YouTuber Logan Paul has been taking on other influencers in high profile grudge matches since pivoting from vlogging to boxing — but he just leveled up (or tried to, at least) by stepping into the ring with an Ultimate Fighting Championship pro.
Brazilian MMA fighter Paulo Costa currently competes in the middleweight division of UFC, and was well-equipped to put Paul through his paces—then on his back—during a bout of sparring.
“This morning we came here to the UFC Performance Institute,” Paul tells his viewers. “Apparently they want me to spar a guy by the name of Paulo Costa. He’s not a human, he’s a bear, he’s a 13 and 0 undefeated UFC fighter. I don’t think he liked the way I looked at him at dinner last night or something, but it’s a good thing I’m a professional boxer now, who’s 0 and 1. God damn it.”
“They’re putting the headgear on me, and not him,” he continues. “That’s how you know I’m fucked.”
And fucked he certainly is; after trading blows in the boxing ring for a little while, Costa puts him down in a single punch.
“How’d I do?” Paul asks when he regains consciousness. “I did good?”
Undeterred, he then takes on Costa in mixed martial arts. “You’re gonna do MMA for sure,” Costa’s trainer tells Paul, encouragingly. “You know how to fight, you know how to fight.”
Costa agrees: “90 percent of guys who go to train MMA have good technique, but not hard spirit, not big heart, you know? You have both.”
