Logan Paul Discouraged from Jiu-Jitsu after Rolling with Volkanovski: “I Won’t Be Doing BJJ Again”

Logan Paul, a YouTube personality who is now better known for his time in the WWE and participation in boxing matches, has credible experience in grappling from before his rise to fame. He ranked fifth in the Ohio High School Athletic Association state championships in 2013 before joining Ohio University’s collegiate Division I wrestling team.
Although he withdrew from the program after one year, he still possesses some of his wrestling skills, as evidenced in grappling exchanges with UFC champions Israel Adesanya and Alexander Volkanovski.

During the visit, Volkanovski grappled with WWE star Logan Paul and jiu-jitsu ace Craig Jones. In a brief sequence from the video, Paul found himself in the bottom position while Volkanovski worked his way to get a submission. Logan Paul humorously remarked that he now understands why Volkanovski is the UFC featherweight champion.

On the IMPAULSIVE podcast, Logan Paul shared his experience grappling with Volkanovski.

He stated: “Man, you [Alexander Volkanovski] are so strong and dominant, and you put me in a body lock and I felt like you could have tightened your leg so much… Literally [could have] split me in half. I’m not doing BJJ again. Paul added, “We were drilling this body triangle… And he goes, ‘Oh, my legs are short and I don’t really do the body triangle often’… And when we actually go to do it, he literally almost kills me.

Logan Paul is thrilled that Alexander Volkanovski and Israel Adesanya are the first athletes signed by his company. He stated, “We have always been looking to get into the athlete space and have been very particular with who we wanted to stamp. Floated a lot of names by. So when we found out that you guys were equally as interested in us as we were in you, it was a 100% green light for me.

While Jake Paul is gearing toward making his MMA debut sometime next year, Logan is unlikely to follow. His next major appearance will be at WWE’s Money in the Bank event.
