Video: YouTuber Logan Paul gets knocked out COLD – by UFC fighter Paulo Costa
Infamous YouTuber Logan Paul is interested in a career as a professional fighter, but he might have been over his head when he challenged topranked middleweight Paulo Costa to a sparring match. In his latest video, Paul shows his 25 million followers how he spars and wrestles with “The Eraser” Costa.
Even though Paul does very well against one of the most intimidating fighters in the UFC, he ultimately gets knocked out COLD. Afterwards, he receives praise from both Costa and his trainer:
“You’re gonna do MMA for sure,” said Costas trainer. “You know how to fight!”
“90% of guys who go to train MMA have good technique but not hard spirit, not big heart, you know,” Costa added. “You have both!”
Logan has fought twice in highly-popular boxing bouts against follow YouTuber KSI. Their first fight ended in a draw, but their second bout, who was a professional boxing match, saw KSI taking home the victory by split decision.
24-year-old Logan Paul has credentials as a wrestler and has been clear with his intentions to compete in MMA, something that has sparked a lot of attention from the MMA community. Bellator fighter Dillon Danis, with whom Logan Paul has an ongoing feud, has numerous times expressed his interest in taking on Paul in the cage.
