Since joining the company last week, UFC’s newly recruited star Bo Nickal has made headlines after headlines. He called out some of the biggest names in UFC and the entertainment industry during his short tenure, including Youtuber and WWE wrestler Logan Paul.
The three time NCAA Division one champion earned a UFC contract when he defeated Donovan Beard via submission at Dana White Contender Series. At the event, he called out both Khamzat Chimaev and Logan Paul.
“If the UFC wishes, give me that Swedish dude,”
“He might not even be the best guy because he can’t even make weight, but if that’s the case, I’ll take him.”
“If not, then give me Logan Paul. UFC debut. Me vs. Logan Paul, I know he has some skills. If we can’t do it in the UFC, let’s do it in the WWE. I’ll meet you in the ring.” He added.
Logan Paul is definitely a big name in the entertainment industry. He recently signed a contract with WWE. Paul appeared in the WWE ring twice this year and emerged victorious in those two matches. Paul is scheduled to face WWE Undisputed Universal Champion Roman Reigns at WWE Crown Jewel on November 5 in Saudi Arabia, which will be the biggest WWE match of Paul’s young career.
Bo Nickal recently appeared on the Ariel Helwani The MMA Hour Podcast, where he acknowledged all of Paul’s achievements and success. He wishes to meet Logan Paul in the ring wherever he wants.
“He’s obviously a big name.”
“And we can do it in the UFC or WWE. I’m down, I’m a wrestler, right? So, why not go pro?”
UFC and WWE don’t do crossovers often. Some big names from WWE, including Brock Lesnar and CM Punk, appeared in UFC, with Lesnar returning to WWE after leaving UFC. Similarly, UFC stars Ronda Rousey and Cain Velasquez also appeared in WWE, and Rousey enjoyed great success and is still active in WWE.
There is no chance Nickal faces Paul in UFC , it would be both redundant and useless but it has potential in the WWE.
Bo Nickal claimed he would become the biggest star if he met Logan Paul, and UFC should not have a problem with that.
“I didn’t talk to them about it. I didn’t ask them if they liked it or not. But I’m down to compete in any arena. I don’t think that it would be a bad thing at all for the UFC. Like I go in there, dismantle Logan Paul in the WWE ring, that makes me an even bigger star in the UFC.”
