Logan Paul has his eyes set higher than YouTube boxing matches and would like to go against real UFC fighters in the future.
He called on UFC president Dana White to find him an opponent, and even floated the names of CM Punk and Conor McGregor.
In an impromptu interview conducted by TMZ at an airport in Los Angeles, Paul talked about his future fighting plans.
I want to fight a UFC fighter, I want to fight in the Octagon… I’ve wrestled my whole life.
Logan signed a two fight contract with KSI and will be unable to fight someone else until both are finished.
He then listed off the names of some fighters he would be interested in.
Logan: Dana White, you watching this, bro? Pick a fighter for me, late next year.
Interviewer: Who would you want to fight?
Logan: CM Punk
Logan’s brother Jake was also on hand and had another, less realistic suggestion.
The Pauls entertained the idea of UFC Champion Conor McGregor
Jake: I think it would be dope to see one of us fight [Conor] McGregor
Logan: That’s what I was thinking!
The brothers did admit they are nowhere near ready to take on a professional fighter, much less a UFC champion
Logan: I’m not going to lie, for either of us to even step into the Octagon, we have to prove ourselves first.
Logan will have a chance to prove himself when he squares of against KSI on August 25. Jake Paul is fighting on the undercard against KSI’s brother Deji.
