Logan Paul dishes on grappling session with Israel Adesanya and Alexander Volkanovski: ‘They murdered me’

The YouTube personality got to feel the power of City Kickboxing’s UFC champions in a friendly training session, admitting they totally kicked his butt.

Love him or hate him, Logan Paul isn’t afraid to take advantage of the many opportunities his celebrity presents him with.

When World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) calls and offers him a match at WrestleMania? He says, “Yes.” If the boys from City Kickboxing are in town and want to grapple? He says “Yes” to that, too, even if it means getting his ass handed to him the whole time.

We’re still not sure exactly how Paul ended up doing a session with UFC Middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya, Featherweight roost-ruler, Alexander Volkanovski, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace, Craig Jones. There were hints of a PRIME sports drink sponsorship deal in the Instagram photos shared, but those bottles are everywhere these days — all over UFC, in every gutter around the city — so who knows.

What we do know is that Paul got an education that day in levels. Videos of the friendly grapple show Adesanya hitting Logan with a front headlock and trip takedown, while Volkanovski showed the YouTube personality some back technique.

“The Great” was very complimentary of Paul.

“Good session in the books!” he exclaimed in an Instagram story.

“‘Good session,’ yeah right,” Logan replied in his own story. “They murdered me.”
