Logan Paul claims he would ‘destroy’ CM Punk as he targets sensational UFC fight after KSI defeat – The Sun

LOGAN PAUL has claimed he would "destroy" CM Punk as he targets a sensational UFC fight after his split-decision defeat to KSI.

The American was urged by his YouTube rival to pursue a career in MMA following their highly-publicised boxing match on Saturday night.

Eddie Hearn has claimed KSI vs Logan II was the highest-selling UK pay-per-view of the year, but Londoner “JJ” has already ruled out a trilogy fight.

The Brit star then suggested his internet foe fight failed 0-2 UFC reject CM Punk, and former high school wrestler Paul confirmed he'd be open to scrapping with the ex-WWE wrestler.

He told TMZ Sports: "I am … I think I would destroy CM Punk if I'm being honest. I don't know if anyone would disagree with that.

"I don't think I could, (beat him) I know I could. This isn't about CM Punk anymore, I would wanna fight an MMA fighter, or fight in the UFC, or Bellator."

41-year-old Punk hasn't fought since his convincing defeat to Mike Jackson at UFC 225 in 2018.

And that loss came two years after he was easily submitted by Mickey Gall in his MMA debut at UFC 203.

If any deal with the retired wrestler failed to occur, Paul has revealed that he's also keen on fighting Conor McGregor's friend Dillion Danis.

The MMA star was banned from the American's rematch with KSI but claimed that he had been offered £4million to box Logan's brother Jake.

The elder Paul added:  "I'd fight Dillon any day. "Dillon you're a f***ing p****, no one in the MMA community likes you, you got a few Twitter followers who are on your d*** but that's it.

"I can assure you that if you came over to the YouTube space we'd f*** you up, specifically me".

"Does Dillon put people in their seats? He's Conor McGregor's friend and he's a punk-ass kid who chirps on Twitter. He's got fat thumbs."
