24-year-old Jake Paul has been quite vocal about his thoughts on Dana White. However, his brother Logan Paul has been cordial and respectful of the UFC President. ‘The Maverick’ has talked about his inclination towards mixed martial arts and the UFC in particular. Almost a year back, he also uploaded a video in which he sparred with Paulo Costa. Even Joe Rogan acknowledged that Logan Paul looked good against ‘Borrachinha’.

Logan Paul has once again made the headlines this week. The 26-year-old ended his five-year-long association with CAA and has now signed with William Morris Endeavor. This is bigger than him simply switching talent agencies as this transition could translate into the equation between the Ohio native and Dana White changing forever.

There is a strong link between the two; Endeavor Group Holdings is a talent and media agency that owns and operates WME as well as the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

With Logan Paul now on WME’s list and under the Endeavor umbrella, there is a strong possibility of a collaboration of sorts between the YouTube star and Dana White. For now, Paul has his eyes set on making it big in the boxing world. He even revealed that he has moved to Puerto Rico with his brother in order to shift his entire focus to the sport.

Only time will tell if fans will ever get to see Logan Paul grapple, wrestle, attempt flying knees, and strike inside the UFC octagon. But so far, things are looking good for ‘The Maverick’.

Logan Paul turned down a multi-million dollar business deal

Logan Paul pulled off the impossible in June. The 26-year-old got into the ring with inarguably the best boxer on the planet, Floyd Mayweather. This was a huge cash grab for ‘Pretty Boy’ as Logan Paul brought a lot of fresh eyes to the exhibition because of his wild social media fame.

However, Paul did not take this fight lightly. Even though no results were officially announced, many saw the Ohio native’s ability to go the distance with ‘Money’ Mayweather as a moral win.

On the latest ‘Impaulsive’ podcast episode, Logan Paul and Mike Majlak shared a fascinating story about a lucrative business opportunity. A wealthy man offered Paul a multi-million dollar deal while on a brief vacation in Spain. IMPAULSIVE co-host Mike Majlak shared that the man had shared no details but had guaranteed a lot of money. He added that while his two other companions on the trip agreed to sign on, Paul outright denied his offer. ‘The Maverick’ revealed that the man seemed disappointed with his rejection.

Mike Majlak talked about how they flew into Spain on a G5 private jet. They were supposed to fly into Ibiza and surrounding places on that same jet. However, after Logan Paul rejected the influential local man’s offer, they were instead offered a much smaller plane for the rest of their journey. The three podcast members laughed off this whole incident. They even compared the size and shape of that small airplane to a “toboggan“, a “hovercraft“, and a “flying burrito.”
