Dana: Arrest Me If I Book Logan Paul
While Logan Paul would want to fight in the UFC, Dana White feels that he should be arrested if he ever books the YouTube star inside the Octagon.
Paul floated the idea of a UFC fight after his draw with fellow YouTuber KSI in August, where 784,000 people would pay $10 apiece to watch their fight. Brendan Schaub said that it’s entirely possible for the UFC to have the Ohio native on a card.
“That guy would get murdered here,” White told MMA Fighting following the UFC 229 press conference in New York City. “He would get hurt badly. If I ever let him fight in the UFC, I should be arrested.”
“I know everyone is going to say, ‘You let CM Punk fight in the UFC. Look, I have no hate for [Paul]. Look at the business that guy has built on YouTube and the number of pay-per-views they did on YouTube. They did 800,000 [buys] at 10 bucks for two guys that fight fans have never heard of.
“So, he’s built a great business for himself and good for him. But trust me, don’t play around over here. You will get hurt.”
