Jake Paul is set for the stiffest test of his young boxing career when he faces Anderson Silva on Saturday night. The social media star and the UFC legend meet in the main event of a Showtime pay-per-view event from Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona.

Paul is 5-0 as a professional boxer and three of his previous wins have come over UFC veterans, knocking out Ben Askren and then beating former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley by decision and knockout in the rematch. Neither Askren nor Woodley have the striking pedigree of Silva, however, who is known as one of the best strikers in UFC history. Silva also holds a 3-1 boxing record, which includes a notable win over former middleweight world champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

Also of note on the card, former NFL running back Le’Veon Bell will face former UFC star Uriah Hall and social media personality Dr. Mike Varshavski will battle boxer and UFC veteran Chris Avila.

CBS Sports will be with you throughout the entire way on Saturday, so be sure to follow along with the live results and highlights below.
