UFC featherweight contender Chan Sung Jung believes Dana White would not hesitate to bring the Paul brothers to the UFC if the opportunity presented itself.

After making their names in the rapidly rising YouTube scene, Logan and Jake Paul have made a successful crossover to combat sports. While Logan tested the professional waters against fellow internet star KSI and faced one of the greatest of all time in Floyd Mayweather, Jake has been building a record and attempting to legitimize his venture to the ring.

After knocking out YouTube peer AnEsonGib and former NBA star Nate Robinson, “The Problem Child” boosted his competition to experienced combat sports veterans. In 2021, he knocked out former ONE and Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren before edging past former UFC titleholder Tyron Woodley on the scorecards.

After his chance to add the first professional boxer to his record fell through with Tommy Fury’s withdrawal, Paul ran it back with Woodley on December 18. In brutal fashion, Paul sent “The Chosen One” face first into the canvas. While many still doubt his ability to challenge the pros, no one can question Paul’s power and fundamental skills.

Zombie Sees A UFC Future For The Paul’s

Following his second triumph over a former UFC champion, Paul called out Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal, two of the biggest stars in the world’s premier MMA organization. It wasn’t the first time the 34-year-old has had the UFC on his mind.

The Ohio native has consistently slammed Dana White for the promotion’s fighter pay structure, set his sights on the likes of Kamaru Usman, Conor McGregor, and Michael Bisping, and even had a face-to-face with Daniel Cormier at UFC 261. But despite the evident bad blood, one former title challenger believes the UFC would welcome Jake and his brother Logan to the promotion with “open arms.”

In a video uploaded to his YouTube channel, “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung addressed the Paul brothers’ success in the squared circle. Considering the business acumen of White, the #4-ranked UFC featherweight doesn’t believe bad relations would get in the way of the YouTubers-turned-boxers making their way to the Octagon.

“I think that’s what they are planning on doing. Logan did say he was retiring from boxing. I am not sure if Logan and Jake are on good terms with Dana White. There was a shade being thrown around by Jake on Twitter. Will the UFC take Logan and Jake Paul in? With open arms. Dana White is a smart businessman and he’ll do whatever is good for business.” (h/t Calf Kicker)

The Paul brothers are yet to show any real interest in testing their skills inside the cage rather than the ring. Jake seems content on inviting top UFC names over to boxing, and given his results so far and the lucrative paychecks, who can blame him?

Nevertheless, should their success and the attention they garner continue to skyrocket, perhaps the UFC President will decide to dip his feet into the crossover market. For now, at least, White will seemingly continue to brush aside talk of doing business with the Paul brothers.

Do you agree with “The Korean Zombie?” Would Dana White welcome the Paul brothers to the UFC?

Logan Paul Claims Floyd Mayweather Owes Him Purse From June Exhibition Boxing Match

Logan Paul

Professional boxer and YouTube content creator, Logan Paul has claimed that former multiple-time and weight boxing champion, Floyd Mayweather Jr. still owes him money from his fight purse following the pair’s June exhibition boxing match.

Paul, the elder brother of fellow professional boxer and content creator, Jake Paul, boasts a 0-1 professional boxing record, dropping a split decision rematch loss to fellow YouTuber KSI back in November 2019.

No official victor was announced from Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather’s June exhibition bout

Matching with the retired Mayweather for a summer exhibition boxing match, Paul headlined the card against the Grand Rapids native from the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida – battling over the course of eight, three-minute rounds in the exhibition bout, where no official winner of the bout was announced or considered. Per the CompuBox stats, Mayweather landed at a 40.2 per cent clip (43 punches from 103 thrown), while Paul managed a 12.9 per cent success rate (28 punches from 217 thrown).

Whilst Mayweather praised Ohio native, Paul’s ability inside the squared circle following the bout during his post-fight press conference, the latter reluctantly admitted that he would be returning him questioning himself if the former undisputed world champion had allowed him to survive the eight round limit. 

