Logan Paul breaks silence on WWE-UFC merger

YouTube megastar Logan Paul recently commented on the merger between WWE and UFC under TKO Group Holdings Inc.

Paul’s last match in World Wrestling Entertainment came against Ricochet at SummerSlam 2023, where The Maverick reigned supreme. He has since been training for his upcoming boxing match against Dillon Danis, scheduled for October 14, 2023.

In a recent interview on The MMA Hour With Ariel Helwani, Logan Paul was asked if there were any talks between him and the Stamford-based company about promoting his boxing match against Danis.

The Maverick mentioned that they did talk about it and believed that after the merger of the two giants, it would be massive if World Wrestling Entertainment would promote his boxing matches in the future against the right opponent.

“Yeah, especially now with the merger, right? The WWE, UFC, and TKO merger, I just think it would be massive. WWE is such an innovative, adaptable enterprise, and if they wanna get on board to promote a boxing fight with me, depending on who the opponent is, [it] has to be the right opponent, could be huge.” [3:19 – 3:43]
