Forget KSI, Logan Paul has revealed he believes he can beat Conor McGregor, the former Ultimate Fighting Championship featherweight and lightweight champion.
‘I want to fight a UFC fighter,’ Logan revealed, weeks before he is due to meet KSI in the ring for an amateur boxing match.
‘I’ve done athletics my whole life,’ Logan added, before telling the camera: ‘Dana White, are you watching this, bro? Pick a fight for me.’
Speaking alongside his brother Jake, the pair then reveal that they have been considering one of them fighting McGregor, and Jake believes they could ‘1000%’ beat him.
McGregor began his MMA career in 2008 and in 2015 he defeated José Aldo for the UFC Featherweight Championship via knockout 13 seconds into the first round, the fastest victory in UFC title fight history.
Speaking to TMZ, Logan then revealed that he also wants to fight CM Punk, an American mixed martial artist and former wrestler, whose MMA career has not got off the best of starts after losing his first two fights.
Logan, 23, and KSI, 25, will face off in the ring finally on 25 August at Manchester Arena; their brothers Deji and Jake are on the undercard. However Logan clearly thinks he has a chance at winning, as he has already bet $1million (£760,000) on himself to beat KSI in three rounds.
The YouTuber, whose net worth is said to be an estimated $6 million (£4.6 million), revealed his expensive gamble on Radio One.
