- Logan Paul is confident about finishing Paddy Pimblett in a UFC fight
- “The Maverick” insists that Floyd Mayweather still owes him a lump sum of money
Logan Paul has begun generating buzz once again as he doubled down on his interest to join the UFC. The internet star got his sights locked on “loud mouth” Paddy Pimbkett as he believes a fight between him and “The Baddy” would be a sell-out. More importantly, Paul is positive about beating the UFC rising star.
Pimblett told Paul he’d submit him if they met in the cage.
On the other hand, “The Maverick” claims that Floyd Mayweather still owes him a large portion of the money from their exhibition match.
“The Baddy” would be easy
In a recent podcast appearance, Paul confidently predicted that regardless of how good Pimblett appears to be in MMA, he would take him out once they finally meet inside the octagon.
“I’m taking out Paddy The Baddy dude, I’m taking him out,” Paul, who has never fought in MMA, said on The True Geordie podcast.
While there seems to be no question about Paul’s confidence about his MMA game, it will all boil down to what UFC president Dana White’s take on the matter. It can be recalled that White already said that he’s “not saying no” to Paul possibly making it to the UFC.
However, the YouTuber is not sure if that is still the case after he poked fun at the UFC boss’ “bald” head in a recent video.
“I think I texted him about something, we kind of f***ed Dana over a little bit, we didn’t f*** him over but I did him a little dirty and he might be upset with me,” Paul confessed. “The bald video with me and KSI, the scene where me and him where sitting down we cut to Dana White.
“The joke was we are trying to be successful, because all bald people are successful,” he added. “The joke was that Dana’s bald, he’s successful and then he goes ‘I think you’ve got it figured out’ but we shoot that separately. So Dana didn’t know what context that was going to be in. We were poking fun at him being bald and successful, but it was used in a Prime commercial that’s the only thing. Maybe he’s upset about it I don’t know, maybe he doesn’t give a f*** and I’m overthinking which I often do.”
Mayweather’s debt is now about $5 million
Paul has been throwing shade at Mayweather over payment dispute from their epic exhibition match last year. The boxing legend previously said Paul already got paid but according to “The Maverick,” he has never received it in full.
At the top of his head, Paul declared that Mayweather still owes him roughly $5 million.
“My guess is between two and five mill, conservatively,” Paul claimed. “This motherf***er. Sure I’ve ‘been paid’, not in full. Technically, you’re right dude but where’s the rest of my money.
“This will be settled, I’m young dude and I’ve got time, I’ve got f***ing time to troll, to settle a civil lawsuit – he’s just a big spender, he can’t spend like that,” he ranted. “He has so many chains, bro. That’s a depreciating asset. Get yourself something that will hold value; buy some real estate. Maybe buy an Original [Paul’s new NFT collection], we’d love to have you. Invest in Prime [Paul’s joint energy drink venture with KSI]. Do something smart with your money, Floyd.”
Mayweather has previously said that amid Paul’s accusations, it was still the YouTuber who asked for a rematch and not him. Paul has now refuted it and even bared that Mayweather’s team reached out to him but he insisted that they pay him the rest of his money first.
“Let me just set the record straight, why the f*** would I ask for a rematch with someone who doesn’t pay you for the fight? If I haven’t been paid for the first one, why on God’s green Earth would I ask for another one knowing full well I’m probably also not going to get paid the money that I was owed for my work? You dumba**,” Paul exclaimed.
“Second off, they asked us for a rematch! He was supposed to fight on top of the Burj Al-Arab; the seven-star hotel with a helipad up top,” he continued. “Would have been amazing. I get called a month-and-a-half before because some s*** happened with his opponent and they go ‘would you want to fight Floyd in a month-and-a-half?’ This is someone on his team, or someone who at least thinks they could get the deal done enough to make a confidential phone call. I go ‘bro, what? Pay me for the first f***ing fight,’ and hung up.”
Without a single pro MMA match under his belt, Logan might still have to do a lot of convincing in order to get the UFC’s nod. Mayweather, on the other hand, is set to return to Japan for another exhibition match.
