‘I’m proud of you’ – Jake Paul shares footage from meeting with WWE and UFC legend Brock Lesnar who heaped praised on him

WWE legend Brock Lesnar heaped praise on Logan and Jake Paul when he met ‘The Problem Child’ for the first time.

The social media celebrity siblings have launched combat sports careers in recent years, and they have both become prominent names in fighting.

Logan shared the ring with fellow YouTube star KSI and boxing legend Floyd Mayweather before transitioning to professional wrestling and impressing in the WWE.

Meanwhile, Jake has amassed a 6-0 professional boxing record by beating, among others, Ben Askren, Tyron Woodley, and Anderson Silva – who are all former MMA champions.

After beating Silva on October 29, ‘The Problem Child’ joined his big brother in Saudi Arabia ahead of his match with WWE champion Roman Reigns at the Crown Jewel pay-per-view event.

Ahead of ‘The Maverick’s’ impressive but unsuccessful Undisputed WWE Universal title bid, Jake bumped into Lesnar who had nothing but praise for the divisive brothers.

“I’m excited for you guys. I followed you guys. I’m proud of you guys, you’ve done well,” the former UFC champion told a beaming Jake who is a big fan.

This is not the first time Lesnar has praised Logan and Jake who have impressed him by creating their own audience and making their own opportunities in various fields.

“Great for YouTube. I’m happy for those guys. They worked at something. They built their name up. They thought outside the box, they promoted themselves,” he said in March.

Jake responded to the love from the Beast Incarnate on social media and his shock was clear.

“Wow Brock Lesnar supporting my brother and I is crazy, we loved him and used to watch him all the time growing up. GO CHASE YOUR DREAMS TODAY,” he tweeted.

The 25-year-old is currently looking for his next opponent and has been linked to a fight with Tommy Fury – the undefeated British boxing prospect who happens to be the brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

They’ll look finally set to settle their differences in the ring in early 2023 after a bitter war of words, numerous false starts, and public negotiations about an eagerly anticipated clash.

Alternatively, Paul could fight MMA legend Nate Diaz who is currently a free agent after ending his 15-year UFC stay and expressing an interest in crossing over into a new sport.
