Logan Paul has been training with the current UFC Middleweight champion Israel Adesanya and the reigning UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski.

Taking to Instagram, following their labor inside the gym, Logan Paul shared the clip in which Israel Adesanya grappled with him.

Cool and composed, Adesanya is well-known for his striking in the UFC. It is mostly with assistance from his kickboxing training that Adesanya beat a number of stars inside the cage. Out of the 24 fights he has won, 16 have come via knockouts, but 0 has come by way of submission. Of course, grappling is not a component Adesanya heavily relies upon while fighting. Being 6′ 4″ and frequently switching stances, the 33-year-old Nigerian mixed martial artist likes to utilize his reach and striking accuracy. In the video shared by Paul, ‘The Last Style Bender’ taps out the WWE star using a ‘triangle choke’.

In one photo, the three are seen holding PRIME, in another Logan Paul is seen kicking a heavy bag. In another photo, ‘The Maverick’ revealed Israel Adesanya’s appearance on IMPAULSIVE. However, the post which has apparently caught the greatest economy of attention is the clip in which ‘Izzy’ taps Paul out. Despite his large physique, Paul could hardly defend himself with ‘Izzy’ on the floor. In fact, the latter caught ‘The Maverick’ with a triangle choke and gradually submitted him.
