Logan Paul says he wants to make his UFC debut on the undercard of the proposed bout between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg and he has an opponent in mind.
Musk vs. Zuckerberg has been mooted to take place inside the famed Octagon, with UFC president Dana White talking up the potential clash between the two of the world's most high-profile technology billionaires.
Former UFC middleweight and light-heavyweight contender Chael Sonnen even claimed the fight is agreed for UFC 300 next year.
Well, if Musk vs. Zuckerberg ends up being made in the UFC, then current WWE superstar Paul wants a spot on the undercard.
He even said he'd compete for free. What's more, he also has his eyes on a specific opponent.
The 28-year-old American called out Paddy Pimblett and brutally poked fun at the fighter's weight gain between fights.
Speaking on his podcast, he said: "If Elon Musk and Eric Zuckerberg fight, I will do my UFC debut on the undercard for free. I’ll fight for free for charity."
Mike Majlak replied: "Who would you fight?"
Paul continued: "Anyone. You know who I want to fight, actually, because that bitch-ass Andrew Tate won’t fight me? Give me Paddy Pimblett - give me Paddy the Baddy. In the off-season, that boy looks like a blimp, and he’ll come up to my weight class and I’ll wallop him."
Another person weighed in by suggesting the Scouser is 'too small', prompting an outburst from Paul, who replied: "Bro! He’s too small when he cuts weight!
"When he doesn’t cut weight, he’s a f**king horseshoe."
Obviously, the likelihood of Paul taking on Pimblett is extremely slim. But he does have fight experience having boxed KSI and Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition bout.
Pimblett, meanwhile, has reeled off four UFC wins in a row since he signed for the promotion.
But he hasn't fought since his controversial victory over Jared Gordon at UFC 282 last year.
