On the other hand, it was rumored that his brother, Logan Paul, would square off with the UFC legend, Anderson Silva. However, this gigantic encounter couldn’t come to life, leaving the casual boxing lovers disheartened. Recently, ‘The Problem Child’, who was in an interview with MMA Junkie, spoke about the Paul vs Silva fight.

He said, “Yeah, I honestly, I saw that too. I knew that Logan vs Anderson fight wasn’t happening, but I don’t know what the reasoning was behind it, and I didn’t know why they came to an agreement. So I don’t know who’s Logan gonna fight. I’ve been trying to get him. I’m throwing names at him all the time.”
