WATCH: UFC champ Israel Adesanya outclasses Logan Paul during wrestling practice

Wrestler turned WWE celebrity Logan Paul was recently captured alongside two of the top champions in the UFC. The Maverick was observed grappling with UFC Middleweight Champion Israel Adesanya and UFC Featherweight Champion Alexander Volkanovski.

It was a friendly session, where Paul evidently gained experience with the supreme MMA athletes.

Why are Israel Adesanya and Logan Paul training together?

Logan has made a significant impact on the world of combat sports. The 28-year-old initially garnered attention in the boxing scene, where he even faced arguably the greatest boxer of all time, Floyd Mayweather, and achieved a result that wasn’t a loss.

It wasn’t a victory either, but managing a draw against Mayweather is an extraordinary accomplishment for an individual who isn’t known for throwing punches at a professional level.

Subsequently, Logan entered the largest wrestling promotion in the world, WWE, and engaged in a feud with two of the current roster’s biggest superstars, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins.

He even made a special entrance at WrestleMania 39. Although Paul still holds a WWE contract, he’s not stopping there.

A video circulating on social media has sparked speculation in the combat sports community regarding Logan’s potential foray into MMA. Paul can be seen participating in a training session with Israel Adesanya and Alexander Volkanoski.

While it’s uncertain whether Logan is eyeing the UFC or preparing for his next WWE match. One thing is certain: he only trains with the best fighters.

Has Logan Paul ever been in an MMA bout?

Paul has received mostly positive reviews for his WWE stint, and after Rollins’ match. Fans on social media began speculating about his next opponent. Although he hasn’t appeared since the grand event, his return is expected to happen soon.

The 28-year-old hasn’t competed in a boxing match since his exhibition bout against Mayweather ended in a draw in June 2021. Meanwhile, his younger brother Jake Paul is scheduled to face Nate Diaz in a boxing ring in August.

Israel Adesanya

Volkanovski will defend his title in a unification bout against interim champion Yair Rodriguez in the main event of UFC 290 in July. Adesanya, on the other hand, is expected to headline UFC 293 in September, marking the promotion’s return to Sydney, Australia.
