Logan Paul Plans To Move To UFC After KSI Rematch
The social media sensation is set to fight his social media rival for the second time on 9 November.
The rematch will take place in LA and will be the follow-up to their much debated draw last year. This time though, the pair have gone pro (well, kind of) and will ditch the head guards and don 10oz gloves when they once again go head to head at the Staples Center next month.
And Paul has got high hopes after his training, believing he's too good to mix with any old YouTuber these days.
Speaking at a press conference held at Troxy, London, he said: "I will have progressed too much to ever fight another celebrity or YouTuber after this. I am sparring professional fighters and I am beating them badly, that does so much for my confidence.
"I relied on my athleticism to carry me through the first fight and it almost worked; but now I am a boxer, I am literally a professional fighter and I feel like it. I would honestly love to fight in the UFC; I want [president] Dana White to put me in the Octagon."
The first fight, which was held in Manchester, attracted over one million pay-per-view buys - but both men disputed the result. Wonder why?

Anyway, for his training, Paul has recruited heavyweight world champion Shannon Briggs as his coach. The next match will be shown on Sky Sports Box Office in the UK.
Speaking about the rematch, Paul added: "This fight is different because it is not nerve-wracking. Last year I came here with some anxiety about my boxing ability.
"I believed in my fitness and athleticism and how hard I worked but I did not feel like a boxer, I felt like a YouTuber who was pretending.
"Now my boxing will speak for itself, the confidence has risen.
"I am confused by the people who think he wins. I understand his fans wanting him to win but what the f*** are they thinking? I will end this man.
"Last year I f***** around and showboated but this time it will just be a knockout."
Strong words Paul, wonder what KSI has to say about that one?
