Logan Paul has revealed his aspiration to make his MMA debut as part of the undercard for a potential bout between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg.
The two influential figures have engaged in a Twitter exchange teasing a cage fight.
Remarkably, this possibility is gaining traction, supported by a representative from the Italian Ministry of Culture who confirmed the potential use of Rome's iconic Colosseum as the venue for the event.
Adding to the intrigue, Musk was captured in a photo alongside former MMA star Georges St-Pierre, as well as John Danaher and Lex Friedman, suggesting a training session took place.

With that being said, Paul put his name into the hat to enter the cage in what would be his MMA debut.
Paul has already shown that he is capable of entering combat sports following his crossover exhibition fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr.
This was followed up by his appearances in WWE as he renewed his contract to return to the organization this spring.

“I’ll be honest, I pitched it. I pitched it internally, I pitched it to the [executives] that be, if Elon Musk and [Mark] Zuckerberg fight, I will do my UFC debut on the undercard. I’ll fight for free, for charity,” says Paul
Naturally, the question arises: who would be Logan Paul's opponent? It seems he has already lined up Paddy Pimblett for the challenge.
Pimblett is renowned for his ability to change weight classes between fights. Interestingly, it is precisely this attribute that led Paul to see Pimblett as the perfect opponent—one he believes he could overpower and dominate.
“You know who I want to fight actually cause that b**** a** Andrew Tate won’t fight me. Give me Paddy Pimblett. Give me ‘Paddy the Baddy.’
“In the offseason, that boy looks like a blimp and he’ll come up to my weight class and I’ll wallop him. He’s too small when he cuts weight. When he doesn’t cut weight he’s a f****** horseshoe,” says Paul
