Could a Logan Paul vs. Anderson Silva boxing match really be on the way?
Dillon Danis, jiu jitsu ace and close friend of Conor McGregor, leaked a DM on social media that suggests an event could be in the works for September. Per the DM, a “huge event” is being planned for September 19 in Dubai.
“There will be a huge event in Dubai September 19,” a message from fifth-degree Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt Viktor Doria read. “Main event is Anderson Silva vs Logan Paul boxing match. Would you like to fight a grappling match adcc rules and referees?”

Just how legitimate or serious the message is, however, remains to be seen.
Just six weeks ago, Paul fought Floyd Mayweather Jr. to a draw in their eight-round exhibition match. Silva, meanwhile, earned a win over former boxing champ Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. last month.
If a bout is to happen, who do you think will come out on top?
