Jake Paul was outclassed, and he had a hard time finding his power punches and figuring out how to defeat Anderson Silva, the more experienced and crafty champion competing against him in the game.

Then, at long last, in the eighth and final round, Paul delivered a powerful right punch to Silva’s nose, which was immediately followed by a forceful left.

After taking a blow to the stomach, Silva fell to the ground. Unfortunately, the two minutes of gripping action he provided in response was not enough to save Paul, 25, who was dropped.

And even though it seemed during the delay that the scorecards would be cruel to the famous YouTuber after an enthralling struggle with Silva, 47, the judges instead awarded the nod to Paul in a shocking move by scoring the fight 77-74, 78-73, and 78-73 in his favor.

Silva acknowledged that it was difficult for him to compete against a young fighter in this arena, but he insisted that he gave it his all. During his victory, Paul challenged the most recent champion of the UFC main event, Nate Diaz, to a fight in 2023.

The events that took place round each round at the Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale, Arizona, were described in detail by Lance Pugmire of USA TODAY Sports.

The fighter with 20 million YouTube subscribers entered a boxing ring for Round 1 in front of a crowd that included YouTubers and hundreds of selfie-taking fans, demonstrating the strong effect of social media.

Paul, ever gregarious, made his way forward, jabbing at the all-knowing Silva. Southpaw Silva pawed aside the advances as the crowd screamed, “Silva!” Paul then landed a body shot at Silva after the fight continued. After dodging the blow to the head, Silva moved into position to deliver a clean left to Paul’s face.
