Jake Paul defeated Anderson Silva and called out Nate Diaz and Canelo

In the early hours of the morning, YouTube star Jake Paul had the most difficult test in his career so far, which he successfully passed. He defeated the legendary Anderson Silva and knocked him down once so that he secured the victory and remained undefeated and now boasts victories over two former UFC champions.

Although the referees' scorecards don't look like it, Jake had quite a rough night as he really took some hard shots from Silva. But Jake didn't owe him either, and the impression was that he was constantly looking for that knockout with one punch, and in the last round, Jake really sent him to the floor.

Jake started the fight quite aggressively and wanted to force Silva to fight on the back foot by constantly throwing front straights to the body and head and complementing it with strong hooks to the head. It is known that Silva is good at counterattacks by nature and skillfully avoided blows, and once he rocked Jake solidly with a left direct.

In the second round, it was Silva who initiated the fight, challenging Jake to throw hard punches. He hit Silva with a strong uppercut that really shook Paul and his confidence grew a lot. Jake was obviously looking for that right "overhand" in order not to knock Silva out, but he skillfully avoided everything and forced Paul to the ropes, who used a clinch in order not to get out.

Later on, Silva closed the distance better and hit better, and once again he rocked Jake well with a right uppercut. In the last round, Jake sent Silva to the floor and won by decision (77-74, 78-73, 78-73).

After the victory, Jake said:

"I want Nate Diaz.

He's a bitch," Paul said, according to Damon Martin of MMAFighting.com. "He tried to come into my locker room. He tried to cause some shit. Then he always leaves the fucking arena. Nate Diaz, stop being a bitch and fight me."

Jake passed his toughest test yet and remained undefeated, and what awaits him next remains to be seen.
