Logan Paul Reveals What Happened In Surprise Phone Call With Dana White Ahead Of Conor McGregor Fight

Logan Paul has spilled the beans on an unexpected phone call he received from Dana White ahead of Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier's UFC 264 clash.

UFC president White has pulled no punches in public over his thoughts on Logan and his younger brother, Jake Paul.

YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake, who holds a 3-0 boxing record, has engaged in a heated war of words with White and ruthlessly criticised him over UFC fighters' pay.

Logan, on the other hand, has been a big admirer of the UFC chief and his work with the MMA organisation.

The 26-year-old American star secured tickets for the UFC 264 pay-per-view last Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

However, Logan was stunned when White called him up and offered to upgrade their tickets to the 'billionaire's row,' putting them not far away from the likes of former US President Donald Trump.

Speaking on his Impaulsive podcast, the YouTuber said: "I answer, and I'm not sure what to expect.

"Jake's p****d him off, him and Jake have an ongoing feud.

"But I've come out publicly and said I love Dana White, always have always will, he's a ruthless businessman, the head honcho, but I'm not sure how he feels about me.

"By default, my relationship with my brother will always take precedence, but if I can be cool with someone, I will.

"So, he calls me up and says, 'Hey, man, is this Logan?' and I'm like, 'Yeah, what's up, Dana?' and he explains that we've got two tickets, but he says he has better ones.

"These seats are in what's called 'billionaire's row,' and he says I'll have a much better experience, and I'm like flabbergasted and honoured.

"Dana White is accommodating me, this is fantastic, and I'm like 'sure,' I told him 'Thanks, Dana,' and I hung up and Jake is like, 'That was weird.'"

Logan claimed that he had White's phone number due to a group text for celebrities to bet on the Kentucky Derby horse racing festival.

The YouTuber admitted that he was disappointed that an influencer called FaZe Banks was sat next to former Victoria's Secret model Adriana Lima.

McGregor and Poirier headlined UFC 264 as the pair completed their trilogy fight in front of 20,062 fans at the T-Mobile Arena.

However, the 33-year-old Irishman suffered back-to-back defeats to Poirier after he suffered a broken leg in a first-round TKO loss (via doctor's stoppage) at UFC 264.
