The Paul brothers are back at it again, with Jake Paul backing his brother Logan 100,000% to win a fight against actual UFC fighter CM Punk.

The YouTubers have dipped their toe into the world of professional fighting, after Logan stepped into the boxing ring with KSI earlier this year, and his brother Jake had a round with KSIs brother Deji.

But the controversial star believes his equally-controversial bro could take another fighter in the ring, because hes an athlete as he slammed UFC boss Dana White for discounting the star.

After he drew with KSI – real name JJ Olatunji – back in August, Logan said his next stop was to head into the UFC Octagon because lad dreams big.

Dana White, who is the CEO of the whole shebang, poured cold water on Logans big dream though, as he said the vlogger, who rose to infamy in December after uploading a video of a dead body to Instagram, would be hurt badly.

Not so, said Jake, who feels the boss is thinking small.

100,000% – I mean Dana White is thinking small, he told TMZ when asked on Logans chances against CM. We had like a million people watching our first fight, the first time we ever done anything like that.

UFC doesnt do anything like that unless its Conor McGregor.

He was then quick to bring up why he thinks Logan could take the professional fighter.
