Paul, for example, landed four shots to Mayweather's three in the opening round, and finished with a surprising flurry of constant, but largely ineffective, punches.Then, in the second round, he landed the same amount of punches as Mayweather (three), before the super welterweight took control of the show.
Paul's performance caught the eye of Bellator MMA boss Scott Coker, who praised Paul's athletic abilities in an interview this week."This kid has shown athletic ability to go in there with Floyd," he told MMA Fighting. "The thing with Floyd, come on, how many people could do that? Go eight rounds with Floyd," Coker later said.
"You can't tell me Floyd at some point in the fight [wasn't] trying to take it to him and he couldn't put him away. So to me, that is a victory for Logan, as far as I'm concerned. As far as combat
"Was it a great fight? No, it was a lot of dirty boxing going on in that fight but let's face it, Floyd usually goes and closes the gap and takes care of business and he didn't do it this time."
Logan Paul appears to have an invite to fight in Bellator MMAThough Logan and his brother Jake are both combat sports novices, they have taken the fighting world by storm because of their uncanny ability to market themselves while trolling actual fighters.
Speaking after the exhibition, a reporter asked Logan if he'd ever transition into MMA.
"Yeah I'd do MMA for sure," said Paul at the post-fight media event. "I am a good grappler. I'm a wrestler at heart."Reacting to Paul's comments, Coker said he'd "absolutely" welcome Paul into his Bellator MMA cage, and match him appropriately so that he is not out of his depth.
Coker continued: "I definitely would put them in the cage. When I say that, they're not going to go out and fight in a real fight against a guy like Gegard Mousasi," he said, referencing the company's current middleweight champion."We'd treat them like any other fighter with the experience that they have and take it from there."
