Logan Paul is rumored to fight MMA Star Anderson Silva after a leak suggests that the two will throw down in September. This fight would be a huge step in Logan Paul's fighting career because many want to see if he is just more than a spectacle and if he has true fighting potential. A match versus Silva would be interesting, but again the age difference between the two fighters will still draw a fair amount of criticism.
Still recovering from the fight with the 50-0 boxer Floyd Mayweather, Logan Paul has his sights set on one of the UFC's greatest legends: Anderson Silva.
The influencer, now turned professional boxer, Logan Paul impressed the world with his endurance against the legendary boxer Mayweather as the fight went the full distance. Logan, still the young gun on the pro boxing scene, has a lot to prove, and now he turns his fists towards Anderson Silva.
Anderson Silva has a storied fighting career of his own and that's putting it insultingly mildly: The man holds several UFC records and is widely considered to be one of the best – if not the best – MMA fighters of all time. Without question, Silva is the greatest middleweight in MMA history and only age was able to slow him down, after an insanely unfortunate leg-break in 2013. For Logan, a legend such as The Spider is a great opponent because he can't really lose: If Logan is defeated, he lost to one of the GOATs, if he wins... well he wins and beats a legend. Obviously, Logan will like his chances though, since Silva is closer to 50 than 40 and had to recover from a severe leg break while already south of 35.

According to DM leaked by MMA fighter Dillon Danis on July 19, a huge fight will take place between no other than Logan Paul and Anderson Silva. According to Viktor Doria, the event will feature Logan Paul vs Anderson Silva.
