Logan Paul has previously stated that he is interested to face UFC’s rising star Paddy Pimblett in his MMA debut despite being much heavier than Pimblett.
Jake Paul practically pioneered calling out smaller men – preferably from the world of MMA to forward his boxing career. Seeing the success his brother Jake had calling out mixed martial artists from the lower weight classes, he decided to try it.
The even bigger Paul, Logan, thought it would be a great idea to challenge Liverpool’s brightest featherweight Paddy Pimblett.
While names like Michael Bisping have labeled Paul a “coward” for calling out Pimblett, he now has support from Jorge Masvidal.
During Paul’s podcast show Impaulsive, Masvidal claimed that Paul’s high school wrestling background in Ohio is the deciding factor.
“F*** yeah [Paul would win a fight between the pair], Logan’s got the wrestling and English people can’t wrestle, bro.”
“I called him out today on The MMA Hour,” Paul explained. “I said if I was going to fight someone in the octagon, in the UFC, I didn’t have an answer for Dana White when he was on the show but it’d be Paddy ‘the baddy’.”
While Pimblett is undefeated in the UFC with all wins by finishes in the first round, Masvidal believed that he hasn’t got the world champion skillset yet.
“I think he’s entertaining as f***,” Masvidal said. “I think he’s wild. But from the skillset, right now, I don’t see him being a world champ. But that could change, right, but his skill set right now, I don’t think it’s at the top, where it should be right now.”
Masvidal is a two-time UFC title challenger. He last lost to his archrival Colby Covington.
