When Paolo Costa ‘knocked out’ Logan Paul 

In the latest episode, number 353, skateboarder and actor Rob Dyrdek joined the trio. The talks seesawed from Logan’s WWE beginning to Rob’s skateboarding career.

With some eight to ten minutes left, Logan, as a way of checking with Rob, said, “A little bit different of a question but, kind of similar but I want to ask it because I believe there’s a kernel of value in it for a specific subset of go-getters uh when you wipe out when you eat s**t on that skateboard. why do you get back on that board yeah, I’ve always had trouble not just skate, I’ve tried it BMX dirt bike razor when I f**k myself up or the thing that I’m using it’s really hard for me to pick it back up man I get scared out of out of the hobby….”

And when Rob checked, “What about getting knocked out?

Immediately, the Maverick responded by saying that he had yet to face a knockout. The conversation followed with Rob mentioning when Paolo Costa knocked him out during a sparring session.  

And Logan immediately confessed that the whole sequence was fake and clickbait. Taken aback, Rob’s expressions were that of disbelief!

At a time when he was prepping for the big fight, Logan visited Costa. The two engaged in light sparring inside the ring, followed by mat wrestling. While inside the ring, a right cross from Costa blacked out Paul on the canvas.

Costa and his trainer later commended Paul for his wrestling skills.
