Youtube star Logan Paul was recently on the mats with UFC fighter Paulo Costa at the UFC Performance Institute in Las Vegas.
Logan Paul who has more than 20 million subscribers on Youtube and is a multi-millionaire, has recently transitioned to a combat sports career when he fought fellow YouTuber KSI two times. The first match was a draw and the second was a unanimity decision loss.
He decided to train with Brazilian powerhouse Paulo Costa, who is 13-o and a BJJ black belt.
“I don’t think he liked the way I looked at him at dinner or something, but it’s a good thing I’m a professional boxer now who’s 0-1,”
Paul was wearing head gear and was on the receiving end of a massive overhand right which face-planted him to the canvas.
In the grappling segment, Paul did a bit better.
Logan Paul has a solid Wrestling background. He grew up in Ohio where the sport of Wrestling is king. He wrestled intensively in high school.
Logan Paul qualified for the state-level Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) 2013 Division I Wrestling Individual Championships.
Costa said to Paul:
“Ninety percent of guys who go to train MMA have good technique, but not hard spirit, not big heart, you know? You have both.”
