UFC President Dana White has shared some high praise for Logan Paul following his WWE WrestleMania 39 match.
It was officially announced last week that Endeavor has purchased WWE and will merge it into one sports and entertainment company with the UFC.
Since the announcement, Dana White has discussed this merger, and the UFC’s relationship with WWE.
Speaking with TMZ Sports, White discussed Logan Paul’s progress in the ring, arguing that WWE has hit a home run with the influencer.
Believing that Paul is an incredible talent, White said:
“I don’t know jack s**t about wrestling, but let’s tell you what I do know. They hit a f**king home run with that guy, an absolute home run.
“He is incredibly talented. He’s an amazing athlete. And yes, I was blown away by watching him.
“So obviously, if you have a scenario where somebody is that good and could go over to the WWE, it’s going to happen.”
Paul most recently wrestled at WrestleMania 39, losing to Seth Rollins in the social media star’s third ever singles bout.
White and Paul have something of a working relationship, with Paul and KSI’s Prime Hydration named the official drink of the UFC in late-January.
