Indeed, Paul returns to the squared circle looking for the sixth win of his career out of the same number of bouts.
The Problem Child last won with a knockout defeat over Tyron Woodley in 2021, following the initial opponent Tommy Fury’s decision to withdraw from the contest owing to injury.

But after a year out, the American is preparing for the ring once more – though it will undoubtedly be the hardest test he’s ever encountered.
Silva, a UFC Hall of Famer, to this day holds the record for the longest win streak in the sport's history. But the Brazilian used to box professionally too – competing in three fights and winning four of them. Though the veteran might be considered a bit past it, being 47 years old and losing six of his final seven UFC bouts.
Meanwhile, Paul and Anderson Silva will pocket multi-millions for their bout. Some reports have suggested that the internet sensation he could earn a career-high payday reaching over £2million.
"I hope it does well," Paul said of tonight's fight. "I think it will, the numbers are all showing that. So yeah, this could definitely be my highest payday. I haven’t really focused on that, even saying that is one of the first times I've even thought about it.
"Just because of how much the fight means and how focused I am and how big the challenge is at hand. The payday is just the cherry on top for the opportunity at hand.”
