Logan Paul wants to make it clear to UFC President Dana White that he isn’t his brother Jake.
The Paul brothers have been turning heads in the world of combat sports. Logan has had a pro boxing match and an amateur bout, while Jake is 2-0 as a pro. Logan is set to have an exhibition bout with Hall of Fame elect Floyd Mayweather, while Jake has been angling for fights against Conor McGregor and Dillon Danis.
There is a clear experience gap between Logan and Mayweather. As mentioned, Logan is 0-1 as a pro with the loss coming to fellow YouTuber KSI. Mayweather was a multi-division world champion and ended his career with a perfect record of 50-0.
White was asked about Mayweather vs. Logan when speaking to the NELK Boys. White dismissed the bout and said that Paul got “beat up” by a “video game kid.”
During an edition of his IMPAULSIVE podcast, Logan responded to White by reminding him that he isn’t like his brother Jake (h/t Low Kick MMA).
“He [Jake] pissed off Dana White. Now Dana has grouped us together which sucks. I love Dana White, I love the UFC. Now Dana thinks we’re the same person.
“We’re so different. I love the UFC fights. I want to do a UFC fight one day. I’m not saying now, let me get my skills up. Dana, take me back. I’m not Jake! Please. Bro, he’s given me tickets to go to UFC fights before. F*ck! F*ck! I love Conor McGregor dude.”
