Paul vs Silva: What was said?

Jake Paul: “Anderson Silva is the nicest guy in the world and we love him.

“If my opponent is ad *** head, I’m going to treat him like an asshole and kick his ass and I think people saw that side of me.

“But I respect this man. I will always knock him out, but respectfully, knock him out.

Anderson Silva: “When I’m done, I’m done.

“I just closed the door, it’s part of my past, thank you, and I’m leaving. But right now, I’m fine. I continue to do something very good, to spar with good children, professional fighters, Olympic champions.

“The guys helped me a lot and I continue to do something at the same level as the young people… I don’t know (if I will fight at 50). I think I’m going to fight with my grandkids at home…I think my last fight will be at 49. 49 is the number.