Posting a recent story on Instagram, however, Logan Paul has now claimed that Mayweather along with his promotion still owe him money following their June exhibition boxing match.

Pay me my money your f*cking cornball of a human,” Logan Paul said in relation to his summer exhibition boxing match with Floyd Mayweather. (H/T MMANews)

Paul’s most recent appearance near the squared circle came earlier this month where he attended the professional boxing match between his aforenoted brother, Jake Paul, and former undisputed UFC welterweight champion, Tyron Woodley.

Paul would go on to score his second career victory over Woodley in the ‘Sunshine State’, stopping the St. Louis native with a thunderous sixth round one-punch knockout.

CM Punk Backs The Paul Brothers: ‘I Did It And I Know What It Takes’

CM Punk seems to support the Paul Brothers stepping into the world of combat sports.

The YouTube sensations have crossed over into boxing over the last few years and have enjoyed great financial success during their short time in the sport.

Logan Paul took part in a mega-money exhibition boxing match against Floyd Mayweather earlier this year. The 26-year-old managed to go eight full rounds with arguably the best boxer of all time but didn’t seem to have any real ability.

Jake Paul has taken a different path. ‘The Problem Child’ is 5-0 as a professional boxer but is yet to face an actual boxer. Paul has picked up wins over a fellow internet celebrity, a basketball player, and two past their prime MMA fighters.

CM Punk Says If It Makes Money, You’re Doing Nothing Wrong

The two brothers’ have not exactly been welcomed into the boxing fraternity and many fans have called them out for tarnishing the sport with their cash grab fights.

CM Punk was once in a similar position to Logan and Jake, having twice tried his luck in the UFC. Phil Brooks made his name in the WWE but wanted to actually compete in a real fight. Punk was dominated by Mickey Gall and Mike Jackson before calling it quits and heading back to his old gig.

The AEW star seems to be a fan of what the Paul Brothers are doing.

“I think everything’s entertainment. I think some people conflate being a fighter with being an entertainer, but when it makes dollars, it makes sense,” CM Punk recently told ESPN. “And what the Paul brothers are doing, I think for the lack of a better term, it’s old school pro wrestling, right?

“This is stuff — you could say they’re crossing over, but there’s so many similarities between the two businesses. They command attention. People want to see them get knocked out, they know this, but they’re putting themselves out there. They’re putting themselves on the line. I’ll never criticize in a negative way or fashion anybody who makes the walk, anybody who trains their ass off. Because I did it and I know what it takes. And you put yourself out there, you put yourself on the line.

“A lot of the times — a lot of the sacrifice goes unnoticed. But it’s what it is. When [Floyd] Mayweather crossed over and did a match at WrestleMania, I’m sure we’re eventually going to see [Conor] McGregor come over… [Ronda] Rousey was excellent when she came over. The bottom line is making money. If you’re making money, you’re technically not really doing anything wrong.” (Transcribed by Cageside Seats)

UFC star Nate Diaz is taking aim at the Paul brothers and is accusing them of trying to hide from him at the recent Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley boxing rematch.

Diaz and Jake have gone at it on social media many times before, and he was also the target of Jake’s post-fight ring interview just minutes after knocking out Woodley. Diaz has made it clear that he doesn’t plan on moving to box anytime soon, but he’s certainly not ruling out a fight with either one of the Paul brothers.

According to Diaz, security personnel was charged with protecting the Paul brothers from Diaz during the event. He blasted the Paul brothers during a recent Instagram post.

“The Paul sisters hired this security team to make sure I wouldn’t get to them like I was actually trying to,” Diaz said. “But it’s all good with u guys I don’t take this fight thang with you two serious. You guys playing boxing with wrestlers who can’t box or lil a** Floyd and that’s not cool bruh but it’s good. I’m a real fighter from the real fight game so don’t trip so hard when you see me fellas let’s just be friends it’s good.”

