Logan Paul has an idea for a potential debut fight in the UFC, but only if a big celebrity match takes place as well.
One of the wildest rumors in the combat sports world this year is the potential fight between two billionaires – Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Elon Musk.
It’s a story that has led to UFC’s President Dana White telling the New York Times that he would love to promote it. According to the Times, White said it would be an exhibition match “and outside official UFC jurisdiction and rights deals, though he would help produce the event.”
If the fight does happen, then part-time WWE Superstar Logan Paul wants to be a part of it. Paul, who has boxed the legendary Floyd Mayweather and wrestled some of the biggest names in WWE history like Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and The Miz, talked about his desire to be on the card.
While Logan Paul has yet to fight in the UFC, it’s something he is interested in doing if the Zuckerberg-Musk fight happens.
On a recent episode of his Impaulsive podcast, Logan Paul explained his interest in fighting in the UFC if Zuckerberg fights Musk and Paul will even do it for free.
“I’m curious if Elon Musk and Zuck are fighting because that’s what I’m interested in. I’ll be honest, I pitched it internally. I pitched it to the execs that be… If Elon Musk and [Mark] Zuckerberg fight, I will do my UFC debut on the undercard for free. I’ll fight for free for charity.”
When Paul was asked for an opponent, he said he was open to anyone and then he did offer a name as well.
“Anyone. You know who I want to fight actually, because that b**** a** Andrew Tate won’t fight me? Give me Paddy Pimblett. Give me Paddy the Baddy. In the off-season, that boy looks like a blimp, and he’ll come up to my weight class and I’ll wallop him.”
Considering that Endeavor owns WWE (it’s not official yet but it will be soon), which has Logan Paul under contract and Endeavor also owns UFC, perhaps a fight in the Octagon for Logan Paul will happen. A lot of it depends on the Zuckerberg-Musk potential fight as well.
