Twitter in shambles after Logan Paul teases ‘major announcement,’ tags UFC boss Dana White

***UPDATE: Logan Paul dropped his “major announcement” alongside a photo of his new deal with UFC and Dana White RIGHT HERE.

I guess it would be too much to hope for Logan Paul joining Power Slap league, and I have a hard time believing Paul would lock himself into a UFC contract, so the most likely scenario is the YouTube star will announce a sponsorship deal between UFC and his PRIME energy drink on Tuesday.

“Major announcement tomorrow,” Paul wrote on Twitter, tagging UFC President Dana White in the process.

UPDATE: That announcement has since been revealed RIGHT HERE.

White may not like Jake Paul, but he’s got nothing but love for Logan — to the point where he’s “not saying no” to a potential fight inside the cage. That may explain why the combat sports community is having a meltdown on social media, perhaps forgetting that no celebrity signing will ever top this embarrassing (and costly) experiment.

Paul, 27, a competent collegiate wrestler who has experience (but no wins) as a pugilist, has been calling for a Paddy Pimblett fight when “The Baddy” returns from injury later this year.
