Logan Paul made history this Sunday while fighting Floyd Mayweather, Paul went all the way and survived 8 rounds and didn’t get knocked down. While he was clearly outmatched against Mayweather, which did not have judges to declare a winner, Paul said just stepping in the ring was an amazing experience – and not getting knocked out over the course of eight rounds, as many assumed he would, was especially rewarding.
The YouTube star is still fresh off of his match with Mayweather and has not shied over the topic of fighting any other opponent. In the post-fight press conference, Paul hinted over moving to MMA when asked about his future possibilities and also a teased a rematch with the former champion.
What is Logan Paul’s future in combat sports?
The YouTube star didn’t hesitate when asked if he thought his skills might translate to an MMA cage. According to him, he’d “absolutely” consider doing an MMA fight and believes he would be better in that realm than he is at boxing. Paul also said he wants to do at least one MMA fight before he steps away from combat sports for good.
“I was grabbing him, yeah, I’d do MMA, for sure, because I am a good grappler. You know, I’m a wrestler at heart.” Paul said to reporters.
His younger brother Jake Paul is set to fight the former UFC champion Tyron Woodley and aiming to fight with Conor McGregor as his next fight, seeing his younger brother challenging fighters from the octagon it’s quite inevitable that Logan Paul would definitely try his luck inside the cage.
