Bellator open to signing Logan Paul after Mayweather showdown
Logan Paul stunned the combat sports community after going through the distance against Floyd “Money” Mayweather at Florida’s Miami Gardens. The highly-anticipated exhibition showdown ended without a decision as neither of the two was able to clinch a finish.
Nevertheless, withstanding the pressure of one of the boxing GOATs has earned the YouTuber heaps of praise. Mayweather, 44, also hailed the way Logan used his height and weight advantage against him, something he learned during his wrestling days in high school.
Another big name that Logan has impressed is Bellator MMA President Scott Coker. The promotion president was in attendance in Miami to see the Logan-Mayweather masterclass from up close.
Unlike UFC President Dana White, who made it clear that he doesn’t want to involve YouTubers, Coker said he is “absolutely” willing to give Logan an MMA fight.
In a post-match interview, Coker affirmed: “I think this kid has shown athletic ability to go in there with Floyd but also we know he’s a high school all-star wrestler from Ohio and I think they’re just getting better and better at combat sports. If he wanted to get into MMA, we would do it.”
Paul has boxed three times, but he hasn’t yet opened his win account. He once hinted at trying out MMA too since his wrestling background will help him in grappling.
