Discussing about the potential fight, Anderson Silva said:

Jake’s training a lot. People need to respect everything he’s doing, because it’s very professional and focused,"

"It’s very hard to say who wins, because both are good fighters. Nate is more experienced, he has good boxing and good cardio. I respect both.”

Jake has now some good experience in boxing and is learning every day, but Nate is a beast! When you go to fight him, you need to prepare for war. I think he has more experience and is the favourite.”
