‘The worst ass-whooping you’ve ever seen’: Dana White predicts one-sided beatdown for Logan Paul against Floyd Mayweather (VIDEO)
Paul, who has boxed just twice before - earning one draw and one defeat to British YouTuber KSI - has landed a blockbuster pay-per-view clash with the 50-0 Mayweather in a matchup that has Paul's YouTube fans buzzing with excitement, but longtime aficionados of combat sport scratching their heads.
One man who is less than impressed with the matchup is UFC president White, who explained that, while he has no issue with the two Paul brothers looking to make money by fighting, the thought of Logan taking on one of the sport's all-time greats is a ludicrous one.Also on rt.com Marvel-ous: YouTube boxing rookie Logan Paul targets ‘Thor’ star Hemsworth after Mayweather fight
"Listen, I understand these kids want to make some money and they do what they've gotta do and say what they've gotta say to try to get in there and make money," he said.
"This is going to be such a one-sided, ridiculous ass-whooping, it's not even gonna be funny. It's gonna be... it's gonna be bad.
"I don't dislike either one of these kids. I don't know these kids, I don't dislike these kids. They're doing their thing. Good for them, they're trying to make some money, whatever.
"But if Floyd Mayweather really shows up and goes in there and fights this kid, it's gonna be an ass-whooping like nobody has ever seen before."Also on rt.com ‘My brother’s f*cked!’: Jake Paul SLAMS sibling Logan over Floyd Mayweather fight (VIDEO)
Some uneducated fans have suggested that Logan's huge size and strength advantage will somehow play out to his benefit against Mayweather, but White said Mayweather's boxing skill and sheer speed will dismantle the bigger man on fight night.
"Logan's going to find out what speed is," he said.
"Speed is power. When you get hit with sh*t you don't see coming, and Floyd Mayweather starts putting it on you, it's not even going to be a fight – it's going to be ridiculous. It's going to be the worst ass-whooping you've ever seen.
