From Youtube vlogs to combat sports, Logan Paul’s career shift has been nothing but successful. After his boxing matches with other youtubers and his 2021 debut with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), Logan Paul has shown his athletic side. His next venture potentially is into the realm of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) by signing with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).


Logan Paul has already signed a contract with the UFC to promote his energy drink PRIME by making it the “Official Sports Drink of the UFC.” This partnership, along with his desire to fight Lightweight division fighter Paddy Pimblett, could suggest Logan Paul’s next step in his combat sports career is with the UFC.


The only issue with Logan Paul fighting Paddy Pimblett is the weight class difference. Pimblett would have to go from his current weight of 155 lbs to 185 lbs to make up the difference.  Paul is more than up to join the UFC and fight Pimblett as long as Pimblett gains the weight to be in the same weight class. Logan Paul stated in an interview with  radio station KIIS, “I would happily go to the UFC but we are at different weight classes. If he’s willing to come up to my weight class in the UFC, I’d be more than happy to beat the sh*t out of Paddy The Baddy.”


Along with the UFC, Logan Paul made an appearance at WWE’s Royal Rumble back in Jan. He was a surprise entrant at number 29 of 30 followed by Royal Rumble winner Cody Rhodes. After an impressive flying collision with wrestler Ricochet, Paul was eliminated by Rhodes, helping Rhodes secure his Royal Rumble victory. Logan Paul is also likely set to appear in a match in April for WWE’s WrestleMania, but nothing has been confirmed yet about this appearance.
