Logan Paul felt the heavy hands of UFC contender Paulo
Henrique Costa, and it’s an experience the YouTube celebrity
likely won’t soon forget.
Paul, who owns an 0-1 professional boxing record, posted a video on
Monday of his sparring session with Costa at the UFC Performance
Institute in Las Vegas. The match didn’t end well for Paul, as he
was knocked out cold by a right hand from the middleweight.

The video also shows Paul in some grappling exchanges with Costa,
and the footage there appears to be a little bit better for the
Ohio native, who does have a high-school wrestling background. Paul
faced British YouTuber KSI in a professional boxing match televised
on Dazn, falling via split decision on Nov. 9, 2019.
Costa is expected to challenge reigning UFC champion Israel
Adesanya at a future event.
