Logan Paul has always shown interest in transitioning to MMA, and it appears that he has selected the ideal card for his debut.
Paul says he would be more than happy to fight on the same card as Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk, two billionaires who have been teasing each other for years now. UFC president Dana White is also eager to promote the fight.
“I’ll be honest, I pitched it,” Paul said on his podcast. “I pitched it internally, I pitched it to the [executives] that be, if Elon Musk and [Mark] Zuckerberg fight, I will do my UFC debut on the undercard. I’ll fight for free, for charity.”
Musk has gone so far as to train with UFC great Georges St-Pierre since first hinting at the prospect on social media, and Zuckerberg has recently developed a passion for Brazilian jiu-jitsu while studying under renowned instructor Dave Camarillo.
As for Paul, he already has an idea for an opponent for his UFC debut.
“You know who I want to fight actually cause that b**** ass Andrew Tate won’t fight me. Give me Paddy Pimblett,” Paul said. “Give me ‘Paddy the Baddy.’
“In the offseason, that boy looks like a blimp and he’ll come up to my weight class and I’ll wallop him. He’s too small when he cuts weight. When he doesn’t cut weight he’s a f****** horseshoe.”
While Pimblett typically competes as a lightweight, Paul doesn’t seem too concerned with the size differences between them with the Ohio native hitting the scales at 189.5 pounds when he had a boxing exhibition against Floyd Mayweather back in 2021.
