This fight is closer than I thought it would be. I was concerned, as an Anderson Silva fan, that Jake Paul would knock him out à la the Tyron Woodley rematch, so a decision loss in a competitive bout is somewhat of a moral victory.
Silva has his moments, but it’s his lack of activity (offense) overall; he doesn’t really start fighting until the second round; that costs him the bout. Paul is busier and lands more punches, including a big knockdown near the end.
my rating : 3 of 5
