With both brothers actively competing under the Showtime banner, the transition could make sense if given the right opponent, according to Coker, who attended the Logan Paul vs. Floyd Mayweather exhibition match last Sunday in Miami.

Snatching necks: Relive the best guillotine choke submissions in Bellator history

  Snatching necks: Relive the best guillotine choke submissions in Bellator history Perhaps MMA's most underappreciated submission, the guillotine choke is simple yet effective. Since the promotion's conception, there have been a handful of guillotine submissions in Bellator that have stood out from the rest. Whether from the magnitude of the fight or…Since the promotion’s conception, there have been a handful of guillotine submissions in Bellator that have stood out from the rest. Whether from the magnitude of the fight or the slickness of jumping for a “guilly,” Bellator recently whittled down its list and compiled a highlight reel of all of its best guillotine choke submissions.

Logan Paul 's performance in Sunday's eight-round boxing exhibition with Floyd Mayweather in Florida impressed one of American MMA's most powerful figures. A YouTube personality who had lost his only pro boxing bout, Paul entered the Hard Rock Stadium as a massive underdog against Mayweather — a former Then, in the second round, he landed the same amount of punches as Mayweather (three), before the super welterweight took control of the show. Paul 's performance caught the eye of Bellator MMA boss Scott Coker , who praised Paul 's athletic abilities in an interview this week.

If Logan Paul wants to transition to mixed martial arts one day, he’s got a standing invitation to compete in Bellator MMA. On Sunday night, the YouTube superstar turned boxing hopeful spent eight rounds in the ring with Floyd Mayweather in a special boxing exhibition bout that aired on Showtime In the past, UFC president Dana White has scoffed at promoting Logan Paul or his brother Jake in a fight inside the octagon but Bellator president Scott Coker has a much different take when asked if he’d be interested in working with them. Coker was in attendance at the card in Miami where he

“Absolutely,” Coker told MMA Junkie on Thursday when asked if he’d be interested in Logan Paul fighting for Bellator. “Yeah, and we wouldn’t do it, like, ‘OK, you’ve got to go fight, you know, Gegard Mousasi’ or, ‘You’ve got to go fight (Vadim) Nemkov’ or something or the tournament winner vs. Jake Paul.”

A few years ago, Coker and Logan Paul met for lunch in the days surrounding the Super Bowl. Coker has expressed admiration for Logan Paul since then but has been particularly impressed with both brothers’ improvement in combat sports. Now that the brothers and Bellator are both under the Showtime umbrella, Coker’s phone has blown up.

“Listen, these kids are athletic,” Coker said. “They’re getting better, but they have a good striking game with their hands. They have a good wrestling background and started learning jujitsu. We’d put them in there with people of their record and their experience level. I think we’d have some really interesting fights. Let me tell you, everybody and their uncle will wants to fight these guys. I’ve already been getting calls all day.

Bellator president Scott Coker had his own opinions about Logan Paul ’s future. And in the mind of the now-Showtime hosted promotional head, if Paul is interested in taking the jump over to MMA, Bellator would be more than willing to have him. Coker added that he and Paul had actually spoken about the possibility two years ago, with Paul telling him at the time that he intended to focus on his boxing career. If, by some happenstance, either Logan or his brother Jake would like to try their hand at MMA, however, Coker wouldn’t be putting them immediately into high profile bouts against star talents.

Logan Paul says he’s a "wrestler at heart" so he would definitely be interested in an MMA fight and Bellator president Scott Coker would " absolutely " give him a shot if he wanted to test himself in the sport. If Logan Paul wants to transition to mixed martial arts one day, he’s got a standing invitation to compete in Bellator MMA. On Sunday night, the YouTube superstar turned boxing hopeful spent eight rounds in the ring with Floyd Mayweather in a special boxing exhibition bout that aired on Showtime pay-per-view.

“We don’t even have them signed for MMA. But, ‘Hey, I want to fight them.’ Just calm down. Everybody calm down. They bring a lot of hype. They bring a lot to the game, and they create a lot of excitement. Look at what they did for that exhibition with Floyd. It created a lot of excitement.”

The Pauls’ ability to generate interest from demographics not usually acquainted with combat sports strikes Coker as impressive. This was exemplified when he went to visit his 14-year-old niece earlier this week, who only knew who one of the Paul vs. Mayweather combatants was.

“My niece lives in Jacksonville. I went to see her before I came up here,” Coker said. “This will just lay the landscape for you. I said, ‘Hey, did you watch the fight?’ She says, ‘No, who fought?’ I said, ‘Logan Paul had a fight, you know?’ And she’s like, ‘Oh,my God. Logan Paul. Logan Paul. He’s the greatest. Oh, I love him on YouTube’ whatever, or Instagram. And I’m like, ‘OK, well, did you watch a fight?’ She said, ‘Who did he fight?’ And I said, ‘He fought Floyd Mayweather.’ And she’s like, ‘Well, who’s that?’ She had no idea who Floyd Mayweather was, but she knew who Logan Paul was. She knows the Paul Brothers.
