This is the moment Jake Paul Anderson dropped Silva before claiming the biggest win of his boxing career.
The boxer-turned-youtuber beat Silva on points in Arizona, earning a knockdown in the eighth and final round.
Paul landed a counter right hook to smack defeat in the face of the Brazilian UFC legend.
The American was awarded a unanimous decision 77-74 and 78-73 twice as he defeated his idolized rival.
He said: “It’s a surreal moment. Hard work pays off. First and foremost, I want to thank Anderson.
“He was my idol growing up. He inspired me to be great. He was the first celebrity I ever met.
“Without him we wouldn’t have had a fight this year. He’s a tough mofo. A legend. I have nothing but respect for him.
“It just goes to show that everyone watching at home is chasing their dreams. It is never too late.
“I started boxing as a pro two and a half years ago and just beat one of the all-time greats because I’m obsessed with it.
“I walk so hard every day. Nothing can stand in my way. No distractions.”
