 Exclusive: Dana White says ‘I f****** guarantee you’ Jake Paul won’t call out UFC legend Anderson Silva after KO of Tito Ortiz


Dana White says ‘I f****** promise’ fans will not see Jake Paul call out Anderson Silva after his first round knockout of Tito Ortiz.

‘The Spider’ has won consecutive boxing bouts since his release from the UFC and subsequent retirement from MMA.

After outboxing former world champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, Silva then brutally knocked out fellow UFC legend Ortiz with one punch in Florida this past weekend.

The former middleweight champion has enjoyed a career resurgence at the age of 46 and has welcomed the prospect of facing either one of the Paul brothers following their introduction to boxing.

After Logan went the distance with Floyd Mayweather, a fight with Silva was touted and younger brother Jake is also making waves in the sport after beating Tyron Woodley – a fellow former UFC champion.

Yet White believes you will not hear the 24-year-old calling out the 6ft 2ins legend as ‘he likes to fight old guys that are too small’.

“Anderson Silva might actually be the GOAT of combat sports,” White told reporters in attendance at the UFC Apex following Tuesday’s Dana White’s Contender Series 39 event.

“It’ll be interesting to see what he does next.

“I f****** guarantee you this; you ain’t gonna see Jake Paul calling Anderson Silva out.

“That I f****** promise you. (Silva is) his size, and he’s actually good. He’s old, which is what Jake Paul likes to fight old guys.

“He likes to fight old guys that are too small and that are absolutely, positively washed up.”
