Famous YouTuber-turner-wrestler Logan Paul received a challenge from newly recruited MMA fighter Bo Nickal.
Bo Nickal, who recently secured a contract with the UFC, issued an open challenge for WWE’s Logan Paul. The newly signed UFC star wants to take on the famous YouTuber/Boxer/WWE star in the WWE ring.
Logan Paul was a famous but controversial figure even before he became a full-time WWE wrestler. Whether it’s his beef with other social media celebrities or defiant boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, Logan has always been in the news.
Now, despite being set to face Roman Reigns at Crown Jewel, he’s been given a challenge from the world of MMA. Bo Nickal issued a challenge to fight Logan Paul, also in the WWE ring.
MMA’s latest signing wants to make UFC debut against Logan Paul
A former three-time Penn State Wrestling National Champion, Bo Nickal, was recently offered an official UFC contract. The 26-year-old won Dana White’s Contender Series to earn his way to the UFC. Backed by a 3-0 record, Bo Nickal aims to step into the Octagon by December.
However, while interacting with a media outlet, Nickal talked about the opponent he would like to debut against. At first, Nickal nominated Khamzat Chimaev but wasn’t sure if he would make weight. He then focused on Logan Paul and his fighting skills.
The latest UFC fighter says the WWE star could be a good opponent for his debut. But, since Logan can’t face him in the octagon, he offers to fight him in the WWE ring. He said:
“Give me Logan Paul. UFC debut, me versus Logan Paun. I think, you know, I know he has skills. If we can’t do it in the UFC, let’s do it in the WWE. I’ll meet you in the ring.
