Logan Paul knows a thing or two about MMA.
The YouTube-star-turned-WWE-wrestler-and-boxer got his hands on UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya and UFC featherweight champ Alexander Volkanovski in a friendly grappling session. And to many’s surprise, Paul somewhat held his own in the footage that was released on the Instagram stories of Paul and Adesanya.
You can watch Paul’s training session with Adesanya and Volkanovski in the video above.

Paul, like his younger brother Jake Paul, has also had an influence on the combat sports world.
He fought fellow influencer KSI in both amateur and professional boxing bouts back in 2018 and 2019, which ended in a draw and then split decision loss. He competed again in 2021 in a boxing exhibition with Floyd Mayweather, fighting to the final bell in a no decision ruling.
Paul, who has a background in amateur wrestling, qualified for the state-level Ohio High School Athletic Association Division I Wrestling Individual Championships in 2013.
He’s enjoyed great success as a WWE performer in the past year.
