Youtuber Logan Paul is Serious About Wanting to Fight in the UFC… He’s Sent a Message to Dana White Asking For an Opportunity…
In one of the stupidest MMA news stories of the day, Logan Paul has very seriously requested a UFC contract from Dana White. Paul, better known for his Youtube channel, was a successful high-school wrestler as a kid, but has no professional fighting experience.
He’s set to take on fellow Youtuber KSI in a white collar boxing match in Manchester on August 25. Paul has clearly taken a few too many punches to the head because he thinks he stands a chance in the UFC. I say let him fight. Give us all a laugh.
virus man is possibly one of the most annoying people on the planet. Seriously, I had no idea who he was until he insulted half of Japan by laughing at dead people in the infamous forest Aogigahara, where many people go to commit suicide. Yeah, let him fight.
Paul is not the first celebrity to talk about fighting in MMA. Dan Bilzerian has discussed it in the past, as have the likes of 50 Cent and Wiz Khalifa. They’ve shown enough sense to keep out of the cage for now. Paul seems entranced by violence.
TMZ – being the incredible source of news that they are – decided that someone should spend their day asking Paul if he would ever fight professionally. The 23-year-old Ohio native is adamant that he is a natural athlete. He said:
“I want a fight a UFC fighter. I wrestled my whole life. There’s no reason I can’t, I’ve done athletics my whole life. Dana White, you watching this bro? Pick a fight for me bro.”
The thing is though… you can never say never when it comes to the possibility of Dana White making a dollar. When asked who would be his ideal first opponent, he said ‘CM Punk.’ I mean if Paul’s wrestling is anywhere near as good as he thinks it is, then a middleweight clash against CM Punk could work.
This would be a new low even for the UFC, so don’t worry, it’s not going to happen. Neither Logan nor his younger brother Jake will ever be a pro-fighter. The older of the Brother’s Paul also said that it would be cool if one of them fought Conor McGregor.
I would genuinely pay to watch that fight because I can think of few things more entertaining than Conor McGregor kicking Logan Paul in the head and then hitting him with a heavy left into oblivion.
Anyway, the moral of the story is that if you are a ‘celebrity’ – even a Z-List one like this clown, then you can do what you want really. Maybe he’ll go flat out training like former UK reality star Aaron Chalmers and get signed by Bellator. Who knows.
The world of combat sports is strange enough. Maybe they should give him the next shot against Conor McGregor just to watch Nate Diaz’s head explode. That would be hilarious too.
