UFC News Round up: Logan Paul teases UFC debut
It appears like YouTube star Logan Paul may soon enter the realm of mixed martial arts after he recently teased a “big” announcement with Dana White of the UFC. Paul tweeted a video of himself speaking in various ways about the UFC over the last few years on January 30, 2023. The video also featured a clip of the YouTuber purportedly signing a contract while a beaming Dana White peered over his shoulder.

Not only that, but Paul also stated that he desired Paddy Pimblett as a rival. This is hardly surprising because Pimblett and Jake Paul have previously engaged in verbal sparring.

Jorge Masvidal upset with Conor McGregor
Jorge Masvidal, the 11th-ranked welterweight contender, will return at UFC 287 to face Gilbert Burns in a match that could once again revitalize his career. Jorge Masvidal needs to defeat Burns at all costs after dropping his last three fights and shouldn’t concentrate on anyone else besides “Durinho.” ‘Gamebred’ Masvidal is still eager to compete against Conor McGregor.
In a conversation with the MMA Hour, Masvidal shared his thoughts on fighting “Notorious” and clarified the delay in the potential super-fight. “I want Conor [McGregor], but Conor doesn’t want me,” the BMF champion remarked. “It’s awful, you know. He doesn’t desire it. He has disregarded the UFC’s attempts to bring it up each time. I am larger. I think I am faster than him. I hit harder than he does, as we both know. I got it. It’s not the best stylistically for him or his brand.”
Joe Rogan hunts down a duck
A UFC commentator recently shared an Instagram video of roasted duck with the caption, “Part 2, hunting camp duck.” Later, after tasting the duck, Rogan praised its flavor in the video.

The UFC analyst has a variety of interests, but he seems to have a soft spot for hunting. While some campaigners oppose animals’ death, hunting offers them a special connection to nature that cannot be replaced.
