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.
After a successful appearance in professional wrestling during Wrestlemania, Logan is now aiming to test his skills in the UFC octagon or so he claims. Recently Paddy Pimblett addressed the hypothetical challenge with Logan.
During his recent appearance with The Schmo, ‘The Baddy’ responded:
“He knows who the boy is, doesn’t he? He knows who will put bums on seats, lad. I can’t see him mentioning anyone else. I know he’s a lot bigger than me.”
“Like, I don’t think it really matters, to be honest. I think I’d submit him quite easily and quite quickly but you never know, anything can happen in a fight. If Logan Paul ever does want the fight, lad, I’m open to hearing what numbers he’s coming at us with (laughs).”
Logan also won’t have to worry about the contract. When he invited UFC head honcho Dana White on his podcast, White signaled that he would let Logan have a one off deal with the UFC. The real problem might be the huge discrepancy in size. Jake Paul is huge – weighing around 190 pounds. While Pimblett balloons to 190lbs thanks to junk food – but ideally competes at 145lbs.
