Jake Paul has been actively eyeing his next opponent to get in the boxing ring with. While there have been too much noise about who Jake would fight next, we have UFC Boss Dana White proposing Jake Paul Vs Anderson Silva.
Jake and Dana are not on good terms with the former accusing Dana White of exploiting his MMA fighters and not giving them enough pay.
âGo Fight Somebody Your Own Sizeâ
Jake Paul proposed a multi-million dollar fight and wondered if âDaddy Danaâ would give permission to his fighter to fight Jake.
However, Dana White clearly denied that Jorge Masvidal would fight Jake Paul.
White said âHe likes 170-pounders. Go fight somebody your own size. Anderson Silvaâs not under contract, heâs 46 years old – thatâs the age group you love to fight – and heâs your size and heâs actually winning fights.â
In talks with The Daily Telegraph (HT: MMA Fighting), Dana white also added:
âIf you look at Jake Paulâs history, Jake Paul either fights basketball players who have never fought or he wants to fight washed up older guys who havenât won fights in years. Anderson Silva has actually been boxing, heâs won some fights, heâs 46 years old, and heâs in your weight class. There you go. Thatâs a no-brainer. Fight Anderson Silva,â he said. âFans would actually probably like to see that fight. Itâs actually a viable fight that would actually sell some pay-per-views.â
Jake Paul ignored the Anderson Silva part and tweeted challenging another MMA fighter Derek Brunson.
âDana admitted this morning that I would destroy â170â pound Masvidal.. So Dana will you give Brunson permission to make some real money? Dana?â

While Brunson is obviously interested in a big payday, this is yet another match up that isnât likely to ever happen due to his UFC contract.
Who Jake Paul fights next still remains a mystery and we hope to soon see an official fight announcement.
