Well, it might be safe to say that YouTube sensations turned boxers, Logan and Jake Paul, aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. It is rumored that Logan is in talks to compete against UFC legend Anderson Silva in a boxing bout, and it might actually happen. Bloody Elbow is here to provide the betting lines for this potential matchup that nobody ever expected to be a thing.

Online gambling site SportsBetting.ag has the MMA icon opening up as a betting underdog to a younger, and much less experienced, Paul. Silva’s initial offering sees him with a moneyline of +160, with a successful $100 bet bringing back a total of $260. As for Logan, his opening betting line sits at a somewhat surprising favored cost of -200. That means a winning $100 wager on the combat sports noob would see a payout of $150 altogether. The website states that this fight must take place in 2021 for action.

The 46-year-old Silva had a wildly successful MMA career (34-11-1), including a dominant run as the UFC’s middleweight champion. “The Spider” also recently looked sharp in a pro boxing win against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, that surprised fans and critics alike, and extended his boxing record to 2-1. As for the 26-year-old Paul, he is fresh off of going the distance with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition bout. It still blows my mind that it actually happened. Logan’s official boxing record is 0-1.
