When comparing Jake Paul and Anderson Silva, Tyron Woodley gives the nod to Paul.
“He’s training his ass off. He’s got KO power and he’s learned to throw that particular punch that he’s got timing on,” Woodley said.
“Anderson Silva’s a good boxer. I would say he’s one of the best boxers in MMA. I feel like I’ve got a bias to say Jorge Masvidal is the best boxer that we’ve ever seen in MMA, based upon the fact that he pieced up KJ Noons in the worst way and KJ was supposed to be the best boxer and striker at the time. Every time he got his chance against Nate Diaz or anybody that was just striking, Yves Edwards, I was in the corner for that.
“Anderson Silva is up there with a few other guys for just pure boxing.”
