
