Jake Paul again shushed his doubters, outpointing his biggest challenge to date in former UFC middleweight kingpin Anderson Silva.

Paul took a unanimous decision by scores of 77-74, 78-73 and 78-73, taking Silva’s shots and returning with his own to cruise ahead in later rounds, knocking the ex-champ down in the eighth and final round.
