Anderson Silva has been enjoying the life of a semi-retired athlete. Recently, Anderson took to the beach with his daughter to soak up the sun.
At the beach, Silva was seen with his daughter on his back as the two smiled brightly for the camera. The two looked to be having a wonderful time and his caption proved that to be true as he showed his love for his daughter.
Will the sunshine last for long? We will have to see as Jake Paul, 25, looks to go 6-0 as a professional boxer and make his first appearance of 2022 after bouts with Tommy Fury and Hasim Rahman Jr. fell through earlier this year. “The Problem Child” holds notable wins over former MMA champions Tyron Woodley and Ben Askren.
Silva returned to the boxing ring in June 2021, when he scored a split decision win over former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. He followed that performance with a first-round knockout of fellow UFC legend Tito Ortiz in September. The 47-year-old holds a 34-11 (1 NC) pro record in MMA and own the record for the most consecutive successful defenses of the UFC middleweight title at 10.
Now, the two will face off to see if Jake Paul can really pull off what others say is the impossible. Being undefeated is nothing to laugh at, but it’s hard to really compare Paul’s 5-0 to the luxurious career of Anderson Silva. Of course, Silva helped to truly bring MMA to the mainstream as his fights were truly a spectacle to watch and who could forget that vicious leg break?
Anything can happen in the world of fighting, but the odds just don’t seem to be in Paul’s favor as Silva’s record, along with who he has fought before are just such highlights on a great career. The fight will be taking place October 29th.
