Paul most recently competed last December when he knocked out former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley in a rematch. Prior to that, Paul had defeated Woodley in a split decision in August 2021.
Silva, a former UFC middleweight champion, has re-invented his career through boxing as he’s looked sharp since his UFC departure in 2020. Silva won a split decision over former boxing title holder Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in the summer of 2021, then knocked out Tito Ortiz in September of that same year, and fought Bruno Machado to a no contest this past May as part of an exhibition bout.
