Logan Paul was photographed with his brother Jake at a Lakers game for the first time since quitting marijuana, as seen below.
The YouTuber-turned-pro-boxer Jake Paul recently dropped a couple of hints which indicates that he is preparing to make a switch to the world of MMA. He has been heavily linked to MMA more than any boxer in history. Jake Paul’s girlfriend also posted dirty mouth photo.
Jake Paul drops hints about joining MMA
On Friday, Paul released the following tweet that showed himself training kicks for the first time.
“1st day training kicks. Doubted every step of the way.. but kick down the doors of the doubters. @[email protected]”

What’s every bit as noteworthy as Paul revealing that he’s training leg kicks is the fact that he went out of his way to tag Bellator‘s and PFL‘s Twitter handles, hinting that these could be where he ultimately takes his finished MMA product if and when it’s ready for presentation.
Scott Coker has already confirmed that he would be more than happy to welcome Paul into the Bellator fold with open arms. And Friday night, an unconfirmed report began to circulate that Paul is in talks to sign with the PFL. However, UFC was missed out but it is mostly because of the YouTuber’s bitter relationship with company president Dana White.
However, over the past week, Paul did state that he would be open to an MMA fight against Jorge Masvidal if White provided better pay and benefits to UFC fighters. As expected, White did not comply, which leaves a Jake Paul/UFC partnership just as unlikely today as it’s been over the entire past year. We will have to wait and see if Paul actually steps foot in the world of MMA.
