Jake Paul reveals why the Anderson Silva fight was a disaster

Jake Paul extended his undefeated streak last weekend when he defeated UFC legend Anderson Silva, and he wasted no time calling out names like Nate Diaz and Canelo Alvarez once the fight was over. Despite his performance in the fight and winning the win, Paul wasn’t all that excited about the fight’s performance from a monetary perspective, which he discussed in the last episode of Logan Paul’s Touching podcast. Paul said part of the reason was just the busy time frame, as well as the fact that he just wanted to fight because of the previous cancellations. He also said Silva’s dubious status shortly before the fight put off some ticket buyers.

“Halloween, World Series, Sunday football, this is the worst time of the year to fight, but guess what? I had to fight, all my fights from now on will be in the summer if there is no sport, all my other fights were during COVID when nobody had anything to do or anything to watch,” said Paul. “I had to fight this year… Not only did I make zero, I also lost millions of dollars running an organization with 15 employees. I think it made 200-300k, which is quite disturbing.”

“The pre-buys went crazy and on Wednesday, when the news came that Anderson said he had been knocked out and the fight was in danger, and all the press came out, the pre-buys stopped, all the way down. general public sees that…it killed ticket sales, everything went to zero,” said Paul.

After the fight, Paul called Diaz and Alvarez, and he didn’t mince his words to either opponent. “I want Nate Diaz, she’s ab****,” said Paul. “He tried to come into my dressing room. He tried to cause some stuttering, and then he always leaves the damn arena. So Nate Diaz, stop being ab**** and fight me.”

“You too, Canelo. You guys said, ‘Oh, you can’t beat somebody – you can’t beat a striker, you can’t beat a legend like Anderson Silva. I just did it, so why can’t I beat Canelo? Damn it all.”
