Logan Paul could be a little more comfortable with UFC president Dana White after signing a massive deal.
No, Paul has not signed with the UFC but with his parent company. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Paul, a YouTube sensation, signed with WME. Paul had been with WME rival CAA for six years.
Like his brother, Jake, Logan has transitioned into the world of boxing. He recently had an eight-round exhibition fight with boxing Hall of Fame elect Floyd Mayweather. Paul survived all eight rounds and no official winner was declared.
While Jake has publicly gone after UFC president Dana White for fighter pay, Logan has gone in the opposite direction. He has publicly praised the UFC and Dana White. It all led to a phone call from White and an invitation to attend UFC 264 earlier this month.
During an edition of his IMPAULSIVE podcastPaul admitted that he did not know what to expect from the call. He was surprised when White offered him luxury seats (eg The Mirror).
“By default, my relationship with my brother will always take priority, but if I can be nice to someone, I will. So he calls me and says ‘hey, is this Logan?’, And I say ‘yeah what’s up Dana?’ And he explains that we have two tickets, but he says he has better ones. These seats are in what’s called a ‘billionaire row,’ and he says I’ll have a much better experience, and I’m kind of amazed and honored. Dana White is pleasing me, this is fantastic, and I’m like ‘sure’, I said ‘thank you Dana’, I hung up and Jake said ‘that was weird.