Nate Diaz Is Planning His UFC Return In 2022

Diaz last fought earlier this year at UFC 263 against Leon Edwards, losing via unanimous decision. He’s called for the UFC to put him on one of the upcoming pay-per-views to fight Dustin Poirier and other opponents.

Despite his long hiatus from the fight game, he’s remained active on social media and has gotten into spats with both Logan and Jake in the past. He could be on the way to fighting one of them in the boxing ring sooner rather than later.

Logan Paul has reacted to Tommy Fury pulling out of his December 18th boxing match against Jake Paul.

It was recently announced that Fury had withdrawn from the bout suffering with “a severe chest infection and a broken rib” and is “absolutely heartbroken” after being forced out of the biggest fight of his life.

The bout had garnered attention throughout the combats sports world as the often polarizing Paul was seen to be going against the toughest test of his short career by fighting a real boxer for the first time. If all goes well for Paul on December 18th there are still hopes the fight can be made in the future from Team Fury. Fury’s promoter Frank Warren had this to say

“We are gutted for Tommy. This was a big opportunity for him to show the world what he can do. Unfortunately, he’s had to withdraw now as he’s clearly not anywhere near 100 percent. We’ll be working with Jake Paul’s team to see if we can reschedule for the New Year.”

Paul took to Twitter to confirm that Fury had withdrawn from their bout and that his former opponent Tyron Woodley would be stepping in on 12 days notice.

“Tommy Fury has pulled out of the fight due to a “medical condition” and Tyron Woodley is stepping in for December 18th for the official rematch,” Paul wrote alongside a video statement about the opponent change.

Logan Paul Gives His Reaction

The eldest Paul took to his Instagram to give his reaction to Fury withdrawing from the fight against his brother.

“I woke up this morning feeling really bad for my brother cause Tommy Fury backed out in the fight against him. Which by the way didn’t we see this fucking coming. Tommy, ugh, it’s a good thing you’re beautiful, you sexy blue-eyed beast, ’cause you are a pussy.

“Good news though Tommy you’ve been replaced brother, sorry, that’s what happens when you fumble the bag ya bitch. But he’s [Jake Paul] fighting Tyron Woodley December 18th. The guy he fought last time, he didn’t knock him out last time this time he’s gonna leave no doubt. December 18th, Tampa, it’s gonna be nuts. Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley.”

Khamzat Chimaev

When Khamzat Chimaev told Dana White he would fight anyone at anytime, he really meant it. Chimaev is claiming that he would ‘smash’ both Logan and Jake Paul in a boxing match on the same night.

It is not a stretch to call Chimaev an absolute mad man inside the octagon. He has ran through everyone he has gone toe to toe without taking any real damage in four UFC fights. It takes a special kind of fighter to lift up their opponent, carry him and slam him in front of Dana White. He did all this, just so Dana was able to watch the mauling of Li Jingliang at UFC 267.

Chimaev wouldn’t mind stepping in the Paul’s newfound ‘profession’ and ‘smashing’ both of them inside the boxing ring. ‘The Wolf’ tweeted a few times at the brothers.

Paul answered back saying, “Listen Kumquat… you are just another UFC fighter pretending you can box. Sit down, shut up and pray you get paid fairly.”

The UFC is currently looking to book another opponent for Khamzat Chimaev before the year is up.

Chimaev is already a fan favorite as he is dominant inside the octagon and a natural on the microphone as well. All he wants to do is fight and “murder everyone”. This is the same guy that took 2 fights only 6 days apart, and took both out in dominant fashion.

Not many are looking or calling out Chimaev, but Neil Magny has been vocal about the opportunity to get inside the octagon with ‘The Wolf’. Hats off to Magny, because there aren’t fighters jumping at the opportunity to fight Chimaev.

The Paul brothers on the other hand have upcoming bouts inside the boxing ring. Jake Paul is fighting Tommy Fury on Dec.18 in Tampa, Florida. Logan Paul’s next fight is yet to be confirmed, although their have been a few rumors of potential opponents.

Do you think Chimaev could beat both Paul brothers on the same night inside the boxing ring?
