The fight managed to sell over a million PPV and both fighters managed to grab a lot of purse money and most recently he also said that he belongs to Wrestling background and would be interested in fighting in the UFC, which of course didn’t sit well with MMA purists.
UFC Welterweight fighter Darren Till who will be fighting Tyron Woodley this weekend was also not pleased with Logan Paul’s wish and said:
“Every day is hard as f*ck, every day is a little more harder on your physical & mental state. Then ye get a cunt coming along like this youtuber fella thinking he can mix it in the @ufc f*ck off will ye mate and don’t embarrass our sport.”
Whereas fighters like Sage Northcutt jumped on the opportunity to welcome Logan Paul to the UFC and both guys went on a twitter rant calling each other out with Logan Paul also mocking him by calling Sage Northcutt as ‘Northbutt’.
However, Urijah Faber last night on The Ariel Helwani Show revealed:
“Logan Paul and we had an apartment at the same place at 1600, he was a big-time wrestler, when he was growing up, he fought in MMA and I think he was also a state champion and there was back and forth banter with those guys [Logan Paul and Sage Northcutt], I actually talked to Logan Paul about coming and training MMA at our gym and a day later him and sage get into it on the internet and so I[Laughs] had kinda initial conversation on the internet about training him here in MMA and two days later, I had to say, well I guess not.”
Uriah asked Logan Paul if he wanted to fight Sage in the Octagon, to which he said:
“Well, he is not opposed to it and he does have a wrestling background and he is doing some boxing now, he is a big strong guy and I think there is some potential about a future fight”
