Joe Rogan Gives His Prediction For Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul Fight
The 50-0 boxer and YouTube star, who turned professional to fight rival KSI last year, have been rumoured to be mixing it up in a boxing superfight, continuing the absurdity that is 2020.
Rogan discussed the potential bout on his podcast and laughed off claims that Paul could beat 'Money' inside the squared circle.
In the cage, however, the UFC commentator believes it's a different kettle of fish. Rogan thinks "really good athlete" Paul, with his wrestling experience, would be good value to win the contest.
He referenced a video of Paul training and hanging with UFC star Paulo Costa, who challenged Israel Adesanya for the middleweight title at UFC 253.
"One thing I will tell you - Logan Paul is a really good athlete and he's an enormous man," the 53-year-old said on the Joe Rogan Experience.
"Now if it was an MMA fight, I would pick Logan Paul. Listen to me - there's a video of Logan Paul wrestling with Paulo Costa. It's a real, live wrestling sparring session where he is exhibiting real skill. He knows how to scramble, he's got real wrestling skill. I think he wrestled in college as well.

"Either way, him with Paulo Costa. Paulo is the UFC's number one contender in the middleweight division. And a wrecking machine. The two of those guys, they're doing wrestling drills and sparring, and Logan Paul is hanging in there, man, with an elite MMA world championship caliber fighter.
"A guy that went to war with Yoel Romero and walked him down. Paulo Costa's a monster and Logan Paul is hanging in there. I don't care what anybody says - what I saw in that, I'm like that kid is impressive."
Matchroom boxing head honcho Eddie Hearn, who promoted KSI vs Logan Paul II in Los Angeles, doubts Paul will take on Mayweather and told SPORTbible it would be "the biggest mismatch in boxing history".
A boxing fan account has already stated that Paul could beat Mayweather by taking advantage of the "vulnerabilities" exposed by Conor McGregor in 2017.
Despite nobody ever really laying a glove on Mayweather in his stunning career, undefeated boxer Conor Benn isn't counting out Paul.
"Maybe I am not joking. Maybe I think Logan Paul will beat him," he told iFL TV.
"What if he does? I mean, what if he does? What if it's one shot that lands?
"50 fights... All he needs is one shot of Logan. All Logan has to do is land one on him. Just one."
