Earlier this week, Bellator MMA fighter Dillon Danis shared what he claimed was a textual content from Brazilian Jiu Jitsu nice Viktor Doria, who claimed that Logan Paul and Anderson Silva would headline a September nineteenth occasion in Dubai. As Danis is a prick of the best order, I made a decision to take it with a grain of salt, however Paul’s supervisor, Jeff Levin, now tells ESPN that his cost is certainly “discussing a boxing match” with “The Spider.”
Per Levin, they’ve but to find out whether or not the combat can be an exhibition or a sanctioned match. So far as why Doria would have insider information, BJJ is large within the UAE, therefore why the Abu Dhabi Fight Membership is the premier no-gi grappling competitors. It wouldn’t be shocking in any respect to see a grappling match on the cardboard.
Paul (0-1) spent eight uneventful rounds within the ring with Floyd Mayweather final month, gassing out round midway by the eight-round exhibition and utilizing extra clinching than punching within the later rounds. Silva (2-1, 1 KO), in contrast, completely clowned Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. two weeks later.
It’ll be a sideshow identical to all the lesser Paul’s ring appearances, but when it means Silva will get rewarded for flipping the script on Junior, I’m down.
