For better or worse in the eyes of the fans, the Paul brothers have taken over combat sports in the last few years. Logan enjoyed a two-fight series with KSI before an exhibition with Floyd Mayweather, whereas Jake is 5-0 and can’t stop making noise on the big stage.
He’s beaten Nate Robinson, Ben Askren, Tyron Woodley, and it seems like he’s far from done.
Logan spends most of his time these days working on his podcast as well as other business ventures. ‘The Problem Child’, meanwhile, is all in on training, promoting and even campaigning for better fighter pay in the UFC.
During a recent appearance on The MMA Hour, Logan was asked about what could be next for his younger brother.
“I’d love to see him fight Nate Diaz and then eventually Conor McGregor,” Paul said. “I think that’d be such a cool fight.”
Jake Paul holds the keys
At the age of just 25, Jake Paul is already making bigger mainstream waves than the majority of pro boxers. His marketing style, alongside his punching power, has made him a real force to be reckoned with.
In terms of how realistic Logan’s idea is, that all depends on the next few months. Nate Diaz has one fight left on his current UFC contract with Dana White recently noting that he’s feeling pretty confident about getting a new deal done for the king of Stockton.
McGregor, though, is still recovering from a broken leg, and fully intends on continuing his pursuit of reclaiming the UFC lightweight crown.
