Logan is currently a YouTube star with over 20 million subscribers on the video sharing platform. But before becoming a YouTube sensation,  Paul was a young wrestler. The skills certainly showed up during his short fight against Costa. The UFC fighter was also impressed by the Logan’s performance.

I did boxing sparring last morning with Logan Paul,” Costa said. “Logan Paul is a tough guy. He make my lip a little hurt. I’m a tough guy but he [is] also. We did a boxing spar without mouthpieces, mouth guards. We are tough guys. We’re not afraid to take some hits like Adesanya [is]. He’s scared. He avoided the fight [with Romero]. Me, no. Logan Paul not avoid fight.”
