Before Logan Paul has even stepped into the boxing ring to fight fellow YouTuber KSI, the controversial vlogger is already calling for a UFC fight, even targeting Conor McGregor as a potential opponent.
In a TMZ interview, Logan says that he ‘wants to fight a UFC fighter’ and when asked whether he would be willing to step into the famous UFC octagon ring the YouTuber replies: ‘Hell yeah.’
‘Dana White, are you watching this, bro? Pick a fighter for me,’ Logan says, addressing the UFC creator.

Logan clearly backs himself in succeeding in the brutal sport saying that he has experience: ‘I’ve wrestled my whole life.'
When asked whether Logan and his brother Jake Paul, a YouTuber in his own right, would be down for a UFC fight ‘for real’, the siblings agree, with Logan adding: ‘For real for real. Bro, there is no reason I can’t. I literally did athletics my whole life.’
In regards to his weight class and potential fight date, Logan said that he is in the 190lbs range and would be ready to face someone ‘late next year’.
The biggest story came next with Logan being asked to call someone out. Without missing a beat, the Ohio-born vlogger calls out UFC superstar Conor McGregor saying: ‘CM punk,’ adding that he would ‘win’ that fight.
Jake Paul too appears to be down to face a UFC fighter, saying: ‘I’d fight someone’
‘I think it would be dope to see one of us fight McGregor,’ he went on, saying that it’s not beyond the realms of possibilities, citing the Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor fight.

McGregor is due to return to the lightweight division of the UFC with a fight in October against Khabib Nurmagomedov, the current UFC Lightweight Champion, the title previously held by McGregor.
The brothers even appeared to be down for a double-team up against the former UFC champ.
The Pauls appear to be oozing confidence ahead of their fights against KSI and his brother Deji.
The sibling showdown is set to take place in Manchester on August 25 and has already generated plenty of controversy.

There were the press conference fights, which even ended up with Logan Paul’s dad being ‘spat on’ and punched in the face by a fan.
Logan also claimed he would knock KSI out in the third round and revealed in a radio interview that he bet $1 million (£760,600) on him winning. Logan Paul’s net worth is estimated to be just over $14 million (£10m).
The Manchester fight will be the first of two, with the other set to take place in the US in February 2019.
