JOE ROGAN has claimed that Logan Paul could BEAT Floyd Mayweather… if the pair had an MMA fight.
The legendary UFC commentator aired his views prior to the official announcement between the pair's scheduled boxing exhibition bout on February 20.
Like many, Rogan stated that when it comes to a boxing match, it is Mayweather that will come out on top.
Paul, 25, only turned professional last year in a losing effort to fellow YouTuber KSI.
Yet UFC commentator Rogan tipped the American to beat Mayweather, 43, should they have signed a contract to fight inside the octagon.
He referenced Paul's amateur wrestling background and in particular, a video of 'The Maverick' training with MMA star Paulo Costa.
Speaking on the Joe Rogan Experience in September, the 53-year-old said: "One thing I will tell you – Logan Paul is a really good athlete and he's an enormous man.
"Now if it was an MMA fight, I would pick Logan Paul. Listen to me – there's a video of Logan Paul wrestling with Paulo Costa.
"It's a real, live wrestling sparring session where he is exhibiting real skill.
"He knows how to scramble, he's got real wrestling skill. I think he wrestled in college as well.
Logan Paul is a really good athlete and he's an enormous man. Now if it was an MMA fight, I would pick Logan Paul.
"Either way, him with Paulo Costa. Paulo is the UFC's number one contender in the middleweight division. And a wrecking machine.
"The two of those guys, they're doing wrestling drills and sparring, and Logan Paul is hanging in there, man, with an elite MMA world championship-caliber fighter.
"A guy that went to war with Yoel Romero and walked him down. Paulo Costa's a monster and Logan Paul is hanging in there.
"I don't care what anybody says – what I saw in that, I'm like that kid is impressive."
