Jake Paul vs Anderson Silva LIVE RESULTS: Start time TONIGHT, live stream, undercard latest for HUGE boxing fight | The Sun

YOUTUBE star Jake Paul is back in the ring for a mouth-watering clash against MMA legend Anderson Silva TONIGHT.

The Problem Child weighed in at the LOWEST weight of his career for the catchweight bout against Silva in Arizona.

Paul, 25, was due to fight rival Tommy Fury in August but plans fell through after an issue with the Brit's US visa.

A bout with Hasim Rahman Jr was also set up, but that also fell through due to a problem making weight on the heavyweight fighter's side.

Now 47-year-old Silva will step up to plate, in what is a massive step-up for Paul, who knocked out Tyron Woodley last December.

      “I don’t feel pressure any more because everything I do in this sport and MMA I do with my heart.

      "I think now is the next step for me. I try to enjoy my life, and when people think that’s too much pressure because I need to prove that I represent the MMA Community – no, I represent myself and represent my fans.”

        Why Dana White is the real reason for fight

        Jake Paul revealed Dana White is the reason he is fighting UFC legend Anderson Silva.

        Paul said: “I think it’s because I’m the No1 figurehead that is exposing his business model and how much of a shark he is and how poorly he treats his fighters.

        “He said I wouldn’t fight Anderson Silva, who is one of UFC’s greats, and now here I am fighting him.

        "And he largely, in part, promoted that. He’s the reason why I took this fight… it's to prove him wrong and shut him the hell up.”
