Logan Paul predicted to BEAT Floyd Mayweather in MMA match – but Joe Rogan reckons Money is king of boxing ring
JOE ROGAN has claimed that Logan Paul could BEAT Floyd Mayweather if the pair had an MMA fight.
It has been reported that Money is in talks for an exhibition bout against YouTuber Paul.
Like many, Rogan laughed off the prospect of seeing one of boxing's best ever fight a social media star inside the squared circle.
Paul, 25, only turned professional last year in a losing effort to fellow YouTuber KSI.
Yet UFC commentator Rogan has tipped the American to beat Mayweather, 43, should they face off inside the cage.
He referenced Paul's amateur wrestling background and in particular, a video of 'The Maverick' training with MMA star Paulo Costa.
Logan Paul is a really good athlete and he's an enormous man. Now if it was an MMA fight, I would pick Logan Paul.
Speaking on the Joe Rogan Experience, the 53-year-old said: "One thing I will tell you – Logan Paul is a really good athlete and he's an enormous man.
"Now if it was an MMA fight, I would pick Logan Paul. Listen to me – there's a video of Logan Paul wrestling with Paulo Costa.
"It's a real, live wrestling sparring session where he is exhibiting real skill.
"He knows how to scramble, he's got real wrestling skill. I think he wrestled in college as well.
"Either way, him with Paulo Costa. Paulo is the UFC's number one contender in the middleweight division. And a wrecking machine.
"The two of those guys, they're doing wrestling drills and sparring, and Logan Paul is hanging in there, man, with an elite MMA world championship-caliber fighter.
"A guy that went to war with Yoel Romero and walked him down. Paulo Costa's a monster and Logan Paul is hanging in there. I don't care what anybody says – what I saw in that, I'm like that kid is impressive."
