It seems Logan Paul hasn’t finished competing in full-contact sports following his defeat to fellow YouTuber KSI in a closely contested boxing match this past weekend.
He has told TMZ that he wants an MMA fight, and CM Punk is an option. He specifically said:
“I think I would destroy CM Punk if I’m being honest. I don’t know if anyone would disagree with that.”
“I don’t think I could, I know I could. This isn’t about CM Punk anymore, I would wanna fight an MMA fighter, or fight in the UFC, or Bellator.”
It might seem far-fetched that Punk would compete in MMA again since he has just returned to WWE television, and in his last fight against Mike Jackson in 2018, he was comfortably defeated.
That said a fight with Logan Paul would bring in big money and only last month CM Punk was tested by the United States Anti-Doping Agency, a requirement for any fighter who wants to fight within the next six months. It would seem odd for him to stay in the USADA’s testing pool if he had no intention to compete again.
UFC President Dana White has gone on record by stating that while Punk is still under contract with them, he won’t ever fight in the UFC again. White though has gone back on statements like this numerous times in the past.
